DANIEL F. SULLIVAN, of Norwood, Massachusetts, passed away on July 14, 1999, at the age of 74. He is survived by his wife, Joyce, and children Danny, Jerry, Katherine and Barbara, plus five grandchildren.

Dan was a Navy veteran of World War II.

He was a charter member of our 'Cranberry Flywheelers' Club. Our club has lost a fine addition, and he leaves a void that cannot be filled. Dan was one of a kind, always ready to lend a hand to anyone in need.

He was a hard worker and started a landscape business with a short-handled shovel, a rake, and a wheelbarrow. The business has grown and is now operated by his son Danny, assisted by another son, Jerry.

Things I remember about Dan are his good nature--he was often the last one to leave the field at the end of the shows. Then he would put up a front on Mondays so his wife Joyce wouldn't see how tired he was after a weekend show. And also I remember the many breakfasts we had together and the good natured bickering over whose turn it was to pick up the check.

Dan will be sadly missed by his family, our club members and his many friends.
