    I had the great fortune of working with Sean for several years. He was larger than life with a kind and gentle soul. His smile lit up a room and his sense of humor was often necessary to lighten the mood. He will be missed by everyone that was lucky enough to have known him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and colleagues. May he be at peace.

    I would usually catch Sean, outside working in his yard, getting home from work, or putting up their awesome Halloween Decorations, I would usually be starting a Bike ride or on the way to a customer. I would always make time to stop and talk with Sean for awhile about various things we like to talk about. Our last conversations was last month, we talked about when the weather gets better we would find a place to go fly the drones. I will miss my Friend and Neighbor.

    Sending prayers for strength and comfort to Sean’s family and friends. He was a professional whose knowledge and willingness to go above and beyond was only part of what made him a wonderful person. It was his heart, his thoughtfulness, and his laugh! He couldn’t have known a stranger. I can’t even imagine the heartbreak his family and friends are experiencing over the loss of such a great human being. I pray that memories provide strength to his loved ones as they navigate through the days, weeks, and years ahead without him.
