Leather Frank Sullivan, 82

ROCKY POINT — Leather Frank Sullivan, 82, of Rocky Point and formerly of Sunset Harbor passed unexpectedly Saturday, December 11, 2021 at his home.

He was born August 10, 1939 in Brunswick County, one of six children born to Archie Harrison Sullivan and Tinnie Mintz Sullivan. In addition to his parents, Frank was preceded by his beloved wife, Jean Bradshaw Sullivan.

Frank is survived by his daughters, Deborah Johnston (Carl) and Abby Willetts (William); grandchildren, Lisa Higgins (Christopher), Crystal J. Wade (Joseph), Jennifer Willetts, Jeffrey Johnston (Michelle) and Payton Willetts; great grandchildren, Aubrey, Cameron, Kayelyn, and Ella Grace; brothers, Harry Sullivan and Thurman Sullivan (Linda); sisters, Mary Katherine King (Fred) and Joyce Hughes; many nieces, nephews, other extended family and friends.

Frank was a faithful member of Faith Community Chapel in Sunset Harbor where he and Jean lived for many years. In October of 2020 he moved to Rocky Point to be near his daughters and their children.  Oh my! Did Frank love those grandchildren and great grandchildren, yes he did. They brought joy into his life. Frank loved the outdoors. He could often be found shrimping, boating, or just being at the ocean. Frank also did a little wood working in his spare time.  He loved his family and will be greatly missed.
