Brian Francis Xavier Sullivan, 62 of Medfield, went to Heaven on November 7th, 2020, surrounded by his loving family at home, after a fearless fight with cancer.
He was born in Wellesley Hills, MA, on May 4th, 1958. Brian graduated from Eastern Kentucky University and received his MBA from Assumption College. He married Sheila Ferreira Sullivan on November 9, 1985 at the Emmanuel College Chapel, Boston.
Brian was a passionate fisherman and self-proclaimed “bass master.” He was also the consummate Boston sports enthusiast; no deficit was insurmountable. Brian was the Principal Solutions Engineer at Deltek, where he loved working tirelessly to support clients all over the world. However, his greatest accomplishment in life was raising his four children, whom he adored unconditionally.
Brian is preceded in death by his parents, Brian Sullivan and Margaret Walsh Sullivan of Corbin, KY.
Brian is lovingly remembered by his wife of 35 years, Sheila, and their four children, Kevin, James, Margaret and Quinn, and his two sisters, Janet Sullivan Dapkiewicz and her husband Stephen of Bracey, VA, and Jennifer Sullivan of Beacon Falls, CT. He is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, wonderful friends and neighbors.
Services will be held at a later date in the Spring.
In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to VNA Hospice & Palliative Care, 199 Rosewood Drive, Suite 180, Danvers, MA 01923.

Brian was a valued colleague that brought so much energy and passion to the work environment! Our clients valued Brian as a trusted business partner that could always be counted on for sage advice and a laugh or two. Brian was always there for his clients and co-workers; he was a very talented person and universally respected and admired. Sully will be missed! Our condolences to the Sullivan Family. You are in our collective thoughts and prayers,
Sean and Jillian OConnell (Deltek)

Sheila, Quinnie and family,

I just this evening heard this very sad news. I could not believe it. I had no idea Brian was sick.
I played basketball with Brian and I felt like we always hit it off. Such a great, great guy. I know he worked so hard traveling all over the globe. But above all I know how much he loved his family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Sullivan family at this most difficult time. May you be comforted by warm memories of a life well lived.
God Bless.
Neil, Denise, Sean, Matt and Zach Conroy

A broken heart.

How could Brian, a force so powerfully beautiful leave the earth?

Well, it must be, that he was only a visitor on earth and heaven is is home.

And we all know that a part of him is living well in Kevin, James, Margaret and Quinn.

Love you guys.
