Bloomberg reports that Sullivan, of Darien, Connecticut, was among three passengers in a helicopter that went down in a wooded area in Coolbaugh Township about 8 p.m. on October 9th, the Monroe County coroner’s office said Wednesday in a statement. The pilot, William Ellsworth, 52, of Califon, New Jersey, also died, while passenger Stephen Barral of Bernardsville, New Jersey, a fraternity brother of Sullivan’s, survived.
Sullivan started the leveraged-loan firm with John Fraser in 2005 after leaving Deutsche Bank AG (DBK), where he was a Managing Director in high-yield sales. He is survived by his wife, Callie, and their children, Jessie, 18, Lila, 17, and Tiger, 15, said Richard Lombard, his father-in-law.
'He was just a wonderful guy', Lombard said in a telephone interview. 'Full of spirit. An action person'.
