Arthur Michael Sullivan Jr. died peacefully at home on Feb. 1 in Palm Beach, Florida. He was 77.

Graduating from St. Anselm’s College and the American University School of Law, he enjoyed a brief government career as an attorney with the Small Business Administration in Washington, D.C., before entering the world of real estate in Georgetown. He was the principal at Michael Sullivan, Inc., and moved to Washington Fine Properties later in his career.

He was happily married for 27 years to Beverly Bissell Sullivan, who predeceased him in 1999. They made their homes in Georgetown, Newport, Key West and Palm Beach, where they supported local organizations working for the betterment of their communities.

Michael waged a long and courageous battle against Parkinson’s disease.

He is survived by his cousins, Jean E. Sullivan of Newport, Rhode Island, and Paul J. Sullivan of Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts. He was the son of Margaret Salisbury Sullivan and Arthur Michael Sullivan Sr. of Providence, Rhode Island. His brother, Peter F. Sullivan, also of Providence, predeceased him in 2009.

His last words were: “We won!” Michael, as he was known to all, went out a winner.

He will be laid to rest beside his wife in Delaplane, Virginia, on Feb. 18 at a private funeral. Memorial services, to be announced, will be in Palm Beach, Georgetown and Newport.

    I am 65 years old, I was diagnosed of Parkinson’s disease at the age of 59. I had severe calf pain, muscle pain, slurred speech, frequent falls, loss of balance, difficulty getting up from sitting position. i was on Carbidopa and Pramipexole for two years, as the disease progressed my symptoms worsened, with my neurologist guidance i started on natural PARKINSON’S DISEASE TREATMENT from Rich Herbal garden (ww w. richherbalgardens. c o m). The treatment worked very effectively for my Parkinson’s, most of my severe symptoms simply vanished within the first 3 months on the treatment, i feel better now than I have felt in years and i can feel my strength again. My neurologist was very open when looking at alternative medicines and procedures, this alternative Parkinson’s disease treatment is indeed a breakthrough.

    Micheal and Beverly were dear friends in Key West. Sadly we lost touch with each other. This is sad news for me.

    My husband was diagnosed of Parkinsons disease 2 years ago, when he was 59. He had a stooped posture, tremors, right arm does not move and also a pulsating feeling in his body. He was placed on Senemet for 8 months and then Siferol was introduced and replaced the Senemet, during this time span he was also diagnosed with dementia. He started having hallucinations, lost touch with. Suspecting it was the medication I took him off the Siferol (with the doctor’s knowledge)  him on PD natural herbal formula we ordered from TREE OF LIFE HEALTH CLINIC, his symptoms totally declined over a 3 weeks use of the TREE OF LIFE HEALTH Parkinson’s disease natural herbal formula. He is now  almost 61 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed!  (w w w. treeoflifeherbalclinic .com)

    Michael changed my entire life. Twice. Found me
    The perfect Georgetown townhouse. When I balked he sent me back to look again on a rainy night at the sweeping stair case. The fireplaces. I bought it and treasured it. With the second baby due any minute he showed me the house of my dreams. Could
    Not afford the $425k. He said yes you can. 41 years and four kids later we are still here and praise Michael every night as we
    Watch the sunset. God bless and thank you!!!!!
