He loved the mountains of Colorado and the woods of Kansas, where he enjoyed springtime mushroom hunts, camping with family and friends, and fishing. He was an aspiring artist, and a well-known member of the urban art community. Sean will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

Survivors include his parents, and sisters Kaitlyn Dixon and Bailey Dixon.

The family will greet friends from 5-6 p.m. prior to the service on Saturday at Warren McElwain Mortuary.

    Thanks for being a momentary friend when we were young kids. You provided brief warmth when i wasn’t able to feel much of anything. If it wasn’t for you i wouldn’t have been into aliens and predators
