He was the loving husband of Maureen for 25 years and the beloved father of Marie, Brendan Rory and Eleanor.

Sean was a loyal friend to many, many people who will deeply miss him and his irreverent and infectious sense of humor. He graduated from Catholic Central High School in 1981, from Madonna University with a Bachelor’s in Public Administration in 1986 and from the University of Michigan with a Masters in Public Administration in 1992. He served the people of Wayne County throughout his 30 year career in many positions including noise abatement, emergency management, airport operations and maintenance and serving as Director of Willow Run Airport for 13 years. He retired in February of 2017 as the Wayne County Airport Authority Senior Vice President of Operations. His interests in sports and family led him to coach Men’s Varsity Lacrosse at Father Gabriel Richard High School for seven years and, in 2017, when he served as head coach, he led the team to the Catholic League Championship and a deep run in the state tournament. Sean was also the director of St. Michael Catholic School boys soccer program and orchestrated its turnaround into a championship organization. Sean was an avid political, community and charitable activist in Livonia and southeast Michigan.
