Philip J. Sullivan

Philip J. Sullivan, 59, of the Plantsville section of Southington, passed away suddenly in the family homestead on Tuesday, September 14, 2021.

Philip was born on August 20, 1962 in New Britain, one of 10, to the late Donald W. Sullivan Sr. and Ruth (Rogers) Sullivan.

Phil graduated from Southington High School in 1980. He worked for Donald Sullivan & Sons Plumbing & Heating for many years as a fully licensed plumber, a license he proudly maintained his entire life. Philip loved playing tennis, cribbage, pool, ping pong and setback. As a kid he excelled in little league and senior league baseball. He was so athletic that the fans were never surprised when he caught a fly ball behind his back or made a forward flip at home plate, hence the nickname “Flip.” He loved his family, all sports, was interested in politics and current events.

After years of struggles, Phil turned his life around to care for his mother for the last 5 years of her life. Recently, his issues resurfaced causing great stress and pain. Philip is now in good hands with God in Heaven.

Phil is survived by his siblings; Donnie Sullivan Jr. (Shelagh), Tara Morrison, Arthur Sullivan Sr. (Patty), Stephen Sullivan Sr. (Diane), Marty Sullivan (Alison), Warren Sullivan, David Sullivan Sr. (Mandy) and Eve Sullivan (Jamie). He is also survived by many nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brother, Barton Sullivan. Phil was also so sad to hear that his grand-nieces, Bridget and Virginia, passed away recently.

On behalf of Philip’s grand-niece Lillian, born two months ago with a rare case of Hirschsprung’s disease and Short Bowel syndrome, in lieu of flowers, donations in Phil’s memory may be made to https://gofund.me/3e4d01df

A funeral service will be held at 11: 00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at the Plantsville Funeral Home, 975 S. Main St, Plantsville. Burial will follow in South End Cemetery, Southington. Calling hours will be held from 4 – 7 p.m. on Monday, September 20, 2021 at the Plantsville Funeral Home. For online condolences and directions, please visit www.plantsvillefuneralhome.com.
