Sean James O’Shea

Sean James O’Shea passed away suddenly at his Durham, NC home, on April 12, 2019.

The son of Daniel and Claire O’Shea of Milton, MA, he was brother to Brenda, Brian, Sheila and Patrick.  Sean graduated Milton High School, attained a B.S. degree in Economics at University of Massachusetts, and a Master of Library Science from the University of South Florida.  He created a consumer economics program “Dollars and sense”, which was well received by the Durham County library system.

An avid sports fan, his heart was broken when the ball went through Buckner’s legs.  He loved the Celtics and enjoyed being a Patriots fan while living in the South.  Sean had a passion for music, particular jazz and blues, and loved ancient Irish folklore.  He had a curious mind, was an avid researcher and a talented writer.

He will be missed by his family, including numerous cousins, nieces and nephews, as well as his co-workers at the Centre for Homeownership in Hillsboro, NC.

A graveside service will be held at Milton Cemetery, 211 Centre Street, Milton, May 4 at 11:30 AM. Please meet at the main gate.
