Timothy "Sean" Byers

May 18, 1990 — November 28, 2022

Sean was known far and wide as a passionate prayer warrior and a trusted friend. Whether from his post as a Walmart greeter or simply just around town, Sean would commonly be seen praying with people, sharing his faith, and sharing their burdens. Sean regarded everyone he met as a child of God and he loved every person who crossed his path unconditionally. His impact on the community is immeasurable and his legacy of faithful service to his Lord will long out-last his short time on earth.
