On Tuesday, September 12, 2017, surrounded by love, Sean Stuart went to his eternal resting place at the age of 42.
He is survived by his loving mother and stepfather, Teresa and Ron Panetta; father, George Wayne Stuart; loving fiancée, Robin Tidwell; brothers, Nick (Breanne) and Ryan (Ewa); nephew and nieces, Joseph, Grace, and Taytum; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He is predeceased by his beloved grandparents, Raymond and Barbara Hinz, George and Dorothy Piggush.
Sean was born June 5, 1975 in Lansing, to Teresa and Wayne Stuart. He graduated from Lansing Catholic Central where he made lifelong friends and memories. A born athlete, he played football, basketball and track and continued his love of sports into adulthood. He was an avid retro gamer in youth and a movie buff until the very end. A true and dedicated Spartan, Sean never missed an opportunity to cheer on the Green and White, always seen sporting his favorite team colors. A dedicated colleague, he spent many years working at Flap Jack as a manager where he continued to make lifelong friends.
Sean will forever be remembered for his giving and loving heart, a trait he inherited from his beloved grandfather Raymond Hinz. His unconditional love for his family and friends was unmatched. He gave never asking for anything in return and was often the first to help a friend in need. He loved celebrating holidays with his large extended family and enjoyed the simple things in life.
During his later years, he found the one, a loving and supportive friend whom became his fiancée, Robin Tidwell. They shared many wonderful memories together over the course of five years. Sean gave in death as he gave in life; he was a Gift of Life donor. Because of his generous donations, he will provide sight for one person, two newborns will receive his heart valves, and his skin and tissue will help up to 75 more people. Gone but never forgotten, a life well-lived and well loved, he will continue in the memories of others.
A Memorial Mass will be held Tuesday, September 19, 2017, 11:00 a.m., St. John Church and Student Center, 327 MAC, East Lansing, with Fr. Ryan Riley officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church. Interment at St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery, Lansing.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Gift of Life Foundation, 3861 Research Park Dr., Ann Arbor, MI 48108-2217, will honor Sean's memory.
The family is being served by Gorsline Runciman Funeral Homes, East Chapel. On line condolences may be made at
