My sympathies to entire DonCarlos family for the loss of Sean.
So very sorry for your unimaginable loss, Don Carlos family… we pray for you God’s peace, the peace that passes all understanding.
As a Fraternity brother and long-time friend of Sean, he will be sorely missed by everyone he knew. He was brilliant, witty, and engaging and actively pushed each of us to be better people and live our lives with purpose and dignity. He was a great guy with whom to take a long road trip because he had wide ranging interests, was very well read, and listened to any form of music from string quartets to doom metal. And he was a man unafraid to call out a chef for a poorly cooked meal or a bartender for a poorly mixed drink.
My most sincere condolences to his family and his friends in the West End.
Always a faithful brother, Brother. We’ll meet again soon and you’re making the cocktails.
Touched so many lives, made such a positive impact in this world. Few have little idea of your reach and influence.
Loved. Respected. Honored.
Condolences to the DonCarlos family. Sean will be missed.
Was stunned and saddened to hear of Sean’s passing. He had done so much to make you proud and surely has left many mourning losing him so soon. So Guy and Sue have moved to Wyoming-my grandson Sean attends the University of Wyoming. My heartfelt sympathy to your entire family at this sad time. As long as memories warm our hearts, our loved ones are never really gone.
