The people call Tom Sullivan
Personal memory: I remember Tom Sullivan on the morning after, holding a photo of his son and showing it to all the cameras. He was frantic
"His friends called him Sully"
"He was, maybe, every father's dream. As a man, you want a son. And Alex was my son and he was also my best friend."
"We were able to do so much together. There was never anywhere that I went -- when you have a child sometimes, it changes you --- and I can honestly tell you that it didn't change me because I took him everywhere"
"he was empathetic, he was compassionate, he was funny. He was, you know, maybe the life of the party. But if you were having a bad day, things weren't working out with you, he had that sense"
Tom Sullivan is a retired postal worker, AFLCIO board member
Alex was working as bartender, ready for management training
Alex sullivan grew up in Aurora, graduated Grandview
