Sean Patrick O’Brien

OCEAN CITY — Sean Patrick O’Brien, 39, of Ocean City, died suddenly on Feb. 4, 2018.

Obits C OBrien

Sean Patrick O’Brien

Sean was born in Baltimore on April 5, 1978, and grew up in Severna Park. A member of Severna Park High School’s class of 1996, he later attended Anne Arundel Community College. A plumber by trade, he currently worked for Ocean View Plumbing.

Sean was soulful, thoughtful, creative, and passionate in his pursuits. He loved the ocean, spending most of his childhood summers in Ocean City and Bethany Beach, finally settling in those beach communities as an adult. An avid surfer, he traveled to surfing destinations as often as he could, including Costa Rica and Puerto Rico. Given his Puerto Rican heritage, he especially cherished time spent on the island with his best surfing buddy, his brother Mark. An amateur photographer, Sean’s deeply spiritual side realized expression through his photography, especially when he captured sunsets, coastal horizons and landscapes, and other nature settings. Sean drew inspiration from music, relishing the communion and joyful release of concerts. A confirmed Deadhead who traveled widely to catch Dead and Company on tour, he also deeply appreciated the lyrical poetry and prophetic nature of Bob Dylan’s works. His great affinity for language arts was revealed through his gifted writing as well as the pleasure and opportunity for growth he found in reading. A lifelong animal lover, Sean almost always had a dog companion. He was especially close to his final canine soulmate, Buddy.

A devoted son and brother, Sean is survived by his mother, Suzanne Reese O’Brien of Ocean View, Del., and his brother, Mark Edward O’Brien of Annapolis. His grandfather, Edward A. O’Brien of Chesapeake Beach, and grandmother, Anne O. Kennedy of Bridgeville, Del., also survive him. He was predeceased by his father, John Patrick O’Brien, in 2014. His grandparents, Luther and Leona Reese, also predeceased him. A true family man, he leaves behind his stepdaughters Madyson and Cydney, whom he adored, in addition to many aunts, uncles, and cousins. All who had the honor of being loved by Sean, an unfailingly kind and thoughtful man, will deeply miss him.

Friends and family may visit from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018 at Barranco & Sons, P.A. Severna Park Funeral Home, 495 Ritchie Hwy, in Severna Park. A memorial service will be held at the funeral home immediately after visitation hours.
