Sorry to hear about Sean. Just saw him at carquest a few weeks ago. Great guy that knew the business well. He will be missed.

Sad to hear this. I worked with Sean at Riverside Truck and Auto in the 1980's. He was a good guy and very knowledgeable about cars. One of our favorite customers like to call him Shawn Schlitz and teased him that his name was hard to pronounce. We lost contact after I left the auto parts business. My sympathy to his aunts and uncles.
