Horace Sullivan

June 27, 1940 — August 7, 2021

Goodlettsville

Horace Edward Sullivan, age 81 of Goodlettsville, passed peacefully at home Saturday, August 7, 2021, surrounded by his adoring family. He was the epitome of a loving family man, dedicated to his wife, and incredibly proud of his children and grandchildren. You could always count on his two granddaughters to put a sparkle in his eyes. Horace held onto life until the day of his 40th wedding anniversary with his true love, though he was under in-home hospice care in the last weeks of his life. He was a man who genuinely lived out his faith, a generous man, always looking for opportunities to lend a hand and eager to go the extra mile. Horace loved making people laugh, telling jokes, and pulling pranks. He was a man of faith, character, and integrity; a man described even in his youth as possessing wisdom beyond his years. Horace loved his friends and family unconditionally and unreservedly. He loved working with young people, especially his time as a Little League coach. Horace enjoyed traveling, camping, fishing, Westerns, and UT football.

Horace is survived by his devoted wife of 40 years, Ginny Blincoe Sullivan; his son, Terry Sullivan of Hermitage; his daughter, Becky (David) Kimbrough of Goodlettsville; his granddaughters Molly and Katie Kimbrough; his sister, Tish (Jack) Stone of Bellevue; his brother, Johnson (Ann) Sullivan of Franklin; his sister, Rita (Wilson) Sullivan of Fairview; and his sister, Rene (T.J.) Kirby of Pegram.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Esther and Horace Sullivan of Fairview; his son, Mike Sullivan of Ashland City; and his sister, Elizabeth White of Nashville. Horace was Director of Operations and Human Resources for C.B. Ragland for many years. Later he served as Regional Director for Capital American Life Insurance Company. Horace was a lifelong member of the Church of Christ, serving as a deacon and a Sunday school teacher.
