Obituary for Sean Michael McDonald
Sean Michael McDonald, 30, of Curwensville, passed away Wednesday January 18, 2012 at the West Penn Hospital in Pittsburgh, after a lengthy illness.

 Sean got so much out of life in his thirty years and was an inspiration to all who knew him. He had an amazingly positive spirit and made the most of each day even through the toughest times. He was sweet and funny and loved to make people laugh. He had a strong faith in God and often quoted, 1 John 4:8 - God is love. Sean will be missed so much by so many.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather Brent Brown, his paternal step grandfather August “Beef” Hugney, his paternal Aunt Kathy McDonald and paternal Uncle Mark McDonald.
