Hudson – Kenneth Martin Sullivan, a lifelong resident of Hudson, passed away peacefully at his home Monday, Sept. 9, 2013 after a three-year battle with cancer. Kenny was 46 years old and a graduate of Hudson Catholic High School and Wentworth Institute. He was a hardware design engineer for EMC Corporation for 19 years.
Kenny leaves behind his beloved wife Deborah and his three children, Sydney, Molly, and Kenneth. He is survived by his parents, Daniel and Pauline Sullivan of Hudson, and his siblings and their families, Maura and her husband James Borah of Mansfield, Daniel and his wife Lynn of Hopkinton, Christopher and his wife Denise of Hopkinton, and David and his wife Lisa of Gloucester, as well as his 10 nieces and nephews.
Kenny touched so many lives in his 46 years and will be remembered for many things. He made everyone around him laugh and was never at a loss for a quick witted joke. He had a passion for life whether it was mountain biking, riding his motorcycle, baseball, or music, and was always on call as the family handy-man. But, he was most passionate about spending time with his family and friends. His warm heart and great nature made his home in Hudson a constant gathering place for family and friends throughout his life. Kenny will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
