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.
