Obituary for Sean Stinson

Sean Kevin "Turtle" Stinson gained his heavenly wings on Sunday October 22, 2017 surrounded by family. Sean was born July 10, 1990 to Dennis & Alicia Stinson and shortly thereafter was diagnosed with Scoliosis, seizure disorder & Cerebral Palsey. Sean was a courageous warrior overcoming illness and low odds to ever see his 20s.

Sean, although confined to a wheelchair, enjoyed the ocean, nature & traveling. He loved marine animals, namely turtles and dolphins. Although he could never ride, he enjoyed seeing and hearing motorcycles, especially the loud pipes of his father's and brother's Harley Davidsons. Despite his adversities, Sean obtained his honorary diploma from Lewis Central HS and was proud to be a Titan.

Sean was a loving soul trapped in a broken body, however, his spirit outshined the illnesses. He had the ability to make everyone around him feel loved and welcomed.

Sean is survived by his parents, brother Will & significant other Eryka, four-legged companion Connor, paternal grandparents Polly & Keith Stinson of Avon Park, FL, numerous aunts, uncles, caregivers and friends, including his best friend since toddler age- Sara Williams.

Sean was welcomed into heaven by many relatives, including his very special uncle "Sporty" whom we all believe was waiting at the pearly gates with a cold adult beverage so Sean could finally taste a beer.

Visitation is 6:00p.m. to 8:00p.m. on Friday at the Hoy-Kilnoski Funeral Home. Funeral service is 1:00p.m. on Saturday at the funeral home. Memorials are suggested to the family.
