Sean Kane

February 24, 1975 — May 16, 2021


Sean Higgins Kane, 46, passed away on Sunday May 16, 2021 surrounded by his family. Born and raised in Queens, NY, Sean embodied and cherished his NY roots all throughout his life. A proud graduate of Archbishop Malloy High School and member of the Sun and Surf Beach Club of Atlantic Beach, Sean valued and maintained the many connections and friendships made during his formative years.

As an adult, Sean migrated to Delaware County, PA to start a family with the love of his life, Nicole. Once there, Sean quickly adopted the “Delco” lifestyle and developed a love for the Jersey Shore and Wawa Iced Tea. He enjoyed many days at the Briarcliffe Pool, where he was known as “Mr. Briarcliffe” and at the shore, which to him, was North Wildwood and Mack’s Pizza.

More recently, Sean made the move to Kennett Square where he bought a dream home for his family and enough land for his beloved Labradoodles, Georgie and Pip, to run. With his move to Chesco, Sean became an avid golfer and introduced the Kennett Square golf scene to the Sean Kane brand of country club etiquette. His days spent on the farm in Kennett Square were some of the most peaceful of his life.

Sean had a passion for living and was joy personified. His laughter and personality were larger than life and impacted everyone with whom he came in contact. One of his many mantras in life was “Why not?” He would try anything, except for vegetables, at least once. He was most at ease when he was surrounded by those he loved, listening to his enormous playlist, and soaking in some sun.

Sean is survived by his wife, Nicole, his three children Dominic (Melissa), Layla, Gracie, a granddaughter due in August of this year, and Father-in-law Frank Lomonaco (Robin.) Sean is predeceased by his mother Maureen Kane and is survived by his father, Donald Kane, and two sisters Kristen (Steve) and Megan (Dennis). Sean is also survived by many relatives and friends that he chose as family. His longtime commitment and kinship with the Accarino Family, Mulato Family, the McKaneloschmidti clan, KSQ Wreckreation, and his Legendary Logistics family cannot be overstated.

A memorial service is planned for Sean on Wednesday, May 26th at Willowdale Chapel, 675 Unionville Rd (Corner of Rt 82 and 926) Kennett Square, PA 19348.  Visitation will take place from 10am until 12 Noon, with a memorial service from 12 Noon until 1pm.  A celebration of Sean’s life will follow at the Penn Oaks Country Club.  Attendees are being asked to wear attire befitting Sean’s lifestyle, relaxed, colorful, and collars popped. Those planning on attending the luncheon are being asked to respond to an eVite here..

In lieu of flowers, Sean’s family is simply asking people to manifest his generosity and “pay it forward.”  Arrangements are by Grieco Funeral Home & Crematory (1800-FUNERAL)
