Obituary for Albert "Al" Sullivan

Albert "Al" Sullivan, age 78, longtime resident of Blair, Oklahoma, passed away Sunday, October 3, 2021 at the Mangum Skilled Nursing Center in Mangum, OK.

Albert was born on October 23, 1942 to Homer and Nellie (Marble) Sullivan in Hollis, OK. In 1944, they moved to the Friendship community where he attended school until 1952. With the passing of his father, his mother moved him and his siblings to Blair, where he finished his education in 1960.

Albert and Marilyn (Pankhurst) Sullivan were united in marriage on February 6, 1993 in Blair, OK. The marriage spanned 28 years until his passing. Al started working at a very early age to help his mother and siblings. He worked at grocery stores in Blair and delivered newspapers. After graduating, he went to work at South Main United in Altus, OK, then moved to Bunker Hill United. After moving to Enid, OK, he worked for Southgate United.

In 1969, he moved back to the Friendship area and started working for the Keebler Cookies and Cracker Company, retiring after 32 years.
After retiring from Keebler, he worked for the Oklahoma Boll Weevil Eradication Organization, bought a self-employed vending route, and helped his wife at her flower shop delivering flowers until 2011 when his health prevented him from continuing.

Al was a member of the First Baptist Church in Blair, where he served on several committees. He was also a Blair city councilman. Al had several hobbies including riding motorcycles, farming, attending trail rides, spending time with family and friends, especially, going to Melvin Tutten's to catch up on all the gossip!
