Freddie Mack Sullivan
Freddie Mack Sullivan, 65 of Magee, passed away on November 27, 2021 at Liberty Community Living Center in Liberty, MS.
Freddie was born on March 24, 1956 in Magee, MS, one of fourteen and son of Otis Van, Sr. and Mary Lucille (Sellers) Sullivan. He was raised in Magee on the family farm, growing corn and soybeans, raising hogs and horses, along with all the additional things that come with a farm. Freddie Mack attended Magee schools to the ninth grade when he decided to go to work. He did odd jobs until he got his driver’s license and then drove trucks for a while.
In the mid 1980s, Freddie Mack suffered a heart attack that slowed him down somewhat and he went back to the farm. Another heart attack came in 1995, and this time he had to have bypass surgery. That, coupled with some other medical issues, medically retired him.
He is remembered as an old-fashioned type guy who enjoyed old western movies and the older country music of Hank Williams and others. Freddie enjoyed a good laugh as much as anyone and could watch the Three Stooges all day long.
He loved horses from his childhood, passing his knowledge on to his children and others.
Freddie Mack loved his family, often with a tough love, but it was genuine. He will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by all whose life he touched.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Van and Lucille Sullivan, Sr.; three brothers: Thomas, J.C. and Ricky Sullivan; four sisters: Jeanette and Mary Lou Sullivan, Ann Nell Crenshaw and Dorothy Roberts; one brother-in-law, Jesse Smith, and his grandson, Austin Dixon.
Left to cherish his memories are: his five children: Julie (Sammie) Dixon, Melandy (Frankie) Boykin, Michael Sullivan (Amanda Berry), all of Magee, Kisha Kiesiner of TN and Rebecca (Jason) Little of Mize; his siblings: Van, Jr. (Margaret) Sullivan and Evelyn Smith, both of Mize, Vernon (Pamela) Sullivan of Magee, Jimmy (Vicky) Sullivan of Biloxi, Chris (H.J.) Gaspard and Bobbie McKamy, both of TX. He leaves a legacy of eighteen grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and a host of extended family and friends.
His final wishes were to be cremated, which his family is honoring.
He will be laid to rest with his parents in the Sharon Saratoga Presbyterian Church cemetery. And remember… “Ephesians 4:32 – Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”, and “Colossians 3:13 – Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
Trinity Funeral Services is honored to serve the Sullivan family in their time of need. Please remember them in your thoughts and prayers through this difficult time.
