Sean McDermott, of Garnerville, passed away at home on December 21, 2017. He was 21.
Sean was born to Andrew and Janet (Ocasio) McDermott in Staten Island, NY. He was active in Haverstraw Little League, and then graduated from North Rockland High School in 2013. He was active in the Nerf Club in school, and he loved travel. He was a sweet, gentle person who always gave back to people and loved kids. Sean had a profoundly moral sense of justice and doing the right thing. He had a big heart and was very humble and righteous. He loved his dad's spaghetti sauce, and his entire family- especially his sister Kayla, whom he affectionately called "Peanut" and "Freedom Fighter,"- and (tastefully) making fun of his dad.
Sean is survived by his loving parents, his sister Kayla, his grandparents Barbara Bowling, Tomasa and Felix Ocasio, and many relatives and friends.
Sean's family will receive friends and relatives at T.J. MCGOWAN SONS FUNERAL HOME, 71 N. Central Highway, GARNERVILLE, on Tuesday, December 26, 2017 from 2-4 & 7-9 PM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated for Sean on Wednesday, December 27 at 10 AM at St. Gregory Barbarigo Church, Garnerville, with interment to follow at Mt. Repose Cemetery, Haverstraw.
