In memory of
Sean Macoon
January 29, 1973 - February 25, 2021 - Age 48

Sean Macoon (1973-2021)

Sean Rajesh Macoon passed away, at the age of 48 on February 25, 2021 in Medicine Hat, beloved son of the late Manu and Ruby Macoon. He leaves to cherish his memory her two sisters, Nadia Delanoy and Shamela (Dwight) Affleck and their children, Owen, and Cayden.

A viewing service will be offered via live streamed and in person (20 people maximum) from the Pattison Funeral Home on Tuesday, March 2nd from 1-3pm. A celebration of life will be held at a later date and will be communicated on the Pattison Funeral Home website.

On February 25th, the world lost one of the most courageous and full of life people, our dear brother, Sean Macoon. For a man in his late 40’s he had triumphed over much of life’s hardships. From a young boy, he was always supporting people of disabilities and helped bring awareness to challenges facing these groups. His life represented grit, perseverance, resilience, and a strong will. Although his life was cut short so suddenly, we are grateful for the time we had with him.

Our brother’s faith in Jesus and his commitment to First Assembly of God Church kept him strong and full of hope. He had an immense passion for music and loved to listen to old vinyl’s of BB King, Jeff Healey, and Stevie Wonder. Sean truly had a zest for anything instrumental and musical. He was a unique and dynamic individual that faced life head on.

With heavy hearts, we will miss you dearly, Sean.

I have known Sean since he was very young (1985 ish) , I have always admired his zeal for life. I was very blessed when given the opportunity to support him in his life. He was always very interested in music and had such a passion for creating music, he never had an attitude controlled by physical limitations. When we talked guitar , music recording etc, he had more passion than anyone I can think of on the subject ( “ Brandon , what do you think about fender bullet strings...”and we would talk for over an hour on the subject) . He will always be on my mind when it comes to remembering to appreciate a love for music. He was a role model for me , because his heart was with God and he stayed true to his passions. I will always remember the countless hours of discussions about living life and I look forward to the day we can continue in eternity. I am thankful and very blessed to have known him.

With Deepest Sympathy to Sean's family. His daily visits will be missed, he never passed by the ladies at Guest Services in the mall without his warm smile and his "Good Morning Ladies how are you doing today?" Weather he was needing help with his bags or requesting to use the phone he was a delight to visit with.

We are so very sorry for your loss Macoon family. My husband Kevin and I so appreciated Sean, he was always ready to pray for any need that a person may have! He was always asking how he could pray for ministries at First Assembly and was always willing to share what God had shown him concerning the everything he had been praying about. We will miss you Sean but I can't imagine your face as you met Jesus and got to see your Mom! Blessings and comfort to all.

I hope you get to enjoy all of your favorite foods up there, and I bet the bacon double cheeseburgers are awesome..... I will miss you my friend... but down the road, we will meet (and eat) together again.

I was very sad to hear of Sean’s passing. I first met Sean when I was working at a store in the mall, he would pop in weekly to see what was new and exciting for sale, and we would chat. I then had the opportunity to reconnect with him a few years later in a different capacity. And more recently in a completely different scope. I always admired the way Sean would not hesitate to advocate for himself and others. I loved his passion for music, and that was something we alway find common ground in. Rest Easy Sean, you will be missed.

I was so sorry to learn of Sean's passing. I've known him since he was a boy. Every time I'd see him, which was usually at the Mall, he was always so friendly, and it was fun catching up on everything. Heaven is rejoicing, but we will deeply Sean's presence here. There is comfort in knowing I will see him again some day, and he is united with my son, who Sean cared about so much.

So very sorry to hear about Sean’s passing. Our Mama Nadia Shagin loved Sean very much as she took care of him in the 90’s at Redi. She often prayed for him and asked God to heal him. He got to see her in heaven as she departed just 9 days earlier prior to Sean. To Sean’s sisters: May God comfort your hearts with His peace. We love you.

Message from Myrna Cooper March 03, 2021
I was so saddened when I read tonight of Sean’s passing. My family had a close connection with Sean. We picked him up and brought him to our home numerous times. We had 4 young children (1995/1986) and he adored them all. When our youngest daughter was born he held her and smothered her in kisses. He was such an asset to our family. My kids still speak of him fondly. I hadn’t seen him for years but saw him in the mall about 2 years ago and he remembered me and asked about my kids. Sending hugs to each of you and please know that Sean was a blessing to me and my family.
