Visitation will be from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, February 25, 2020 at Leonard Funeral Home & Crematory, 2595 Rockdale Road.

Sully was born April 23, 1943 to Dorrance M. Sullivan and Dorothy J. Pins in Dubuque, Iowa. He attended Saint Patrick’s Grade School, Loras Academy, and graduated from Wahlert High School in 1961. He enlisted in the Air Force and after school was stationed in Minot AFB North Dakota where he worked as a mechanic on nuclear missiles and on the flight line on the air base from 1962-1966. He was discharged as a Staff Sargent with two Presidential Unit Citations. On January 6, 1967, Sully joined the Dubuque Fire Department and retired with the rank of Captain after 39 years of service. He served as a paramedic and held positions on several specialty teams. He was a professional skier with the National Ski Patrol and skied in that position for 28 years at Sundown Ski Area in Dubuque. Sully was also an avid motorcyclist from his youth until his death. Anyone who knew Sully, knows he was larger than life. He did everything fast and wild and unique, just how he exited this world. He is survived by four daughters, Christina (Bret) Carlson of Colorado Springs, Colorado; Jennifer (Jared) Behnke of Loveland, Colorado; Sarah Sullivan and granddaughter Edie of Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and Kathleen Sullivan of Colorado Springs, Colorado. The family extends their gratitude to the ICU staff at MercyOne Dubuque Medical Center especially to Dr. Healey and nurse Travis. To send flowers to Daniel’s family, please visit our floral section.
