Sean suffered a heart attack in late May of this year and was currently on a what he referred to as a "new ticker list." Sean had mentioned the wait could be as long as two years. Tragically for Tucson, a higher power did not grant him that kind of timetable.
Every week, year after year, Sean selflessly poured his heart out behind the tables to make thousands of friends and complete strangers smile. That's what we should all remember Sean Collins for, and maybe carry a little of that spirit this weekend when we're out and about.
We will post details regarding services when Sean's family has made arrangements. If you have photos or memories of Sean you would like to share, please send them to Jessica Perez at firstname.lastname@example.org
