Family and Friends Remember Alex Sullivan's Life
A Rochester family is mourning the loss of Alex Sullivan, 27, who was killed in the mass shooting at a Colorado movie theater.
His father is now speaking out about forgetting the shooter and remembering the good.
"We're already moving into celebration mode for Alex. No one will forget him. We've already forgot who took care of this . Then we went home, got the Jamesons out, got a cigar, Van Morrison on, and began to celebrate our son," said Alex's Father, Tom Sullivan.
Alex grew up in Colorado, but his parents are Rochester natives and most of his extended family, including twenty cousins still in the Rochester area.
The family of Alex searched the town of Aurora for their missing loved one nearly 20 hours before he was confirmed among the dead.
Not only was Sullivan killed on his 27th birthday, but he was set to celebrate his one year anniversary with his wife Cassie the following week.
