Honoring Robert ‘Sully’ Sullivan

Robert “Sully” Sullivan mends his gear on A float in Cordova’s north harbor in preparation of the next commercial gillnet opener. Photo captured in the spring of 2005. “In 2005 I lived at the Reluctant Hotel for three months. My window looked directly out on Sully’s boat and I would often see him out there working away on his net, rain or shine. I took a number of photos of him as he seemed to be an interesting fisherman, always busy.”Photo by David Little/for The Cordova Times

A celebration of life will be held sometime this summer when the fish are running and the fisher folk are home.
