Obituary of Sean Patrick Hanlon
Sean Patrick Hanlon of Conshohocken, made his journey Home on August 24th. He is survived by his parents, Brian and Kerri (Fischler) Hanlon, his siblings Kyra and Connor, and paternal grandparents Mark and Mary Hanlon. He was cherished by his many Aunts, Uncles and cousins and his Godmother, Amy Rafferty. His maternal grandparents, Gerald and Maureen Fischler and Godfather, A.J. O'Brien greeted him in Heaven with open arms.
While his time here was short, his impact was tremendous. Sean's engaging personality and huge smile lit up Conshohocken and many communities, including the HMS School for Children with Cerebral Palsy, St. Philip Neri Parish and Yoga Home. He loved music and art and outdoor adventures – hiking, biking, kayaking, yoga, skiing and more. Sean was blessed to have an amazing extended family that supported him on annual camping trips, making adventures possible. He and his family focused on his ability, rather than disability, to hike the Grand Canyon and the Cliffs of Moher, wade the Zion Narrows, ski Tremblant and more. He represented HMS School in accepting awards from the United Nations, New York International Film Festival and at the Mid-Atlantic Emmy Awards in the 2015 film "On the Other Side of the Fence." But perhaps his greatest joy was simply being present for others.
