Sean M. Neary


September 8, 1962 ~ January 7, 2019

Sean M. Neary, 56, of Norwalk, CT, passed away on Monday, January 7, 2019. He was the loving husband of Caressa Santella Neary.

Born in Bridgeport, CT on September 8, 1962, he was the loving son of the late Hugh M. and Ann (McGarry) Neary. He grew up in Fairfield, CT and was a graduate of Roger Ludlowe High School. Sean was a talented carpenter who took pride in his work. He loved to play his guitar, golf with his buddies, and was an avid Giants and Mets fan. He was often seen around town driving his beloved 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88. Sean cherished his childhood summers at Snug Harbor on Fairfield Beach. His greatest joy was spending time at home with his family and having his Chihuahua Angel by his side. He was a devoted husband and a loyal friend who cared about others. Sean had the biggest heart, was truly a phenomenal person, was always smiling, and he will be deeply missed. The collective reaction to his loss from all who knew and loved Sean is that he was one of the good guys! He was predeceased by his father-in-law Arthur A. Santella of Norwalk. He is survived by his wife Caressa, stepson Robert A. Santella, stepson Nate Sember, mother-in-law Nancy Morton Santella, sister-in-law Nancy Scimeca, brother-in-law Peter Scimeca, and nephews Albert and James Scimeca. He is also survived by ten siblings including Maureen Foster, Eileen Boyle, Kathleen Maxham, Bridget Sarosky, Shelagh Kuhsel, Siobhan Lombardi, Brian, Hugh, Patrick, and Michael Neary, his Aunt Kathleen Howard of Fairfield, as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Friends and family may call on Sunday, January 13, 2 to 5 pm, at Collins Funeral Home, 92 East Avenue Norwalk, CT. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, January 14, 10:00 a.m., at St. Thomas the Apostle Church, 203 East Avenue Norwalk, CT.
