Sean Thomas Henson, age 30, passed away at home in Lakewood, Colorado on February 2, 2024. He was born in Fort Worth, Texas on September 5, 1993. Sean was a loving son, caring brother, and dear friend. He lived in Texas for a short time, moving to Utah when he was two then Louisville, Colorado after his sixth birthday. He attended Fireside Elementary, ultimately graduating from Monarch High School a year early. He was a devoted student of various genres and styles of music, art, and computer gaming. He excelled at the piano at an early age.
Sean attended the University of Colorado Denver before enrolling in the Art Institute where his creativity really found fertile ground. Interior design became his passion, and he found a home with the West Elm organization designing and building store displays and windows as well as overall store management. He was tasked with opening new stores in several cities around the country. He lived for a while in Kansas City, New York City, and Pennsylvania before reluctantly moving back home because of his Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) diagnosis. His attitude throughout this journey was almost always upbeat and accepting of its finality.
Sean is survived by his brother Kyle, parents Wade and Lacy, several aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends from all parts of the globe. Sean’s bright light and beautiful smile will be forever in our hearts.
