Read more about the life story of Sean and share your memory.
The sun rose for Sean Daniel Smith on January 29, 1967, in New York City and unexpectedly set while in his Atlantic City, New Jersey home in May 2023.
The only child of his mother, Mrs. Cordelia Ransom, and father, Mr. Elwood A. Smith, Sean began his spiritual life as an infant in the Catholic Church. His parent's move to Pennsylvania placed Sean closer to more family and to begin his education in the Pittsburgh Public Schools. Taking advantage of a private school opportunity, he attended and graduated from the Oakland School of Shadyside in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Sean attended the Community College of Allegheny County until his passion for driving could no longer be subdued. His quest for traveling the road began with his entering and completing the training at the MTA Center in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. As a licensed truck driver, he facilitated many deliveries of goods that were needed to sustain businesses and meet the needs of communities.
Sean’s love for driving became a bit more exclusive as the size of the truck got smaller and more stylish when he accepted a position as a courier; delivering important documents to law offices in downtown Pittsburgh as well as the business offices of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Steelers, and Penguins.
Seeking greater work opportunities, Sean moved to and lived in Silver Springs, Maryland for a time. Finally settling in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Sean worked again in positions that allowed him to enjoy driving.
Many will miss Sean's wide smile and his ability to make you laugh. He loved a good joke and loved to play, sometimes even pulling a prank on family and friends. Sean was loving, personable, and enjoyed the outdoors. As a young boy, he enjoyed camp, especially swimming. He spent those days with his cousins all of who were inseparable, Mrs. Taris Earnest and Mrs. Jacqueline Neal.
Sean was a bright light whose now dimmed shine leaves a void in the hearts of his family and friends.
Left to cherish his memory are his parents: Mrs. Cordellia Ransom and Mr. Elwood A. Smith, sons, Sean Smith, Jr., Isaiah Smith, and Christian Smith, daughter, Gabrielle S. Smith, Step Sister Shanon (Smith) Dillard, Step Brother Erin A. Smith. Aunts, Mrs. Merla Covington, Godmother, Dr. Christine White- Taylor, and a host of other relatives and friends.
