Sean Dylan Ervin July 9, 1986 - March 29, 2009 Sean Dylan Ervin made the jump from this world to the next on March 29, 2009 after a motorcycle accident in Austin, TX, where he has been living for the past four years. He was born on July 9, 1986 and was the youngest child and only boy of Dr. John Ervin and Dorie Ervin. Sean was raised and loved by his second dad, George Vigil. He was adored by his sisters, Cassie and Brieanna. Sean had an exceptionally strong bond with his Uncle Rocky, brother of Dorie. Sean had yet to have any children, but he was a large influence on his nieces, Rain and Dylan and his godson, Terrence Sean. He was looking forward to the arrival of his new niece, Guadalupe. He had two step brothers, Anthony and Eli. Sean made life seem somehow more intense and exciting any time you were around him. He was a student at ACC and worked 50 hours a week as well carrying a full course load and a 3.75 GPA. Sean recently applied to UT in both the film and philosophy departments. Sean worked at Hyde Park Gym and Maggie May's, a bar in Austin. Sean made many friends and created family at both places. This was evidenced by the large number of people that came to two remembrance gatherings held for him in Austin by his friends from work. Sean was a huge film buff famous for dropping in appropriate one-liners at the right time. Sean was interested in many areas of theatre and film. He was working on a screenplay that spoke about the many views he had on life. Sean was part of theater shows and chorus in high school. He loved music and would frequently introduce people to new genres of music with a "hey-check-this-out". Sean was strong and unwavering in his opinions and he loved to have discussions with people and take in their viewpoint and synthesize them into his philosophies. His first dad loved having long philosophical discussions with his Uncle Rocky, and Sean continued that by having many with his second dad and his Uncle Rocky. Sean had infectious joy and had the ability to turn a person's day around with a smile, quip, or strong gorilla hug. Sean had great passion for life and will continue to influence his friends and loved ones in pursuing their passion. His life was too short for all of us, but Sean had lived as much in 22 years as many of us would have in our entire lives. He would want us to take this opportunity to individually make each of our own lives more intense and to look for the joy all around us every minute of every hour of every day!! A life celebration will be held on Saturday, April 4, 2009 at 10:30 a.m. at the Crossroads United Methodist Church, 599 30 Road.

I am so sorry for you loss. Sean and I were good friends at Grand Junction High. He was such a loving and caring person. He knew just what to say to make me smile when I would be having a bad day. I will miss him and his warm smile greatly. He touched my life the moment I met him and I will always cherish the memories I have of him.

Sean and I met each other at Maggie Maes while bouncing on 6th st. We immediately became good friends. hahaha.. however. I was skeptical at first. I knew how much I loved this big guy when he convinced me to go to a haunted house together. They allowed us only 1 glow stick while walking in the dark in a maze full or monsters. I will always remember him that way. I could not be in more pain for losing him as a friend and as a human being. I lost my brother when Sean left this earth. A true beautiful and kind and awake brother.
I want you all to know that everyone that knew him loved him a GREAT deal. And he was deserving of it. I really miss Sean.
Much Love from you brother -Patrick

I am so sorry for your loss. I was Sean's Spanish teacher at ACC for 2 semesters, and I will never forget him. He was one of those rare people that touch your life in a special way. His smile and outgoing personality were infectious! He will be greatly missed by many, including me. To his family - now you will always have an angel watching over you.

I'm really sad to learn that Sean has left us all. He's a major part of what made middle and high school SO much fun. He always had a smile on his face. He NEVER failed to pick me up and give me a giant bear hug everytime I saw him; you'd think I hadn't seen him in ages, but I saw him every day! Middle school was the band years, and my absolute favorite memory from middle school was Sean-induced. Let's just say it had to do with throwing staplers, haha! Sean always went to my birthday parties, and I'll never forget my scavanger hunt party where the guys had to dress up like a famous actress and Sean showed up in a floor-length gown and full make up! Good times will live with us in pictures and memories, and I'm blessed to have had Sean as a part of my life. The last time I saw him, he was in town and called wanting to see me and our friend Lilli. I picked him up and we drove out to Lilli's house, and he hid while Lilli walked up. She had NO CLUE he was in town, and when he jumped up, she ran up to him and got one of the biggest hugs I've ever seen. I'm really sad that Sean is gone. Really sad. But I can't help but smile at his memory and think that we were all extremely luckly to have had him with us for 22 years.

I don't know how to adequately express how saddened I am for you and your family, by the loss of such a wonderful person. Sean and I didn't have a whole lot of free time, but at least once a month we would go somewhere and just hang out and discuss our many philosophies. Weather it was over a "sammich", some pie or just staring down at the world from Mt. Bonell our time was always memorable. I will miss him greatly and my heart goes out to all of you!

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not're coming here to me.

Sean and I weren't great friends, But I'll always remember him as one of the nicest guys in my grade and on the football team. Whenever I would see him at Maggie May's he would always have a smile and a warm handshake for me. It's so very sad to see someone as kind as Sean depart from this world, but I hope it teaches us to live our lives to the very fullest and with the utmost vigor.
