Timothy S. Sullivan ’06
Timothy Sean Sullivan, 53, of Arrowsic, passed away Sunday, July 15, 2018 at The Highlands in Topsham. He was born on July 22, 1964, in Bath, to Catherine (King) and Howard Sullivan. He was the youngest of nine children. He was raised in Arrowsic, attended Bath schools and graduated from Morse High School in 1982. After high school, he started his 30-year work career at BIW, taking a short break from BIW to work at Quincy Shipyard in Massachusetts. While at BIW, Tim graduated from the Apprenticeship Program with a degree in ships production from Maine Maritime Academy. He had a superb work ethic and was proud to be an employee of BIW.
Tim was a true friend to his friends and was loved by many. This was evident by the amount of friends and family who visited and checked on his progress as he waged a fierce fight against Glioblastoma for almost 20 months.
Tim’s great joys in life were spending time with family and friends, riding his Harley, boating on the Kennebec, watching the ospreys on the river outside his home, volunteering at the Maine Maritime Museum, being a “Big Brother” to Zack, and working at BIW with his lifelong friends.
He is survived by siblings: Gloria Tibbetts of Gorham, Donna Walters of Indianapolis, Richard Sullivan of Buxton, Michael Sullivan of Arrowsic, Catherine Underwood of Bath, Brian Sullivan of Buffalo, and John Sullivan of Arrowsic; several nieces, nephews, grand nieces and nephews, a multitude of loving cousins, and his former wife and longtime friend, Lee Hicks. In addition to his parents, Timothy was predeceased by a brother, Howard Sullivan Jr.
