Sean I'm praying for you and your family! You tortured me all through grade school, our paths crossed often in our later years. You were always such a great funny guy! The few times at knights with my dad, going to your house after the Calvary reunion,then when you showed up at my house with Nicole, and the few times at Three Monkeys and of course our Ryan Reunions. Great memories that I will always treasure. You will be missed by so many! I will remember you forever. Prayers for your wife Patty and both of your beautiful children. RIP Sean gone but not ever forgotten. ??

My thoughts and prayers are with Sean's family and friends. He truly was such a special person...although it has been years since I've seen him, I will never forget his laugh or the way he loved to have fun. I don't think I ever saw him in a bad mood. He taught us all how to enjoy life to its fullest. I am so happy he got to be a daddy. His children are and always will be blessed to have him as their father.

Patty Anne, little Sean, Jr., Faith, Hogan and Reilly families,
I sit here with the heaviest of hearts as I try to find the proper words to express the grief I have in my heart for all of you during this most difficult time. I will remember Sean for many things: 1) his amazing smile and wonderful personality that would both light up any room that he would walk into, 2) the pride I saw in him when he became a husband, to Patty Anne, and a " Daddy ", to Sean, Jr. and Faith. It was very obvious that he loved being a family man, and 3) the amazing and courageous fight he put up this past year, and all he went through to be cancer free... he never gave up! Patty, you are so blessed to call Sean your " husband ", and he gave you a part of him that he gave to no one else, adorable Sean, Jr. and beautiful Faith Marie. Always remember that Sean touched everyone he met, in a very special way and he will be sadly missed. I will continue to keep all of you close in thought and prayer in the days and months ahead.

Love and deepest sympathy,
Thursday, September 26, 2013
Sean was the kind of guy you never forget and a one of a kind. His family extended throughout the community . His children will be proud of the man and father he was. Thoughts and Prayers. The Connellys

So heaven has received another angel
The night sky another star
Your life has become a loving memory
I know you will never be far.
You were really one in a million
A cut above the rest
All that knew you would agree
You simply were the best.
So Sean I will say goodbye
I miss you with all my heart,
But as long as I have all the funny memories
We will never be too far apart. R.I.P. Sean you will never be forgotten.

My deepest condolences to the Hogan family. Sean was one hell of a guy, great friend, awesome cook and a cheater at poker. I enjoyed working with him for the short time that I did as well as cherished the friendship that was formed. He could always make you laugh even if you didn't want to. Sean may you rest in peace free of pain and watch over your wife and kids. The good Lord has gained one heck of an angel. Until we meet again.

I will always remember Sean requesting some of his favorite songs from me at Knights'.

I worked with Sean a few years back as his chief. Besides being a very good firefighter that was a huge asset to his company, Sean was the hub of the firehouse, providing continuous stories and antics that kept everybody cracking up. I always think of him laughing and that brings a smile to my face. I pray for him and your family at this tragic time. I know that he is cracking them up in heaven.
Wednesday, September 25, 2013
"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit." Sean, you've certainly rekindled the inner spirits of all that have had the pleasure of knowing you. Rest in peace, my friend.

May you see God's light on the path ahead When the road you walk is dark. May you always hear, Even in your hour of sorrow, The gentle singing of the lark. When times are hard may hardness Never turn your heart to stone, May you always remember when the shadows fall— You do not walk alone.

Sean,
We didn't always see eye to eye or agree on things but as we entered our so-called adult years, we seemed to find the place in the middle. A joke hear or there, one of us would respond with some sarcasm back and forth and all would be okie dokie. (Prime Example,that night at Knights where you had me convinced (until Burkie clarified things for me)that you owned the bar.

I know there are other memories but I am just drawing a blank on them presently, just know that the lives you touched are forever better for having known you and hopefully knowing that will provide some comfort to your family in this very emotional time.
God bless you, sending many thoughts and prayers to you and your family!
You will be missed!
