Michael E. Sullivan



  On Wednesday, July 22nd., Michael E Sullivan, beloved friend, and confidant to all who knew him, passed away at 46, in his home in Evergreen, Colorado.

  Mike was born, November 16th. 1973, in Haverhill Massachusetts to Joy Lynn Mimms and Michael E. Sullivan Sr. He graduated Whittier Vo Tech Highschool and furthered his education at Northern Essex Community College. Mike was a master technician of music theory and a master in the art of geometry in his carpentry. He went on to co-found Mountain Family Tree Service and received the Tree Care Industry Associations, Certified Tree Care Safety Professional, certification, ISA, Certified Arborist Certification, and his Class A CDL License.

  Mike had an innate ability for making people laugh and smile and feel better about themselves. He loved Music and Comedy to his core. His passion and ability in playing heavy metal music was only matched by his passion for the blues later. From building cigar box guitars for all the kids in town, customized guitar pics and slides, to teaching anyone that wanted to learn how to play, he was wholehearted, patient, and sincere.  Choosing to start a business in a field that he loved, climbing trees, he was not simply good at it, he was a Beast! He loved it. Mike will forever be remembered for his incredible wit, infectious smile, his kind spirit, and his many unbelievable talents.

  Mike was preceded in death by his younger brother, Tony Suber, Mother, Joy, Grandparents, Jane and Daniel Forte.

  Mike is survived by his brothers Jarred Sullivan, and Christopher and Steven Lowe as well as several, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
