Continuing John C. Sullivan's Legacy.....
On behalf of the Sullivan family, I would like to thank everyone who expressed their deepest sympathies to us while we mourn the loss of our founder, John C. Sullivan. A special thanks to all of our fellow funeral directors who so willingly offered to assist us during this difficult time. Throughout the years, John's commitment to dignified, professional, and affordable funeral service was quite evident. He cared so much for the business that he started; consequently, he wanted to ensure the community that it would thrive even after he retired.
In December of 2009, John approached me to help him at the funeral home. He knew that I was an Enola resident and cared about the community as well. As the years passed by, I learned many lessons from him as he mentored and groomed me to someday take his place. In August of 2013, John and Nancy sold the funeral home to my wife, Windy, and myself. He wanted to enjoy his retirement and spend as much time with his family as possible. We were hoping that we would have many years together with him; however, God had other plans for him.
Each and every day, I think about John and what his presence in our lives meant to our community. He has set a very high standard that I hope to live up to. You have my solemn promise to treat your family the same way John did. When you read an obituary that we place in the newspaper, you will notice that we mention, "The Sullivan Funeral Home is honored to serve the family." We are honored that you call upon us at your most difficult time, and we place your needs above our own, just like John did.
