Walter G. Sullivan

Walter G. Sullivan of Marshfield, originally from Mission Hill, passed away peacefully on March 5, 2024. He was 90 years old. 

Born in Boston he was the son of the late Walter and Margaret Sullivan (Flatley). He was a graduate of Mission High Class of 1951 and Boston College Class of 1955. Walter also earned a graduate degree from Northeastern University. Walter and his wife Margaret (Peggy) met as kids playing Monopoly on the back porch. They married young by today’s standards and enjoyed over 60 years of marriage, building a loving legacy of family and friendships over their years spent in Braintree, Falmouth, and Naples, Florida. Walter enjoyed a successful career in banking and then in retirement, put that acumen to good use as a supremely shrewd Bridge player. A single child, he became accustomed to the ever expanding galaxy of family surrounding him and was known for always making room for one more at the table. Walter and Peggy enjoyed international travel into their 80’s and drew immense pride and joy in the growth and personal accomplishments of their children and grandchildren.
