PGWP Jerry Sullivan Passes Away at 72

It is with great sadness we must report the passing of Past Grand Worthy President Jerry Sullivan. 

Jerry was a proud and dedicated Eagle who joined the organization as a charter member of Fredericksburg, Va., Aerie #4123 in 1985, where he often served as Santa Claus for the annual Children’s Christmas Party. He continued to serve the Fredericksburg Eagles in various capacities throughout his time as an Eagle and maintained dual memberships at Spotsylvania #4391, Williamsburg #4548, Sunnyslope #2957 and Culpeper #4551. 

In the 90’s, Jerry rose through various local and state level chairs before being installed as the Virginia State Worthy President for the 2002-03 term. 

At the 2007 International Convention in Spokane, Wash., he first became a Grand Aerie Officer, holding the position of Grand Conductor. He progressed through the Grand Aerie for several years before finally reaching the pinnacle of the F.O.E., serving as Grand Worthy President for the 2016-17 term.

At the time of his passing, Jerry was serving as the Chairman of Eagle Village, a living community for senior members of the F.O.E., in Bradenton, Fla. 

He was a dedicated ritualist who served on the Grand Aerie Ritual Team during his time as a Grand Officer and promoted the importance of the Ritual during his Eagles travels. His hobbies included playing cards and trying to better his golf game. 

Jerry will be sorely missed and our thoughts and prayers are with his loving wife, Maxine, and their family. 

Information regarding arrangements and cards/flowers for the family will be made available in the coming days through the Grand Aerie Facebook page and
