More Condolences
Due to the Visitation/Condolences Page expiration, thoughts have been transferred here for the memories of Timothy J. Sullivan

Roland Via (Holly Hill, FL)  February 26, 2008

Racing has lost one of it's greatest ambassadors. A gentleman with a smile, quick wit, and ever present salutations to make you feel special, Tim was a man who could get things done. While we may feel loss here on earth, Tim is at the big track in the sky trying to talk the France's into something and reveling in the company of his many racing friends who have passed. Tim, as we have heard you say so many times, "God Bless You, my friend". 

Gene Bergin (Palm Coast, FL)  February 26, 2008
I really enjoyed Tim's Friday luncheons at area restaurants. To spend some quality time with him was a real pleasure. He was a good friend and a marvelous person. He will be greatly missed.

Barbara Roush (Port Orange, FL)  February 26, 2008
Betty and family: my deepest sympathies to you during this difficult time. Volunteering at the Conklin Center alongside you and Tim will always be one of my favorite memories.

Nancy Jo Mosser (Daytona Beach, FL)  February 26, 2008
My deepest heartfelt sympathy to the Sullivan Family. Tim's magnanimous heart and great sense of humor will be missed by all. I certainly have a multitude of fond memories from his days serving as "Cultural Chairman" for the City of Ormond and being my mentor while I was with the City. May your individual memories of Tim, as well, be of comfort to you as time passes. Best wishes, Nancy Jo Mosser.

Jason Thomas - February 26th, 2008

Timmy, Patrick and family, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family. I had the honor of knowing Tim or Big Tim as my cousin Doug and I called him for thirty years. Growing up in the village was a lot of fun but going to Big Timís house made it a lot more fun. One memory I will never forget is how much Tim loved his plants and how often Doug and I would destroy them by playing baseball in his yard. Big Tim you may be gone but you will not be forgotten.

Dear Betty, Timmy and Patrick: What a very special man we have lost. I just loved him and always will!!

Every time I would walk in to your house, Tim always made me feel right at home...always greeted with a smile and a very warm heart. My dad loved him dearly and I know they are together again in heaven sharing some wonderful laughs. My whole family was blessed to have Tim as our very special friend. I love you guys! God Bless the whole Sullivan family. With Love, Suzy

There can be no doubt that Tim's love of life and devotion to his family and fellow man has assured him a warm welcome in Heaven. It was a honor to know him even a little, and have benefited from his knowledge and his unflagging helpfulness.

Victoria Harn - February 27th, 2008

To Betty, Timmy and Patrick: I knew Tim for many years and we shared a very special bond. I had the pleasure of working with Tim at DBCC and he named us "Tiny Tim" and "Miss Vicki". It always brings a smile to my face when I think back on those days. My heart is heavy with the thought of not being able to talk with him again but I know he is without pain and suffering and for that I am grateful. Please know you are all in my thoughts at this most difficult time. I know Timís memory will live on through all of you.

Jan Falsetti - February 27th, 2008

Dear Betty, Patrick & Timothy, I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Tim from my days of owning the restaurant called Granada Coffee Shop. I was lucky to have met your dad & became friends with him. He either ate breakfast or just came in for a cup of coffee almost every day. I have thought of him often, but had lost touch after I was married. He will be missed, as he was a fantastic human person. Again my deepest sympathy. Jan Falsetti

BOB AND DEB CAREY - February 27th, 2008


Deb Williams - February 27th, 2008

Tim Sullivan was one of those people that when you met him, you felt you had known him forever. He was a friend you could always count on. He was extremely helpful when I ventured to my first Speedweeks in 1984 as a reporter for United Press International. The motorsports community has lost a true friend. With deepest condolences to his family.

Alyce Thomas - February 27th, 2008

Dear Family of Tim, My deepest sympathy is extended to each of you. I have many fond memories of Tim. He was also present for me when my Bruce died in 2006 and I will forever be grateful. He, Fred Marik and others were delightful friends. I also remember Marilyn well. My best to his sons and to all. He will be remembered with fondness and smiles. Sincerely, Alyce Thomas

John & Marcia Stilwell, Charlotte, NC - February 28th, 2008

We extend our condolences to each of you and your families. Just remember, he is now in Heaven looking down on each of us, a better place forever.

Tobi Wood McDaniel - February 28th, 2008
