Martin Joseph Sullivan
Martin grew up in New Londen Connecticut. He attended Jennings school there. As he grew up, he
wanted to be a Doctor. He had a hobby of model airplanes may have led to his becoming a pilot. While in college, Marty,
as he was nicknamed, joined the Spanish and Italian Clubs among other activities. The comment in his yearbook says: "Marty's
slight Connecticut accent only adds to the charm of his pleasant grin. Many a young ladies heart has done a somesault when his blue
eyes flashed her way."
He left behind his wife, Beryl Dean Sullivan in La Jolla, California and his brother, Francis T.
Sullivan, Lawrence Massachusetts. His wife, the daughter to the late George and Ethel (Wood) Dean, was raised and educated in
Lawrence Massachusetts and was a graduate of Westport High School, Class of 1953. She furthered her education at Boston
University and earned a degree in Music Education.
