What can you say about a man who never thought about anything except helping others....
The world lost a man who can never be replaced.  Yesterday,  Saturday, September 23rd at approximately 4:00 p.m., Sean was killed in a tragic motorcycle accident  while traveling to a benefit event.   He was nearing the interchange for the 5 South and the 110 Freeway when the crash occurred with a semi-truck.   Sean was killed instantly.

Sean leaves behind a loving wife "Donna" and several children.  The family did not have life insurance and they need your help to pay for the funeral and living expenses.  

Sean's life was all about everyone else.  He is best known for his customized wheelchairs that have given countless people (especially children) the ability to move about much more freely and he would add special effects to the wheelchairs to make it very special.  Many times when a family could not afford to pay the regular costs, Sean would find a way to help them....even if it meant making next to nothing to build it.  What Sean would take with him was the expression on the face of the child when they first received it.  Currently, his wife is worried more about the 30 orders of wheelchairs that are pending and how she will tell the families that Sean is gone.  

He is also known for his customization of mini trucks and appeared in many magazines and events.  He was a part of West Coast Customs from 2004 - 2010.

Sean was one of the original innovators in the mini-truck world and in 2015, he was inducted into the Mini-Truck Hall of Fame:

Then there was the motorcycle club (Socal Bolt Riders) that Sean was involved with.  He was on his way to meet with his felllow riders when the accident occured and the group of these riders rode to the coroners office in Los Angeles to be there when his wife Donna arrived.

There is so much more I could say about this man, but I will leave the links to several sites he was involved with for further information.
Sean spent his life giving to others and now we are asking that if there is anything you can do to help this family pay for the funeral and living expenses, please...any amount will help.
