LES SULLY Obituary
LES SULLY W. Leslie Sully Jr., devoted husband, loving father, and prominent attorney, of Henderson, passed away April 3, 2013. During his courageous 10-month battle with pancreatic cancer, he was lovingly cared for by his wife, of 32 years, Cheryl; son, Adam; and daughters, Emily and Rachel. He is also survived by his brothers, Dallas Peltz and Winslow Sully; and fondly remembered by his extended family and friends. He was born Sept. 14, 1949, to parents W. Leslie Sully Sr. and Emily Winslow Sully, in Tuxedo, N.Y. The family later relocated to Cambridge, Md., where Les graduated from high school in 1967. He went on to complete his undergraduate studies in Alabama at the University of Montevallo in 1971. Les earned his JD degree at Cumberland School of Law in 1974, and further achieved a prestigious LL.M. degree in taxation from New York University in 1976. He began his distinguished career clerking for the late Judge Howard Babcock in Las Vegas. Les worked in, and was a founding partner of, several local law firms during his 37 years of practice. For the past 18 years, he was a partner in the law firm of Leavitt, Sully & Rivers. During the course of his career, Les was an advisor to many of southern Nevada's most successful and established entrepreneurs, businesses and families. Apart from his professional life, Les had a wide array of personal interests. He was a life-long fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers, a passionate gardener, and collected expansive libraries of music and literature. Les devoted a considerable amount of time to his community and was instrumental in the construction of St. Thomas More Catholic Church. Those fortunate enough to know Les on a personal level knew that family was his foremost priority. He was the consummate husband and an ideal father. His wife and children were truly the light of his life, and he dedicated himself to their care, protection, and happiness. Always a perfect gentleman and a man of impeccable integrity, Les will be dearly missed but his humor will endure, his example will be emulated, and his memory will be forever cherished. Visitation will be 5-7 p.m., Monday, April 8, at Palm Mortuary, 7600 S. Eastern Ave. Funeral Mass will be at 1 p.m., Tuesday, April 9, at St. Thomas More Catholic Church, 130 N. Pecos Road. Burial will follow at Palm Valley View Memorial Park. Reception details will be provided at the conclusion of services. In lieu of flowers, the family would be pleased with donations to Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada, 8990 Spanish Ridge Ave., Suite 100, Las Vegas, NV 89148 www.candlelightersnv.org
