Obituary for Mark D. Sullivan, III

Mark D. Sullivan, III, age 74, of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, passed away on Sunday, March 19, 2017, at his home surrounded by his family. Born September 25, 1942 in Camden, South Carolina, he was the son of the late Mark D. Sullivan, Jr. and the late Blanche Culvern Sullivan, and was predeceased by one brother, Nelson. Mr. Sullivan proudly served his country as a member of the U.S. Army and was stationed in Germany for two years. He earned his undergraduate degree from Presbyterian College, his Juris Doctor degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law, and his Master of Laws degree from New York University. Mr. Sullivan returned to South Carolina where he practiced law with the Haynsworth Law Firm in Greenville for 10 years. Following that, he practiced law in New York and again returned to Greenville to work with the late Richard Foster. As a licensed attorney for 46 years, he consistently earned the highest “AV Preeminent” rating from Martindale Hubbell.

Mr. Sullivan had a love for words, was an avid reader, and had friends all over the world. He was a member of the New York Bar and the South Carolina Bar, and was a lifetime member of the New York Athletic Club. Mr. Sullivan is survived by the love of his life, Beverly Klyce; her sister, Dr. Danna Brissie and her husband Arthur of Hilton Head Island; a nephew, Ryan New of New York; a godchild, Danielle Skerret of Australia, and ten cousins.

Following Mr. Sullivan’s wishes, there will not be a formal service. Soprano Opera Singer, Myra Cordell from Manhattan will give a concert in South Carolina in Mr. Sullivan’s memory at a later date that will be announced.

Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of the Lowcountry, 7 Plantation Park Drive, Bluffton, South Carolina 29910.
