Ronald Scott Sullivan

September 9, 1970 — October 4, 2020

Ronald “Scott” Sullivan, 50, passed away peacefully with family and friends near him on October 4, 2020. Like everything Scott did, he fought hard and defied the odds. Less than two months ago, Scott was told that he had an aggressive untreatable form of cancer and had days to only a couple of weeks to live. Anyone that has ever competed with Sully on a sports field knows that he does not care about odds or how tough the battle will be. He is and was always positive and fought hard to battle this and every other obstacle in front of him. Scott was born in Somerset on September 9, 1970, to Ronnie Sullivan and Linda Kinley Sullivan. He is survived by his parents, sisters Angela Sullivan Dodd and Kimberly Sullivan, nieces Victoria Garner, Kayla York and Gracie York, and the focus of his life, his son Cade Smith Sullivan. Scott also leaves the love of his life Kristi Harrison, numerous best friends, colleagues, and clients in the healthcare industry. Sully graduated from Somerset High School in 1988, but all local high schools claim him as one of their own. After playing and dominating on nearly every local athletic field as a youngster, he was a two-sport star at Somerset High before playing football at Georgetown College. Scott went on to receive degrees from Somerset Community College, his Bachelor of Science in Biology and Teaching Certification, a Masters of Education, Certificate of Secondary School Counseling, and Rank I Second Masters Degree in Administration from Eastern Kentucky University. As an athlete Sully was the best teammate anyone could hope to play with; as a friend, he was loyal, giving, and would do anything he could to help or support a friend; as a teacher and football coach at Pulaski County and Southwestern High Schools, Coach Sully inspired many the students and future leaders of our wonderful community. Scott went on to work in the healthcare industry as a Diabetes Care Specialist for Novo Nordisk. Over his twenty-plus years in the healthcare industry, Scott won numerous awards for sales and service. His success was a testament to his love for his work, his colleagues, and his clients. Sully had an impact and left a lifelong impression on everyone he met. From his finger snaps, his “Hey Baaybie” phrases and attitude, and beautiful smile - you could not keep from loving the guy within minutes of meeting him. Scott was everyone’s best friend and everyone thought that they were his best friend. His passing leaves a void for many people. Scott is at peace and is with our Lord. As Sully often said, “I am sitting on G and waiting on O, Let’s Go!" In lieu of flowers the family requests expressions of sympathy take the form of contributions to the Cade Sullivan Scholarship Fund.
