Our beloved brother, Uncle, Cousin & friend Dennis Rawlings Sullivan, on Dec 12, 2020 peacefully passed away at the age of 78, at the Community Living Center in Centerfield, Utah. The Son of Frank Rawlings Sullivan and Lola Violet Welch.

Dennis was born August 10, 1942 in St George, Utah. His father owned a Construction Company and Dennis loved helping out with whatever he could. Dennis didn't like being called Dennis because of Dennis the menace, so he changed his name to Rawlings because it was also his Dad's name.

His most favorite idols were President Spencer W. Kimball and John Wayne. He had met President Kimball several times. From Clothes and movies he was a cowboy through & through. He loved doing Genealogy and Temple work  (Dennis) Rawlings really liked going to church and singing songs whenever he could. He Loved his brother and sisters. Thomas David Sullivan predeceased him, Janice Ray Walker, Kathie Ellen Bingham (David), Patricia Ann Stanley (Steve) and many Nieces & Nephews, and all his Dogs and Horses.

One night in 1984 coming out of Salt Lake Temple in the dark with no street lights, he was hit by a car and both of his legs were crushed, he never walked again. His life truly was not an easy one. As a Family we are so Happy he is spending Christmas happily walking and talking with so many that loved him.
