Bob was one of my closest friends at City High and later at the University of Tennessee, where we both were involved with the Student Government Association. I remember Bob being one of the first on the floor when the dancing started, and I remember the look on our date's faces when we'd go up to the dam, not for submarine races, but to hear John Ward call the UT basketball games.

Though we parted ways when we graduated, I'll always remember the quick smile and Bob's infectious laugh.

Bob was a great person that was passionate about life and his friends. He left us way too soon, but I will always remember him as a true friend at City. I lost contact with him after we graduated, and was greatly saddened when he lost his battle with cancer. He was a person that had high standards and stood up for his beliefs. I can see him as a leader in today's world. His children should be proud of the fine man that he was.

When we were in high school we did not know that we would only have a handfull of truely good friends. These are friends that come at a moments notice, who will call from Italy or Germany or home or will answer your call. Sometimes to talk, sometimes to discuss UT or Auburn, or the Army(he never let me forget that he made Captain 4 months before me) which bound us as much as City. Few people remember that I was Bob's date Sr Night, or that we were threatened with expulsion by Coach Phifer for our speeches that night.Whether Key Club, City, UT or family, we were friends. Roger Smith and I were with Bob the night he passed (1980, I think) and he was the same Bob we all knew and loved. City High never had a more devoted and dedicated alum. Bob was special and Bob was my best friend.

Bob was the type of person you wanted to be... Bob and I became friends at Brainerd Junior High.  He took me to my first CHS basketball game while we were still at BJH.  He loved City High School before we even got there.  Shelley Weaver was Miss CHS in 1967.  However, if there had ever been a Mr. CHS it would have been Bob Sullivan.  Bob left a great legacy for Joan and their boys.  Proud to have been Bob's friend.  CL
