John F. Sullivan

May 6, 1957 ~ July 12, 2023 (age 66) 66 Years Old


John F. Sullivan, 66 of Marlborough, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, July 12, 2023, at his home surrounded by his loving family.

John was born in Worcester, MA, the son of Marie Jean (Martin) Sullivan and the late Thomas J. Sullivan.

He was raised in Northborough MA, graduated from Algonquin High School, Class of ’75, and earned his BA in Accounting from Bentley University. He owned and operated Coverall Painting for over 30 years diligently ensuring that his clients loved their homes as much as he loved his own.

John is survived by his wife of 38 years, Miette M. (Duguay) Sullivan, two sons, Nicholas J. Sullivan, Shane P. Sullivan, and his daughter Oliva M. Sullivan, all of Marlborough. He is also survived by his mother Marie J. Sullivan of S. Yarmouth, three sisters, Jean M. Anderson of S. Dennis, Joyce A. Sullivan and her husband Peter Albert of VT, and Joann Sullivan of S. Yarmouth, many nieces and nephews, and his beloved basset hound Penny.

Besides his father, he was predeceased by a brother-in-law Robert Anderson, and his two best friends John White and Skip Manning.

John was witty, charming, goofy, patient, selfless, supportive, and endlessly loving. He loved spaghetti and meatballs. He called his mother and sister Jean every day. In his later years, he was ceaselessly happy spending time at home cooking dinner for his wife and learning about Netflix.

In his own subtle ways, John touched the lives of many and will be missed every day.

A Memorial Service will be held on, Friday, July 21 at 11am at the Short & Rowe Funeral Home, 95 W. Main St., Marlborough, MA.
