He retired from teaching after 31 years in 2011. He taught math, history and special education as well as coached several sports. He was a bluegrass musician and loved to play his guitar.

He is survived by his wife of twenty years, Leigh Anne Seay; children, Mary (Patrick) Mill of Trussville, William Kennard and Michael Seay, both of Chatom; granddaughters, Dani and Kinsley; brother, Samuel B (Sheryl) Seay of Homer, LA, sister, Sara (Larry) Friedrich of Mt. Pleasant, SC; six nieces and nephews and several great-nieces and nephews.
A private family service will be conducted at a later date at the Quinnelly Family Cemetery where his remains will be interred. A musical celebration of his life will be conducted in the near future for his friends and loved ones to remember him in the way he was most often seen. A time and location have not yet been determined.

Sean was a bluegrass purist and would tell you in a heartbeat that the original Will the Circle Be Unbroken album was the best! LOL He was also a fine musician and community minded man. RIP Hope they had your left handed harp ready when you got to Heaven.

We knew Shawn from many years ago when he was a teacher and basketball coach at SCA. We renewed our friendship for the time our grandsons attended MHS. our sympathies go to his family.

We were so sorry to hear of Shawn's passing. We enjoyed his music at the Fifddler's Convention for many, many years in Frankville, AL We saw him last there this year. He and his great music will surely be missed by all who knew  and loved him. Praying for his wife, boys and families. Gene & Libby Loper

Shawn was a constant at our house for Alabama games when my Daddy was alive. He was one’of my Dad’s best friends. We loved Shawn and will cherish the memories!
