SALEM – Sean Christopher Pagan, 47, was called home early on the morning of Jan. 8, 2019. Sean bravely fought an aggressive cancer for nearly four years.

He is survived by his wife, Shannon (Reardon) Pagan ; his adoring youngest daughter, Aleeya, as well as his two adult children, Christopher and Samantha; his mother, Marie Torres; his sisters, Danille Torres and DeAnna Matzye (Mark); his brother, Michael (Sheri); as well as multiple nieces and nephews; and one grandchild, Gianna.

Sean was preceded by his father, Louis Pagan.

Sean graduated from Austintown Fitch High School in 1989.

He served in the U.S. Navy from 1989 to 1993, where he earned the National Defense Service Medal, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal and the Navy and Marine Corps Overseas Service Ribbon. Sean attended the Pittsburgh Culinary School in 1993 and loved to cook. He also loved the Dallas Cowboys, listening to music and spending time with his family. Sean will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved him. May he rest in eternal peace.

A memorial service will be officiated by his Pastor Michael Hileman of the Connecting Life Church. The service will be held at Crossroad Ministries Church, 1909 North Ellsworth Ave. in Salem, at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 13, 2019.

Military Honors will be conducted prior to the memorial service.

Peace be with you!

“We never know His plan. But we love and trust in Him all the same. I heard so many beautiful things about Sean and his deep love for his family. I watched and listened through this looking glass we call Facebook. He fought a courageous battle but when God wants an Angel in Heaven He calls to them and they must go. God Bless you and your daughter and anyone else feeling the pain of loss. May knowing that he is with Our Lord and Savior give you strength and comfort to go on until we see him again. So long for now Sean and save me a seat in The Kingdom!”
