It is with heavy hearts we share news of the passing of George Vincent Sullivan, Jr., born October 4, 1946.

George Sullivan, 74, passed away Tuesday, March 16, 2021, at Jersey Shore University Medical Center surrounded by the love of his family. Formerly of Jersey City and Bayonne, George spent the last 25 years as a resident of Bradley Beach living his dream on the Jersey Shore.

Following graduation from Dickinson High School in Jersey City, George enlisted in the Marines and served in Vietnam. After his service, he took great pride in his work with the Hudson County Police Department before moving to the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office, where as a Detective Lieutenant, he led the Narcotics Strike Force, the Gambling squad, the Homicide Unit and was assigned to the Special Investigations Unit. A founding member of the Shillelagh Pipe and Drums of the Jersey Shore, George was the Drum Sergeant for many of those 23 years. He marched in countless parades throughout New Jersey,
Savannah, GA and in Ireland. George enjoyed spending time with his lifelong friends in the Friendly Sons of Shillelagh,in Belmar. After his final retirement, he enjoyed spending his time at the Shark River Beach and Yacht Club where his favorite pastime was cruising on a sunny day down to the Manasquan inlet with his wife, Sharon. They both agreed, it was a perfect day! In New Jersey and Florida he loved to pass the time with friends playing rounds of golf. A favorite sight for friends and family alike was George arriving, convertible top down. Sharing his Irish Heritage was a source of great joy. Generous and the life of the party, George thoroughly enjoyed entertaining his caring friends and adoring family. Extremely social, he had an open door, and an open fridge, porch policy complimented by his iPod featuring 30 hours of Irish music.

George is survived by his loving wife of fifteen years, Sharon Harrington. He was predeceased by his parents Maryann (nee Finn) and George V. Sullivan Sr., his sister Loretta Sullivan, and his grandson Will DeGregorio, who were all ready to welcome him. A loving father to his four children, daughter Katherine and her husband Vincent DeGregorio, son George V. Sullivan III and wife Bridget, daughter Shannon and husband Jim Pullaro, son Sean Sullivan and fiance Kim Hill. A devoted Pop-pop to his 9 grandchildren: Joseph and wife Kate Major, Courtney Major, Mackenzie and Rylee Sullivan, Daniel and Matthew Pullaro, Liam and Emily Sullivan. He is also survived by his sister, Patricia Duttlinger (nee Sullivan) and her family. George had an extended network of nieces and nephews and a loving Harrington clan.

George Sullivan moved to Bradley Beach over 25 years ago and quickly became a part of our family as our neighbor and friend. We have shared so many family milestones as the years have passed and our families have grown. He was a generous and caring man who was always willing to lend a helping hand or an ear to support those around him. We will miss our over the fence conversations, his Irish music, and watching him at his grill, cooking and entertaining his many family and friends. Time has gone by too fast as summers have come and gone. George consistently showed us his loving nature and his passion for life. His was a life well lived. We will miss him. We extend our condolences and love to the family and friends. -- Alfred Martinez, Lorraine Messier, Alanna and Brian Ruse.

I had the pleasure of meeting George 15 years ago when he married my cousin Sharon. It was a magical day! He was kind,warm hearted, generous and a lot of fun. Went down to their place in Venice and had a wonderful time. George was a Hoot to be around. My condolences to the Sullivan Family and the Harrington Family. And most of all George- Thank you for giving Sharon your Love and making her happy. You will be missed but your memories will always live in our heart.💚💚💚 RIP. All our Love Deidre and Alan ❤❤
