Dear Sean, we can’t begin to explain what an amazing and valuable friend you were to the Donalds. Right from the beginning of our friendship you showed what a genuine, helpful and special person you were. Our home is full of reminders of all the times you spent with us, from all our lights, our extension and the bus shelter. We think about you when we make a cuppa, open the beer fridge and listen to our music. Our boys loved having you around, scoffing at your jokes and your teasing. In our times of need you were there to look after our boys, Krystal & even Vicky the cat. We love you Sean and you have left a void that cannot be filled. The Donald family are so fortunate to have had you as their friend. RIP our beautiful friend.
Beautiful service x You have all done Sean proud. All our love to you all 💙💙💙💙
Lost for words that you are taken far too soon. You were our neighbor for 6 years with a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. A true grafter that never gave up. Thinking of your lovely boys at this sad time.
Condolences to all the family, our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Requiescat in pace Sean.
Sean, every memory I have of you is filled with happiness and laughter. Words can't describe the void you have left in everyone's lives. You were one of a kind. Love and miss you forever. X
Rest in peace Sean. Gone too soon. Thinking of all the family. Thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love from all the O'Donnells from Bridge of Earn , Perthshire. Xxx
Rest easy big fella. You will be hugely missed ❤
Sean, I can’t begin to put into words how much we are all going to miss you. You were always so much fun to be around and we were always so excited when we were staying with you, Nicky and the boys on our trips to Edinburgh. You really do hold the title for the best fry up!
It was clear that you were so proud of your boys and I’m sure they have made you proud today. Your humour would always lighten any dark situation, so I know you’d be making fun of me for writing this! Just know that I love and miss you so much. Love from “Big T” xxx
Sean, you were taken too soon. I can’t begin to describe the man that you were and will always be remembered for. You were the best man and will be missed immeasurably. You would be so proud of your boys today, they are a testament to you and Nicky. Life and family gatherings won’t be the same without you. Love you so much Sean xxx
Nicola and the boys, What a beautiful service and tribute to Sean. Heartfelt sentiments from everyone, humour, his music, fab photos, but most of all a huge outpouring of love and respect to a. Much loved man.
Well done and thank you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
A lovely service that captured Sean’s spirit and humour perfectly. May he Rest In Peace and the memories a blessing on his family forever.
Sean no words can say how much I will miss you. I still get up,make a cuppa and get ready to video call you. Then I remember. I am glad we sat together in English class then years later we reconnected. We had some good banter. Almost 5 years of me driving you potty but it made you smile. I told you that you are my kryptonite and you will always be. Thankyou for spending quality time with me and making me laugh xxx
To my favourite brother in law- today has been truly heartbreaking for us all, but this will not be how we remember you. Your cheek, banter and always being there for people will be in our minds and hearts alongside your 4 boys who will make you even prouder. Thank you for always being there for me and being the closest I have ever had to a brother . Nothing was ever too much trouble for you - I was like the third wheel when you and Nicky got together. You even laughed when I threw yogurt at you , which you always would me up about. We shared some lovely memories from holidays at center parks, Alton towers to kylie minogue concerts but will never forget your legendary sausage roll breakfasts. Will never ever forget you , love you so much, your favourite sister and law (even though I was your only one but as you said ‘that’s not the point!). 💚❤️ Ang & Paul xxxx
God bless a top man. Thanks for all the laughs, friendship and kindness.
Love Martin, Susan, Conal and Ellis. X
With love and prayers for Sean, and for all the family at this time. May he rest in peace.
Jim, Tracey and family.
Sean, totally lost for words. You always lit up the room with your funny witty charm. We were privileged to become close friends and enjoy your company at a few parties and gatherings. You helped us out in so many ways and never wanted anything in return. I still laugh at the fire extinguisher you bought us as a house warming (in case Grayce left the gas on again!) and the story you so often told about our dog liking legs! As part of our group of friends you will be so very missed! We are here for your beautiful family should they ever need anything. Fly high and keep laughing xx
We as a family send our deepest sympathy to your 4 boys..Conor, Paddy, Ronan and Liam.
We also send love and hugs to Rose and Danny, your parents, in Edinburgh and to your sisters Rosemarie, Eileen, Susanne and our beloved Tracy.
We can only hope and pray that your big brother Danny was waiting to welcome you home along with friends and family gone before us. I've no doubt Bridie and Robert will already have a wee job for you.
Sleep well Sean.
