Our History

Mortuary is still a family owned and operated mortuary with three generations of tradition of compassion, caring and dignity. The Sullivan family feels strongly about their traditions and their family's obligation to continue those traditions by maintaining both the high standards of excellence in service to families and their ability to serve the entire community by always keeping their services affordable.

The Sullivan family gives personal attention and care to each family they serve. This care is given during the most difficult time for any family. They distinguish themselves with their capacity for understanding, their many years of experience, and caring Managing Directors and staff.

Warren H. Sullivan, Sr.

The Sullivan Bros. Mortuary Funeral Home was started in 1948 by Warren H. Sullivan, a 1947 graduate of Gupton Jones School of Mortuary Science in Nashville, TN, wife Julia J. Sullivan and his two brothers. A few years later Warren Sullivan bought his brothers shares and became sole owner.

Sullivan Bros. started in the home of his father Rev. R. B. Sullivan, in the Greentown Section of Greer, SC. At the time Sullivan Bros. offered Funeral Service and Ambulance Service to the Community and surrounding areas. In 1950 Sullivan Bros. was moved to 205 Rose St.

In 1974 Warren H. Sullivan, Sr. felt the need to expand the business to its present location 927 E. Poinsett St. Greer, SC and the name became Sullivan Bros. Mortuary.

In 1990, Sullivan Bros. mourned the loss of its founder Rev. Warren H. Sullivan, Sr. After his passing, son, Warren H. Sullivan Jr., a 1978 graduate of Gupton Jones School of Mortuary Science in Atlanta, GA, became manager, and has managed the business until present.

The Drive Thru Window was designed as an original part of the current location of Sullivan Bros. Mortuary. It was free to any family who requested it, and designed to allow them to have their loved one facing the street. This allowed friends and family a chance to ride by the window and view the deceased without getting out.
