Sean was an amazing Histio and transplant warrior who traded his sword and shield for well-deserved wings on Saturday, May 6, 2017. He was surrounded by family and friends, who told stories of his life and his shenanigans, laughing, crying, and loving him and each other.
Sean entered the world 15 weeks early in 1998 (weighing a mere 1 lb 6 oz), impatient to demonstrate just how strong and stubborn he was.
He liked riding 4-wheeler, and had future plans to do a variety of things that ranged from opening a sandwich shop near the hospital in Minneapolis to becoming a pediatric pulmonologist. He was also an avid gamer who digitally excelled at zombie killing, auto theft, and other "improper" activities.
Over the course of his life, Sean came to be someone people saw as superhuman ... invincible. He survived prematurity, pneumonias, lung transplant, liver transplant, three fights with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis, sepsis, etc. Sean faced each of these battles with a joke (often inappropriate) and a shrug. "Meh. No big deal" was his attitude. He was generous with his hugs and laughs and smiles, and inspired so many with his strength and courage. In the end, though he fought valiantly, the battle against lung rejection was one he could not win.
He Le ft behind so many people who loved him to carry on his legacy of hugs for everyone and "that's what she said".
Sean requested to be cremated, because he liked the idea of killing zombies, not becoming one.
