Obituary of Sean Edward Deithorn

Sean Edward Deithorn, age 37, of Satellite Beach, FL passed away on Tuesday, July 28, 2020.


Our beloved “Seany D” was a graduate of Satellite High School, Class of 2001, and received his Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education at Eastern Florida State College.  He loved fishing with his Dad and surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding with his “bros”.


Sean was the youngest son of David and Susan (Wills) Deithorn.  He is survived by his sister, Catherine, her husband, Rob Gwinner and son, Bo; his brother, Erik, his wife Sue, and sons, Drake and Lars); and his sister, Heather and her husband, Ben Bruce. 


Best remembered for his warm smile, fun-loving personality and sense of humor, Sean cared more about the happiness of his loved ones around him than his own.  He loved children, especially his nephews, Lars and Bo.  As a young child, he would help his sister Heather when she would babysit, just so he could play with the kids.  He also spent a wonderful season teaching snowboarding to children in Breckenridge, Colorado where he earned many accolades from both parents and the kids. 


As a member of the Florida Flyrod Club since 1995, Sean won Mr. Big Bass in 1998 catching a 7 lb. 13 oz. bass - a record that stands to this day.  He also won Mr. Bass in 1998 catching the most bass in the club.  He was a gifted fly fisherman who looked like an artist out on the water.


He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
