Sean, You were a great friend to my husband, GySgt. Eric Tant and me. We spent some good times at your rental house in Pensacola. I pray that you found peace, Sean. You can be on a never ending fishing excursion now! Condolences to all his family and especially his children, who loved very much. We love you, brother. Siemper Fi!

Sean, Gone too soon. May you and Jill meet again one day and carry on your undying love for each other. You two were together until the end; against all others. The people at your side at the end are your angels, and you are theirs.

My heartfelt sympathy on your family’s loss of Sean. I got to know Sean through his high school years at Broadneck High School in Annapolis, Md. My son and Sean were both on the track team and became very good friends. I always thought of the track team kids as my kids. Every Friday night they were at our house. It warms my heart to know that they felt so welcome at our home. Sean will always be in my heart. Keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Rest Easy Dad! My prayers go out to everyone who has a place in their heart for my Dad, especially his immediate family and Jill, who was with him until the end. I will always cherish the good memories of my childhood spent with you. I pray you are now at ease up there with Grandma and Aunt Patti. Love always, Amber Powell

It is with heavy heart I write this. I cannot thank you enough for the joy and love you brought to my other mother, Jill. The light and love you two shared was unmatched and set the expectation for all love in everyones lives that met you two. I wish I could be there to celebrate your life, but the rona and the CDC, but know I will be there via zoom respectfully as I know that you would want your close friends and family, ONLY, to be there together undisturbed.

I hope that the days ahead will bring peace and comfort to you all in that Sean is now at peace and not suffering. Also, my condolences go out to Deborah Laughter. I am so sorry for your loss. During the times I encountered you and Sean throughout the years, the love you shared was very obvious. To all Sean’s friends, family, and loved ones: Sean had a special place in his heart for each and everyone of you. Please remember all the times you spent with him and cherish each one of these memories. Because—this will carry you through the days ahead. My thoughts and prayers will be with each one of you.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. "Rest In Peace" Gunny Cavnar.

Sean, I remember when Deborah introduce us, you were a kind and sweet man. You were the best cook, and enjoyed coming over to eat with you and Deborah. I know in my heart y’all were soulmates. I’m so sorry Dianath for you and your beautiful girls. Please know you, Deborah, and the family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I have no words for your passing. I remember meeting you as this mystery man that my Jill talked so highly of. You came in and brought a glow to her heart. And for that, I will always keep you near to my heart. I thank you for your the love you gave and the love your memory will continue to give. You will rest with great honor. Jill and your family will make sure of that, by any means. Love and Respect. Rest well
