Fred G. Sullivan Jr., 50, whose film "The Beer Drinker's Guide to Fitness and Film Making" acquired a cult following, died April 18 of heart failure in Saranac Lake, N.Y.

"The Beer Drinker's Guide" was a quirky self-portrait of the struggling filmmaker, his wife and four children. Released in 1988, it was first shown at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

He was working on a sequel at the time of his death.

Robert Rade Stone, 68, a former city council president and fund-raiser for Serbian causes, died Friday of a heart attack in Pittsburgh. He was a lawyer for a United Steelworkers union local in East Pittsburgh when he was asked to run for the council. In office from 1973 to 1985, he helped establish the city's paramedic service.
