Sean P. O'Neil

AGE: 54 • Media, PA

Sean P O'Neil, 54, of Media Pennsylvania, passed away too soon on 10 August 2014.

He was born in New Brunswick, New Jersey on November 12th 1959 to Mike and Pat O'Neil (Moriarity). Sean graduated from A. I. Dupont High School, after which he attended The University of Delaware where he earned his Bachelors Degree in Engineering and Masters Degree in Business. He was married to Karyn Thompson on October 20th 1984.

Sean and Karyn met in college at The University of Delaware and were married shortly after graduation. During and following the marriage Sean was employed by Dupont Corporation and spent the next twenty years with the Company in a variety of roles where he was exposed to diverse groups of people and cultures via his travels around the globe. He was blessed with wonderful parents who instilled in him an unmatched quality of character and genuine respect for people. His experiences during this period in his life built upon the foundation laid in his upbringing giving him the ability to make everyone around him feel welcome, listened to and cared for.

Sean is survived by his amazing and caring wife and children; Karyn, Meghan and Colin O'Neil. He is also survived by his parents Mike and Pat O'Neil and siblings Kevin, Mary Patricia, Brian, Mary Elizabeth, and Mary Jean and their extended families.

Sean was always one to make his own way and chose to embark on a new journey later in life by running his own soup business, under the name of Book Binders Specialties, a well known brand in the Philadelphia region with national distribution. With a focus on spending more time with his family, and growing his business, Sean raised two amazing children who emulate and carry on his legacy.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, August 13 at 10 am at St. Joseph on the Brandywine Church, 10 Old Church Rd., Greenville. Burial will be private.
