PEABODY – Richard Thomas Sullivan, of West Peabody, entered earthly life on September 17, 1928, and entered eternal life on Tuesday, November 14, 2023, at the age of 95 years.
He was the husband of the late Maria (Costanza) Sullivan, to whom he was married for 42 years.
Born in Wilmington, the son of the late Walter and Elsie (Howard) Sullivan, he grew up in Chelsea and moved to Peabody in 1961 from Altar. He graduated from Immaculate Conception High School in Revere, and often recalled those years with great affection.
Since its establishment in 1962, he has been a devoted and active member of St Adelaide Parish, his beloved spiritual home. From there, he made many lifelong friendships, and as a daily communicant, he cherished his time of prayer and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, always with the intentions of his family. He lived his life dedicated to his Roman Catholic faith and family.
His daughter, Audrey of Peabody, survives him. Additionally, his 102-year-old sister Geraldine Familia of Wilmington, his younger brother and sisters-in-law Owen and Mary of Hampstead, NH, and numerous nieces and nephews. As one of nine children, he was predeceased by his siblings, Pauline Harrington, Edward, Walter, Paul, John and Donald.
His funeral will be held Monday at 10:30 a.m. at St. Adelaide’s Church, 708 Lowell St., Peabody. Masses will begin at 10 a.m. with the recitation of the Rosary. Please gather directly at the church. Burial in Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett. Visiting hours are Sunday at Conway, Cahill-Brodeur Funeral Home, 82 Lynn St., Peabody from 2 to 5 p.m. Please invite relatives and friends.
