It is with great sadness we have to report that the Mystics have lost another family member. John, Mort, and Richie’s older brother Dan passed away, surrounded by his family, on January 11th, after a long battle with cancer.
Dan was a fiercely loyal Mystic supporter for over 40 years, especially for his brothers, nephews, and all the Cambridge boys that wore blue. Dan also played a match or two for the Mystics in Braintree in the early 80s, making the Sullivan men the only four brother Mystic family to have taken the pitch for the club.
Dan will truly be remembered as a gentle giant who’s primary purpose, in a life well lived, was to help others. Dan loved nothing more than doing favors and kind gestures, small and large, for family, friends, acquaintances, or strangers. He never expected or wanted anything in return. He simply enjoyed performing thoughtful deeds.
He was really one of a kind and will be dearly missed by his family, friends, and all who knew him.
Visitation – Thursday, January 16th from 4-8pm at Brown & Hickey Funeral Home in Belmont.
Funeral Service – Friday, January 17th at 11am at Brown & Hickey Funeral Home in Belmont.
