SULLIVAN, Tex P. - Died suddenly but peacefully at the age of 72 on Wednesday November 8th at Orillia Soldiers' Memorial Hospital. He is survived by his wife Susan of 48 years, daughter Samantha, son-in-law Phillip Sauer and grandsons Tobin and Mason of Barrie. He was predeceased by his parents Victor (2008) and Alma Sullivan (1972). He will be sadly missed by his sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law and their families.

Upon retirement, he enjoyed part-time work at Home Depot then Habitat for Humanity. Tex loved the finer things in life from his boating days to his beloved yellow Porsche Boxster to making wooden toys for his grandsons. A celebration of life will be held on Sunday November 26th 1 - 4 pm at Best Western Mariposa Inn and Conference Centre, 400 Memorial Dr., Orillia. Come as you are with joyous memories of Tex. In lieu of flowers, donations to Orillia Soldiers' Memorial Hospital (OSMH) Foundation or a charity of your choosing in Tex's name would be greatly appreciated.

I was saddened to read of Tex's passing.

We fondly remember the auto race at Mossport in the summer of 1965.
