Albany---David Michael Sullivan, 49, passed away peacefully after a long illness on April 18 surrounded by people who loved him. David lived most of his life in the Albany Area. He graduated from Colonie Central HS and worked for the NYS Health Dept for several years. He was an extremely talented artist. He had a great love and knowledge of antiques, and was very interested in genealogy.
David was the youngest son of Robert (deceased) and Patricia Sullivan. He came into the world with great celebration, befitting his July 4th birthday.
David is survived by his sweet, and loving Mother Patricia. He is also survived by his loving husband Brian, who was David’s greatest advocate throughout his illness, his siblings. Debbie (Bill Collins) Sullivan, Mark (Dana) Sullivan, Terrie (Bill) Furbeck, Tim Sullivan and Scott (Rose) Sullivan, Brian’s aunt Sandy Rogan, David’s nieces, Courtney Furbeck, Melissa (Carl) Kovatchick and her daughter Elena, his nephews, John Sullivan, Mark Joseph Sullivan and Timmy Sullivan, many cousins and close friends. He was predeceased by his Father, Robert, and his nieces Kristy Furbeck and Kathleen Sullivan.
We will all miss David’s quick wit, generous and caring nature, his genuine smile and the mischievous twinkle in his eye.
David’s family would like to thank the staff on 4 McCauley, the ICU and Hospice at St Peter’s hospital for their wonderful care, respect and kind words. They would also like to thank Rev. John Medwid, David and Brian’s pastor for his support, his time and generosity throughout David’s illness.
