A lifelong Hudson Valley resident who traveled around the world for his job has died at the age of 44.
Dutchess County resident Jeffrey Sullivan died suddenly at home on Friday, April 29, according to his obituary.
Sullivan grew up in Poughkeepsie and eventually moved to Hopewell Junction.
He attended Holy Trinity School in Poughkeepsie and Canterbury School in New Milford, and he later graduated from Marist College, his obituary said.
"Jeff was employed as the Head of US Supply Chain for Unilever International in Englewood Cliffs, NJ where he was a dedicated employee for over 11 years and traveled for work to places such as Thailand, Brazil, Mexico, and Singapore," his obituary reads.
He is remembered as an avid sports fan, who also had a love of playing golf and traveling.
"Most of all, Jeff loved spending time with his family and friends," his obituary said. "He was a loving husband, and an amazing and devoted dad. His children meant the world to him. He spent countless hours taking them to basketball, soccer, baseball, karate, and dance."
Sullivan is survived by his wife, Melissa, his children, Alexander John, Olivia Rose, and Nicholas Paul, his parents, Paul and Arian, and his siblings and their spouses, Patrick and Trudi, and Kelly and Ryan.
