Heartfelt condolences to Sean's family. He was so patient with all my questions, quick with a smile for me, and always willing to listen. Sean was truly one of the finest men I ever worked with in 30 years at the department. Godspeed, friend.

Sean was the best supervisor I ever worked for. He was never politically correct and we were all better for it.

May your family find peace in this difficult time. Working with Sean as newby making mistakes and he would teach the way to do it right. My experience was he was one of the few that shared, versus withheld his knowledge. I will not forget that about him.

I'm truly saddened hearing the news of Sean's passing. For all of us that passed through CMPD during his watch worked with a law enforcement icon. A great man, true professional and a loyal friend. Rest well.
