Sean was indeed a bright light with tremendous passion and grace, he will be missed. He was my student at Rowan and we later reconnected to become friends. I wish you and yours peace and solace in knowing what great gifts Sean shared with us in life and that many join you in celebrating his life and legacy today. Melanie Stewart
I got a letter from the school informing us of his passing. I’m so sorry to hear of this. I didn’t know him well but I did get to hear him sing a few times when I was off work doing virtual with my son. Rest In Peace Mr Clancy. Bernnel Nelson’s mother Jessie
To Sean’s family, I am so sorry for your loss. I didn’t know Sean well, but we sang together many times in choral gigs and I always enjoyed being around him. He was such a bright light. He engaged with everyone is a such a friendly, caring way and he had such a warm smile. Sean was a beautiful soul and music maker. I wish you peace and comfort as you go through this difficult time. I hope soon his memory will shine a bright light for you as he did in life.
Mr.Clancy will be missed deeply. You were always encouraging to me and a great music teacher.I will miss you. From your 5th grade student Ce'onne J. 1st grade student Christian J.
I will always remember the way he made music magical for my 4th grade class. Sean was very passionate about teaching the children new experiences. They loved the "Good bye Song" so sadly I will say, "Goodbye so long, Farwell My Friend" he will be greatly missed. We will continue to keep your family in our prayers.
So incredibly saddened by this news. I was a good friend of Sean's during our Ritz days when we were younger. "The Kid" as we all knew him, was such a friendly, loving, energetic, talented and passionate person who always saw the good in people. He was a kind soul who will be sorely missed. While we lost touch over the years I know how loved he was in his community and this is truly a tragic loss to the arts and theatre community. Sending love and prayers to his family in this most difficult time.
I remember how funny Sean was when I met him at Michael’s birthday party full of life such character so kind he will be missed
Sean was a student eager to learn everything about music. He was unafraid to try new things, always ready with a new fresh look and gave some pretty great hugs. He came into my life as a student and left as a colleague. To see his growth was validation of my own career and inspired others in similar ways. He was truly a wonderful person who loved his family, his friends and his awesome cat. He will be missed, but may we who knew him on an artistic platform perform with beauty, with passion and with vivid life in his honor. Vita brevis, ars longa. Life is short, but art is long.
Such a talented friend. Sean loved his family and friend, enjoyed performing. We have many fond memories of our time together, performing, hanging out at my house. He was my tattoo buddy, my fellow tenor, and someone I could always depend upon to have an opinion.
Sean was the best sight reader I have encountered in my 50 years of choral performances. May God be with his family.
He was truly an amazing man with so much talent. It’s heartbreaking to know that he is gone. His presence and talent will be missed by all. My condolences to the family of Sean. Rip sweet friend
