Earl sully sullivan
As a non-profit organization, Sully’s Recreation & Athletic Centre expect to solicit donations from corporations and individuals to provide necessary funding for this valuable vehicle to assist youth who may be encountering difficult times. The centre will operate with the values of the man whose namesake it carries.
Earl O’Sullivan (later changed to Sullivan) was born on November 16, 1914, in Mimico. His father, an Irishman, had a love for boxing. There were always boxing gloves around the O’Sullivan household, and Earl and his three brothers would often don the gloves and pretend to be champion boxers. In Grade 9, Sully left school and held numerous jobs over the next 15 years; driving a milk wagon, running a restaurant, operating a moving company, managing a fleet of cabs.
"Boxing was taking seriously, but it was now a vehicle for helping youth get on the right track."
"He was well respected in the community for his humanitarian deed, and often trouble-prone kids got a second chance in life because of Sully."
