Charles Pope Sullivan, the third of four children, was born Aug. 20, 1925, in Hardeman County, son of the late Carl and Anna Sullivan. In 1956, he was elected Mayor of Weatherford.

Charles also served as president of Kiwanis Club, was active with the committee on aging, Meals On Wheels, and little league baseball and was a member and head deacon of Eureka Baptist Church. When he was younger, he assisted his parents in the operation of the Sullivan Grocery Store that was located on South Main Street.
