Sean Alan Brittingham - Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Homes & Crematory

Sean Alan Brittingham

December 18, 1991 - January 30, 2016

Sean Alan Brittingham, age 24, an angel that walked among us, earned his wings on the evening of January 30, 2016 after battling a war with Leukemia. As Sean did in life, he gave it his all and beat it, but the toll it took on his body was too much.

Sean, whom friends nicknamed Baby J (Jesus), loved life. He possessed quality friends and loved ones. Sean was a wonderful listener and advisor. He was always inspired to go the extra mile, showing his family and friends positive motivation in life and all that the world had to offer. His strong-willed nature made it impossible to give up on those who he thought needed to be shown a deeper self worth and ability within themselves.

Those closest to Sean knew how devoted he was to his family, friends, and the love of his life, Fallon Hurley. Sean had a magnetic personality and a huge heart, always attracting friends and putting their needs before himself. He had many interests and hobbies, including the game Halo, numerous other X-Box games, and strategic games of poker. Sean was a huge fan of animals, anime, real estate, the stock market, and luxury cars, specifically Audi’s. He would always find time to enjoy a good cup of coffee from Dunkin Donuts. He enjoyed collecting many things, such as swords and anime memorabilia. Sean also had a passion for music. He excelled at playing the drums and liked the music of Rise Against, Billy Talent, and Bob Marley. Sean was a great debater, although he sometimes seemed hard-headed, he usually ended up being right. He dreamed of owning his own psychology practice, a field that he cherished so dearly.

Sean had a lasting impact on every person that he met. He touched the hearts and lives of each one of his family and friends. Sean will be missed dearly.

Sean is preceded in death by his brother, Vinnie Earl Brittingham, Jr; grandfather, Charles Powell, Sr.; and grandmother, Helen Powell.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by his sister, Brittany Brittingham; grandfather, Earl Brittingham; step-grandmother Luella Brittingham; grandmother, Charlotte Britingham; girlfriend, Fallon Hurley; and beloved pets, ferret, Mikah “Momma”; german shepard, Sadie; and chihuahua, Scooter.

A funeral service will be held at 1:00 pm on Monday, February 8, 2016, at the Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home of Wilmington Manor, 1000 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE, where a visitation will be held from 11:00 am-1:00 pm. Interment will be held in Gracelawn Memorial Park, 2220 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Delaware Chapter, 1311 Manaponeck Ave, St 310, White Plains, NY, 10605.

  • Sean had a beautiful aura. His aura was bright and colorful and magical.

    Red – the color of strength, strong passion and will.
    Yellow – the color of optimism.
    Green – the color of sympathy and calm and reliability.
    Blue – the color of quiet and calm, and of spirituality.
    Violet – the color of one who is seeking something in life.

    Sean would light up a room with his smile. His energy generated happiness. He demonstrated confidence and leadership. He wasn’t afraid to be unique. He communicated and interacted with everyone. He showed respect and concern for others. He was knowledgeable and well rounded. He was an advocate for others. He was wise beyond his time.

    Sean’s “Legacy” will live on. Sean was a great son. A wonderful and loving big brother. A caring boyfriend. An animal lover. And a friend to all!

    Words cannot express what I feel but my heart goes out to you and your family and I wish you peace at this time. God bless you Brenda and Vince for raising such a beautiful and kind and loving man.

  • Sean,
    I will never forget that very first day sitting in the ER with you and your mother…before we even knew exactly how sick you were. Some of the things you said to me and questions you asked during those very few seconds your mom had to step away from your side and unable to hear…keep replaying in my head. I knew how scared and concerned you were then and all throughout your battle to defeat the war, but I didn’t realize at first that most of your fear and concern wasn’t for yourself. It was really directed towards your mom and dad…Brittus…and Fallon and Brandon. That was the most valuable quality you possessed that I believe attracted everyone who ever crossed paths with you. SELFLESSNESS. You are the most beautifully SELFLESS person I ever have known and probably ever will know. You fought that war with everything you had in you and you fought it well and never once gave up despite how you were feeling and what you thought the outcome would be. I know you did it all because of that selfless love you have and because you didn’t want to ever see those you held close in your heart to hurt or feel any pain that you wouldn’t be here to help them recover from and to keep them from having any reason to give up in this life and not keep pushing and shoving and moving forward. That is the Sean I watched grow into most in such little time while fighting his war. He loved his Dad and his Mom with all of himself and never wanted to have them have to endure the hurt and emptiness of losing another child again. It was the one thing I personally know that pained him more than any other kind or physical pain anyone could ever experience. He never could give up on them and I can’t honestly say that I myself would ever be a person of that strength. My heart…it just aches knowing I will never see your smiling face looking at me while out front cutting your lawn with those bright pink Beats headphones on. That you won’t come walking through my door to go look through my frig and cabinets trying to find that “something” that will really fix your odd craving at the moment. I won’t hear you shouting through your house at that fellow gamer on the other end of your gamer mic or that you won’t be popping your head through my door asking if Haley is ready to run up to Dunkin for iced coffee…and most of all…I ache sooo much seeing how much you are thought about in your sisters eyes and missed by the sound of your mom and dads voice when your name is spoken and just thinking how all of them are supposed to live each day without you physically here. I miss you so much, Seanster. Help us all to stay strong. I love you.
