William Matheus Sullivan is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery (Bronx, New York) with his partner, interior decorator Aaron "Arcie" Lubetkin (August 27, 1887 - September 1955).[3] Lubetkin was one of the 13 sons of Russian immigrants Max Lubetkin (1851-1919) and Rachel Miriam Madansky (1857-1919). At his death Sullivan left his estate in trust for life use of Lubetkin and, upon his death, for the life use of Edward E. Hoenig. At the death of Lubetkin and then Hoenig, the fund was turned over to form the "William Matheus Sullivan Musical Foundation".[4]

Arcie Lubetkin donated the Hammond electric organ to the Mead Memorial Chapel, Waccabuc, New York, in memory of Sullivan. The organ was dedicated in September 1947 by David Williams, organist at St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church (Manhattan). The organ is important from an heritage point of view, since there are not many Hammond organs still existing. The commemorative plaque reads "Remembrance. The only paradise from which we cannot be driven."[5]
