Matthew (Matti) Sullivan

February 21, 1981 – November 27, 2021
We sadly wish to inform those who are unaware that our son Matthew (Matti) Sullivan (born February 21, 1981) passed away on November 27, 2021 due to an opioid overdose. Matti was a loving, gentle soul who loved his family, relatives and friends and they loved him and mourn him. He leaves behind his father Nick Sullivan, mother Lee Bjarnason, sister Amanda, niece Chai and nephew Bjorn. He loved dogs, nature, mushrooming and making beautiful blown glass. We all loved him so much and Matti tried to beat the addiction and was on his way to recovery.
A celebration of life will be held on Quadra Island on July 9 at the Lighthouse at 2:00 with a gathering at the Quadra Legion at 5:00 for song and reminisces. Please contact us or other family members for more information.
Please support the Warming Centre and those advocating for safe access to clean drugs and accessible rehabilitation services, as well as caring about those who are fighting addictions.
