I am sad to report that Past Grand Knight Timothy J. Sullivan died on August 23, 2018 at home. Tim was an Honorary Life member of our Council with 46 years of service, and active in the Lawrence P. Gherty Assembly of the Fourth Degree for 35 years. Tim served our Council as Grand Knight from 1977-78. Tim and Mary worked tirelessly on many of our Council's activities over the years. Their legacy was the Jr. High Basketball Tournament, which they started and chaired successfully for many of the 30 years it was held, raising thousands of dollars for St. Mary School. Please keep Tim and the Sullivan family in your prayers.
