  5. For those who didn’t know, Sean was a tremendous musical talent, and had not only the playing ability, but technical know-how of guitars that was nothing but impressive. His craft reached into other continents with touring musicians seeking out his guitar expertise, and sending him thank you videos for his dedication. As a railroad brother and fellow musician, I was proud to call Sean a friend.

  6. Sean will truly be missed in this world. I was shocked to hear of his passing. We shared a passion for music and guitars, and he was an incredibly talented musician. He could also make me laugh hard with his quick wit and his bold way of just telling it like it is. Godspeed Sean. My sincerest condolences to his family and friends.

  7. To Sean’s family and friends,

    I’m so very sorry for your loss. Although it’s been a few years since I’ve last seen Sean, I’ll never forget his larger than life personality and ability to fill a room with laughter. The world just lost a truly great soul and he will be forever missed by many.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this very sad time.

    With heartfelt condolences,
    Christine Moore

  10. Sean,
    You will be missed greatly. Thank you for your friendship and advice. God bless your family.


  11. Sean-
    I will never forget our times we shared together. Thank you for the memories.
    Rest in peace

  12. I was saddened to learn you were sick, then about your passing. I enjoyed the times I was fortunate enough to hang out with you and regret that we never were able to get together to jam. You will be missed my friend. My thoughts and prayers to your family.

  13. I do like the manner in which you have presented this specific matter plus it really does present me personally some fodder for consideration. On the other hand, through what precisely I have personally seen, I simply just trust as other commentary stack on that people today keep on point and not start on a soap box regarding some other news du jour. Anyway, thank you for this fantastic piece and even though I can not really concur with this in totality, I regard the perspective.
