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.

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.
