Sean was born October 26, 1976 to Michael and Tina Mulgrew in Torrance, CA. As a young boy he enjoyed singing, playing basketball, football and baseball. Sean attended Presentation College in South Dakota where he was a star basketball player and in 2003 received his BA degree in Social Work. He moved to Anchorage in 2012 and had worked at Sadler's Home Furnishings in Anchorage, Alaska.
"He was known to his family as a Gentle Giant' and to friends as Tree.' Standing at 6'9", most would be intimidated by his stature, but to those close to him, knew he was much bigger in heart and spirit. Sean's sensitive nature allowed him the ability to love his family and friends unconditionally. His comical demeanor, playfulness and charm made him a favorite amongst those young and old. Sean's glowing smile and contagious laugh touched the hearts of many. Coaching and mentoring young children, especially his nieces and nephews brought him great joy. Sadly on October 20, 2013 Sean's life was taken too soon. There are not enough words to express how special Sean was and how much he was loved. The sun shines less bright without him. Sean will be missed by many, but will never be forgotten and he will forever be in our hearts," wrote the family.
Sean is survived by an extensive family that loved him dearly.
Arrangements were cared for by the Anchorage Funeral Home & Crematory. Please visit Sean's obituary and online guestbook at www.AlaskanFuneral.com
