Sean Michael Bureau, 42, of Bradenton, Florida, passed away on Sunday October 10, 2021.

A gathering of family & friends for Sean will be held Friday, October 15, 2021 at 3:30 PM at Robert Toale and Sons Funeral Home at Palms Memorial Park, 170 Honore Ave, Sarasota, FL 34232, followed by a memorial service at 4:30 PM.

Sean was born in Hartford, CT on October 24, 1978. He graduated from AuSable Valley Central School in Clintonville, NY where he enjoyed many laps around the school pool with his swimming teammates. Sean attended SUNY Potsdam, Stony Brook University and later served in the United States Coast Guard. Sean married Jen Rullman on July 2, 2005 in Huntington, NY. Sean worked as a Sr. Product Manager for Charles Schwab for the past 4 years.

In his free time, Sean could be found cheering on his beloved New York Giants or listening to Dave Matthews Band recorded or, better yet, in person. Sean loved camping and sharing that experience with his family. He enjoyed music, concerts and had a zest for life. He never knew a stranger. However, far and away, his greatest passion was being a father to his two children Addison and Alexander.

He will be remembered as a loving father, husband, son, brother, brother-in-law, son-in-law, uncle, nephew and friend. In short, he will be remembered as loving.

Sean is survived by his wife Jen, children Addie and Alex, mother Peggy Bureau, mother-in-law Diane Rullman, father-in-law George Rullman, sister Alicia Martisus and her husband Derek, brother Jordan Bureau, sister-in-law Michelle Eggert, brother-in-law Evan Rullman.

Sean is preceded in death by his brother Justin, father Ronald and dogs Jake, Dutch, Lexi and Chang.

My deepest condolences go to Jen, Addie and Alex

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I've known Jen since high school and had the honor of meeting Sean during Jens college years at Hofstra University. One of my funnest memories was when Sean had to be back on base in Virginia beach and on his way off of long island his car broke down and he was stuck but had to be there no matter what. Jen and I looked at each other and said "road trip". We got in the car scooped him up and 6 hours later we were there and I even got the honor of getting a personal tour of one of the ships. A memory I will forever cherish and I'm grateful for that car breaking down. It saddens me so much to have such a great friend go through such a tragedy at such a young age. Jen I know you so well and know what a strong person you are and I know you will pull through this not only for yourself but for your children. Sean will be with you every step of the way!! And if you ever need a shoulder to cry on or an someone to just talk to know I'm always here for you and a phone call away!! I send all of you my condolences and all my love to you, your beautiful children and all Sean's family and friends

With much love,

Kristi, Megan, Matthew and

Such an unexpected and heartbreaking loss. Sean would randomly text or call - usually from his campsite - always sharing his family exploits, RV life, work opportunities, recent move to Florida, and his philosophy on life, dreams and struggles. I appreciate the short time that I knew him, and his love for family.

My fondest memory is when he dropped the winch handle off of our houseboat when we were driving back to the Marina, and in the middle of Lake Powell he jumped into the water and swam to retrieve it. Sean was your instant friend - the guy you would want as a neighbor, co worker, or in the heat of battle.

My heart breaks for Jen, Addison and Alex, Peggy, Alicia and Jordon and the entire extended family. Sean will be missed but never forgotten.

Jen, Addie, Alex , Peggy , Jordan ,

My heart goes out to all of you in such a difficult time. It’s only time that will help soften the pain this heartbreaking loss. We all have so many happy memories of Sean and his family. I don’t even know where I would start to share all our memories we have with Sean. The best memory for us was when Sean Jen and Addie came on our houseboat . Sean helped us so much and we tried to get him to come out again this year. We will be celebrating his life this week at Powell.

Love you all, Paula and Rob

Please accept my deepest condolences in this difficult and unexpected time. I share your pain and I keep you in my prayers. May God rest his soul in peace and give great comfort to Sean's family and friends.

Sean was my manager and he was a very kind person. Everyone on the team loved him. The news about his death was and is very hard to accept. With God's love for his children, his family will be OK and he will rest in peace.

I met Sean at SUNY Potsdam. He was always so kind and unassuming; the kind of guy you knew you could trust right away. I have enjoyed watching his adventures via social media over the years, always jealous of his DMB camping weekends! My heart goes out to his family and close circle of friends. May he live on in your hearts every day.
