John Kearney O'Sullivan Obituary

from Denver County, Colorado, United States


Friend, skier, dancer, storyteller

John O’Sullivan, an avid skier, elegant dancer and friendly storyteller died peacefully at Brookshire House on August, 4th in Denver at the age of 85.

John is survived by his friends and extended family including Mary Ann (Mibby) Connolly in Denver,  brother in laws Stuart Dow in Detroit and Hal Selinger in West Virginia. John is also survived by nieces and nephews Sarah Dow Reimers (John), Laura Dow Coon (Zachary), John Keelan (Debby), Dan Keelan (Peggy), Molly Keelan, Tim Keelan (Linda), Mary Farchione (Joe), Sheila Martinson (Scott), Tim O’Sullivan, Dan O’Sullivan, Sheila Hoyer (Brian), and Michael Hoyer. 

John was predeceased by his father Federal Judge Clifford O'Sullivan and his mother Theresa O'Sullivan, his brothers Patrick and Thomas O'Sullivan, his sisters Sheila Keelan, Therese Dow, and Mary Selinger, his sister-in-laws Maureen O’Sullivan, and brother-in-law Jack Keelan. 

John’s life and passing is a testament to the kindness of everyday people. This includes Mary Ann (Mibby) Connelly. John and Mibby were married in ‘71 and though separated by ’76 remained loyal friends. For the next 44 years, including the day John passed – Mibby entered his life and room with a smile and joy that John always appreciated. John also received amazing kindness from his many caregivers around the Denver area. From Brookshire House, Brookdale Pinehurst Park and local hospitals John was blessed by the gentle care and encouragement of people like Brook, Donna, Beatrice, Sarah, Courtney, Rosalie and many more. John himself was kind to many on his journey. Whether a friend from school, skiing buddies, or a lifetime companion – John was quick with a helping hand, a gentle hug and always a good story or joke. 

A memorial service will be held at St Joseph Church in Port Huron, MI and John will be laid to rest beside family at Mt Hope Catholic Cemetery, also in Port Huron. Date and time to be determined.
