  1. We remember Sean and his great smile. Our deepest sympathy and prayers go to his children and family. May memories of Sean give his family peace in the days ahead.

  2. Our deepest condolences for the loss of Sean. Prayers and thoughts are with you at this time.

  3. Sean was a sweet, smart and sensitive person who certainly had more than his share of difficulty in the last years of his life. Even through his struggles he retained his warm and congenial personality. He spoke of his children so lovingly and often, and I know he also adored his mom and sister as well. I will remember Sean as being a very kind and compassionate soul. I am thinking of his family as well, and hoping they can find some comfort in the love being sent to them at this time. My deepest condolences to all his family. May Sean find the unending peace he deserves on the other side of this life.

  4. Sue, even though I never met your husband, I am so sorry for your loss.
    Please know I am thinking of you.

  5. I am so sorry, Sue. My other comment was wrong. I never met your son, and I said husband. Leave it to me to mess this up!
    Again, I am so sorry.

  6. I grew up knowing Sean and remember that he was always kind, supportive and had a great sense of humor. My deepest sympathies go out to his family and prayers during this time.

  7. My deepest sympathy and thoughts to Sue and family. I’m so sorry for your loss. May you all find memories to soften your struggles and warm your heart.

  8. I was one of many caregivers for Sean in later years. He was a sweet guy and he will be missed….

  9. Sean was a very funny and highly devoted Husker fan. We became friends in 7th grade while attending Goodrich Junior High and where our initial friendship started. We had a few classes together, but always ended up getting into some sort of mischief together. Sean lived life well and enjoyed the gym life, video gaming, golfing and having fun. We had a blast growing up through the years as adolescents and then young adults.

    We usually knew what the other was thinking. Whenever there was a football game and Nebraska was playing Colorado we both cheered on opposite ends. It was a fun time for both of us during this old time rivalry and we enjoyed it. I sucked at golf but went occasionally anyways because we would talk, walk, and spend time together. I miss that and will always miss that, our friendship.

    As we got older he became a husband and soon after a father. He was devoted to his kids and adored them. Family was important for Sean he loved them and loyalty for his friends was reciprocated.

    I’ll miss Sean dearly always and forever. I know that he had his battles in life like most of do but some may not know that. He didn’t give up he kept trying to succeed. He was excited to of been making a good turn around but cut short in life.

    I wish his family the best and every bit of my condolences for all. Sean was a good guy with a good heart and will be missed. ❤️

  10. Sue, this is Judy Krasomil. I was so sorry to hear about Sean’s death! Such an unimaginable way to lose him! I just wanted you and Stacey to know that Joe and I are thinking about you guys.

    I have been wondering how you are doing for the last several years but could not figure out how to contact you. When you feel up to it I would love to get together and reconnect. My phone number is in the book.
