Christopher J. O’Sullivan (1936-1965) was born and raised in Astoria, not far from this triangular plaza at Astoria Boulevard, 25th Avenue, and 88th Street. He attended Immaculate Conception School in Astoria, graduated from Xavier High School in Manhattan in 1954, and enrolled in the ROTC program at Fordham University. After receiving his B.A. in 1958, O’Sullivan was commissioned a second lieutenant and enlisted in a special service course to become an airborne ranger. He took a break from his rigorous training to marry his hometown sweetheart, Eleanor Scott, and they had two sons, Michael and Stevie.