Shaun, Anne, Eileen, Paul and Clare Mackie 💔
I am very grateful to have met Sean. He really was a great bloke and very entertaining to be around. You guys held a very honourable Eulogy, with Paddy and Conor's speeches being very touching. Sending lots of love to all five of you.
Sean, we remember fondly meeting you through Cubs and having a chinwag each week. We only managed to capture every third word, but we knew from the big grin on your face and the cheeky smile, that you were our sort of person. You and Nicky have given the greatest gift to the world in your four boys and we know that she will continue to take care of them for you and that they will continue to make you proud. Rest easy mate and have a pint for us. Tim, Louise, Emily, William and Jacob Bradley xx
I will miss you Sean, thanks for taking me to taekwondo when mum and dad couldn't and singing in the car with me, everyone will look after each one of the boys and Nicky, fly high now with all the angels Rest In Peace xx
A true friend with a bad haircut. I’ll remember you forever buddy. RIP
Sean you have been taken far too young and will be a miss to all. Without you and Nicky I would not have been able to work full time. You took Adam and Ross in the school holidays. Having four boys of your own you must of been mad! You and Nicky provided my boys with stability and laughter at a difficult time. Adam and Ross have such fond memories and thankfully still support Hearts and you couldn't turn them into Celtic fans.Danny and Rose raised a true gentleman. Nicky you have been an amazing strength. Love to all the boys. Sleep tight Sean x
Sean was an amazing work colleague and friend, always up for a laugh and had a heart of gold. Will miss him and seeing him walk Daisy past us in the afternoons. Sending lots love to Sean’s family.
Dear Nicky, Conor, Paddy, Ronan and Liam,
I remember going on Grade 3 camp with Sean as a parent helper. Sean was chatting away to me and I had no idea what he was saying - couldn't understand a thing!! I just kept nodding and saying 'Oh Yeah'.
My sincerest condolances to you all on this very sad and sudden loss of a good man.
Love to all, Miriam xxxx
Sean was one of the best men I knew, and a father figure to me when I lost my own father. Will miss his quick thinking and sardonic sense of humor. He was always willing to help others, and an inspiration to us younger men. Rest in Power.
Sean, you were a great neighbour to have in the street, even though we could only pick up every second word with your strong Scottish accent. 😄. You had a heart of gold and were there for us and anyone when they needed you. I’m sorry I never got to have a last beer with you, and will have a few for you and with you tonight. Watch over your kids mate and will see you again one day for a few beers. Love from Scott and Maryanne
Sean, I am still in disbelief that this has actually happened! Im gonna miss your wonderful sarcarsm and wit, it was still with you till the very end, you didnt half give them nurses some amazing one liners they will never forget. Take care my wonderful friend xxx
Thinking of you all at this sad time
RIP Sean xx🙏🙏🙏☘💚
I'll never forget the day I met Sean and Nicky. Sean's sense of humour poured out and each time we caught up he would give me a mouthful. Such a funny guy who loved and was so proud of his boys. Rest in peace Sean, you will be missed. xx
Sweet dreams Sean. Xxx 💙💕💜
Sending all our love and thoughts to Nicky and the boys at this sad time. Thinking back to all the good times we had. Sean may you Rest In Peace!
Love Leanne, Jonathan, Katie and Charlie xxxx
I'm sorry we couldn't be there today, wish we could give you all a proper hug. Will see you as soon as we are allowed to travel. Will miss your dad, he was always good to me. Lots of love from our family to yours xx
Sean, Thank you for being you. A loving , caring, hard working guy. A great Father and Son in law. Never forgotten. All the happy memories will live on through your lovely boys. Rest in peace. Love you always xxxxxxxxx
Sean, you are a great loss to family and friends. You were taken away far too early from us. It is sad in these unpleasant times that we all can't come together to say goodbye, but be rest assured with all our love and support Nicky and the boys will be looked after. Rest In Peace
Sean, Gone way to soon. I will miss our catch ups and those crazy jokes you always had - always trying to stitch up someone for a laugh. I am glad you journeyed to Australia and became a part of my life and the Scout family. Your wonderful 4 boys will ensure your light will still shine through them and I know they were your proudest achievements. Nicola and you have done an amazing job with them especially the courage you showed them in the last many weeks. You will be missed dearly, Fly high always XXOO
To Nicky, Conor, Paddy, Ronan & Liam,
We are thinking of you all today, as you go through this difficult time sending you our heartfelt condolences. No word suffice how sorry we are for your loss. Sean may you Rest In Peace!
