He was the last guy you would want to cross in a bar fight yet I never seen him throw a punch. He was many times the quiet one and yet the best time. He was the most independent person I've met yet one of became one of the most loving father and husband I knew. He was so much of a better person than I deserved yet was my closest life friend . Your my Boy Blue!

Sean was the short stop on our Clarke County State Bank slow pitch team. He had great range, a cannon for an arm , and he was a fierce competitor.
A great teammate

I was shocked and very saddened to hear about Sean's passing. I have worked with Sean for many years in Polk County Juvenile Court. He was a smart, kind, quiet, unassuming, hardworking and wonderful man. He was a pleasure to work with and a great advocate for kids. I am sorry for your loss.

Thinking of you Kellie and Marissa during this difficult time. I pray you find the strength to walk through your grief and end up on the other side. Sean will always be with you. I wholeheartedly believe that we will see our loved ones again. ❤

What a beautiful man! I truly enjoyed being a part of the process when we hire Sean as a part of the original Polk County Juvenile Court. He will be remembered as kind, smart and full of integrity! Send his soul flying to the heavens! ♥
