In Loving Memory of Sean Robert Pina Howard
Sean Robert Pina Howard, age 23, was born on March 31st, 2000, and peacefully departed from this world on July 17, 2023, after a valiant 3.5-year battle against Synovial Sarcoma Cancer.
Sean’s vibrant spirit and ability to boldly express his love to others touched the hearts of all who knew him. Sean had a passion for music that he inherited from his father and displayed his mother’s gentleness when spending time with his cherished dogs, Bella, Frank and Bernie. Sean expressed his creative nature through complex Lego creations and his impressive array of vintage sneakers was a testament to his love for style and uniqueness. Sean always made time for those he loved, and nothing pleased him more than to spend an evening at a baseball game with family.
In the face of adversity, Sean displayed immense resilience. Surrounded by the unwavering support of his parents Rob and Sandy Howard, his brother Steven Howard, his sister-in-law McKenna Howard, and his nephew Renick, Sean faced his greatest challenge with a grace and maturity that was truly inspiring. Sean will be dearly missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins, chosen family and a multitude of friends, all of whom will forever remember Sean for his genuine kindness and infectious smile.
Sean was preceded in death by his loving grandparents; A. Duane Howard, Pat Shanahan, and Mariana and Aurelio Pina, who undoubtedly welcomed him in Heaven with open arms.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that you honor Sean’s courageous battle by considering a donation to cancer research. Your contribution will hold profound significance in the fight against Synovial Sarcoma Cancer and may offer hope to others facing similar challenges. Together, let us support the advancement of medical science and strive for a future free from the pain of losing other extraordinary souls like Sean’s.
As we bid farewell to Sean, let us remember the joy he brought into our lives and cherish the precious memories and unforgettable moments we shared. May his legacy of passion, courage, and love for life continue to inspire and uplift us all.
Rest in peace, dear Sean. Your light will forever shine in our hearts, as a beacon of love and inspiration.