Oh Sean, still can't believe it. You've been in my life for the last 32 years and I have endless fun and happy memories. You have given me the greatest gift, our four beautiful boys. You will be so proud of them, how they have been amazing.
I am so grateful that I could share these last 8 weeks with you and how we slipped right back into married life. I never stopped loving you and I am very privileged that you shared your wishes with me and allowed me to cuddle up in bed with you every day. Thank you for allowing me to sing even if you did tell me "only in the shower"!
So, this is the end of our journey, but you will always live on in our boys. I am heartbroken but will love you always and will miss you forever.
So sad to hear of Sean’s passing. I worked with Sean for about 3 or 4 years with MW Engineers. He was always a positive hard working person. He was also a lot of fun socially and I enjoyed more than a few drinks at various events with him. His broad accent got more broad as the nights got later. Sean was a good guy who passed on too soon. Condolences to the family and friends of Sean.
My heart is breaking for your sons and our family. You were taken way too soon from us all. Too young and too soon. You will be missed more than I can ever express. Hope you are up there having a laugh with Nana, Granda and Danny boy. Until we see each other again Sean. I love you loads.
Sending my love and condolences to the family. So sorry to hear about Sean. Always had a smile on his face and knew how to bring joy and laughter to every single day. Great man and friend, he will be missed but memories will remain with us 🙏🏽
So sad that this happened to you with such a nice person and in such young age!
My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
Your loss to the family is immeasurable Sean.I’ve read all of these wonderful comments about you and everything I want to say about you has already been said. You were a “genuine good guy” and I can never thank you enough for the start in life you gave my sons here in Scotland. I assure you that your 4 sons will always have a friend here and, should they ever need my help, I promise I will do my best for them. Rest easy Sean.
Rest in peace Shaun a lovely guy taken much too early my heart felt sympathy goes out to all your family and friends, Nicola and your four amazing boys.

Good Afternoon Sean. You always said it to everyone even when it wasn't the afternoon. It's memories like those that keep you with us, always.
Throughout everything you made a big impact on the “Williams”, we each have a memory of you that we remember the most.
Driving back from many Rail sites exchanging stories with Bono in the background driving us home with Beautiful Day.

Sean was always up for a chat and had a wicked sense of humour.
You will be sadly missed.
Gone far too soon. Hard to believe I won't see you again out walking the dog or bump into you at the shopping centre.
Sean, you were one of the few genuine good guys, you will be so sorely missed by all who knew you. You were always helping people, game for a laugh or wind-up and you got the best of me sooooo many times xx

Like the rest of his family and friends, my heart is breaking at the loss of such a wonderful person. We hadn’t seen other a long time, but that didn’t matter. You will be missed, pal, you will definitely be missed. All my love and deepest sympathy to the boys and to the rest of the family. If there is a heaven, I know you are there .
Fly high with the angels now Sean. I am grateful to have been a part of your life. You’ve left a big hole in many hearts and will be forever missed. Your dedication to your family, your happy and positive outlook on life and your sense of humour will always be remembered.
Your legacy lives on through your four amazing and wonderful boys who I am proud to call my cousins. I know you will be watching over them and Nicola now and keeping them safe.
I will also be forever in your debt at the dedication from you to spending a fortune in coles so you could collect the little shops for Elizabeth! God knows how long that took you to fill the bag.
God rest your soul Sean, be free and you will forever be in my prayers.
All our love
Laura & Elizabeth xxx
One of life’s good guys gone far to soon. Always had time for a blether and always great fun. Thinking of all your loved ones here and back home.
Sleep tight big lad
Sean, one of life’s good guys. Hard working, genuine, dedicated to your family. Thank you for everything Sean. You were always so very kind to me and Beb. You and Nicola always welcomed us into your home and allowed us to be part of your family life. Great memories of “The mad house” at Fox Covert, our trips around Australia, and our sessions in the garden when you always got me drunk! You have left a huge gap in a lot of lives Sean, but have left the world a wonderful legacy in your 4 lovely Sons. I know you will always watch over them, and they’ll continue to make you proud. Good less you. Rest in peace pal. Until we meet again (better start stocking up on the wine now), xxxxxxxx”The Auld Yin”

Genuinely one of the nicest guys I've come across and the world will be a much lesser place without him.
Rest easy mate 💚
Proud to be one of Sean's token English friends. A great guy taken too soon. Thinking of his boys during this sad time.
