Robert Sullivan

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

Robert Quinn Sullivan, 62, of Berryville, Ark., opened his eyes in heaven on May 29, 2016. Robert was founder and sole proprietor of Berryville Electric. He was born in Hartsville, South Carolina, on March 14, 1954.

"I hired Robert as my construction manager when I first moved to town eighteen years ago," said longtime friend Joel Taylor. "We spent five days a week together on the road, in hotels, working all the time. He was humble and a stand-up guy. He is one of the handfuls of friends you can count on your fingers. He never needed anything, he just gave it. He had the ultimate family. And I never heard him cuss."

Robert is survived by his wife, Lynda Sullivan; children Greg Goodwin and wife, Kelly; Tony Goodwin; Celeste Sullivan, and Rainey Sullivan Yeager and husband, Ernie. Robert's grandchildren are Samantha, Nora, Mandi, Maggie, Jacob, Charlie, Kodee, Lukas, Isabella, Tyler, Ernie and Sullivan; great-grandchildren are Audrey, Theodore, Bralan, Bailey and Laila. He is also survived by brothers and sisters Willie Sullivan, Linda Rabon, Tom Sullivan, Ricky Sullivan and Frankie Sullivan, nieces and nephews, extended family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, William Randolph and Bonnie Bell Sullivan; brother Earl Sullivan; sister Sophia Bryson and niece Samantha Sullivan.

A celebration of life will be Thursday, June 2, at 2 p.m. at Soul Purpose Ministries in Green Forest.
