Teddy "Ted" T Sullivan
September 2, 1931 - June 27, 2024

Place of Birth: Fairview, Montana
Residence: Sidney, MT formerly of Fairview, MT
Age: 92

Teddy Thomas Sullivan was born September 2, 1931, in Fairview, MT to Thomas and Frances (Kanarr) Sullivan. He married June Ione Ketterling on April 10, 1952, in Sidney, MT. Ted and June spent 63 years together in Fairview, MT until June’s passing in 2016. They enjoyed sitting in front of their house, talking to passersby, and making sure the squirrels had enough to eat.

While Ted’s formal education ended with the eighth grade, he did receive his GED and was self-educated through countless hours spent in the Sidney Public Library, as well as trial and error. He was quite knowledgeable on many subjects and was always willing to share that knowledge with others whether it was history, investing, agate hunting, set-line fishing, coin collecting, gardening, or even panning for gold, which Ted learned how to do later in life. Ted valued education, both formal and informal.

Ted was extremely proud of his many years serving in the Montana National Guard, as well as with the Fairview Volunteer Fire Department. He was also a U.S Postal Carrier for over 30 years on the longest star route in Montana. He enjoyed playing the harmonica, working out, and spending time with family on the holidays where he always laid claim to the turkey neck (not that anyone put up a fight). His nieces and nephews enjoyed packing a lunch and tagging along on his mail route - they even got to put the mail in the mailboxes once in a while.

Teddy Thomas Sullivan died on Thursday, June 27, 2024, at Sidney Extended Care. He is preceded in death by his parents, Thomas and Frances, his wife June, and six half brothers and sisters: Frank, Lou, Rose, Pearl, Elizabeth, and Helen. Ted is survived by his brother, Floyd (Linda) Sullivan of Fairview, MT and numerous nieces and nephews.

I’m so sorry to hear about Teddy’s passing. He was quite the guy. I loved teasing him about playing the poker machines, that if he wanted to throw money away to throw it towards me. We’d both laugh. Just know my prayers and thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

I worked along side Teddy T for 9 years until he retired from the post office. He was a funny, intelligent and what a character! We all enjoyed his wit and he'll be certainly missed. He often doled out advise or kidded me about my plight in the world of man's work. But, we got along wonderfully. He was that kind man that everyone should know

Ted was our mailman for many years. You could set your watch by him, as he was always on time. If we had a package, he would swing up to the house and quickly bring it to the door so it didn't sit out on the road. He and June were special folks and his memory will continue on. Sincere condolences to his family.

I enjoyed visiting with Teddy whenever he stopped by the Library, and helping him find books. He was a very kind man, and will be missed!

Ted was married to my mom's cousin June. We always enjoyed visits with them at the family gatherings. It seems like Ted was always smiling and telling great stories.
