Sean Moylan

July 22, 2020


Sean O’Donnell Moylan of Newport, RI, passed away on July 22, 2020, following a sudden and fatal heart attack. He was the loving son of Daniel E. Moylan of Lakewood Ranch, FL and Sharon O. Moylan of Smithfield, RI and the brother of Bronwyn A. Dannenfelser. He also leaves his loving godmother, Jennifer M. O’Donnell of North Providence, RI and his partner Alia Younes of Newport, RI as well as numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Those who knew Sean described him as exceedingly bright with a thirst for knowledge; passionate about animals and those less fortunate; loyal to family and friends; and a lifetime learner and student of any information he could get his hands on. For all willing to engage, he would hold court on any topic of interest, and he was uncompromising when it came to justice and fairness. His quick wit and generosity of spirit which came directly from his heart touched many lives.

Sean was a man of innumerable talents, an eloquent writer, excellent skier, musician and chef - an all-around renaissance man. He will be sadly missed and always with us in spirit.

God speed Sean!

Due to Covid 19 protocols burial will be private and a celebration of life will be scheduled at a future date.​​Donations in Sean’s name may be made to the Rhode Island SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), 186 Amaral Street, Riverside, RI 02915
