Sean Pearman

He was born in South Bend on Nov. 12, 1962.

After graduating from Clay High School and Indiana University, he moved to Virginia where he met and married his wife Anne (Seeley). Together they returned to South Bend, where he continued his career as a computer programmer/analyst with The Associates, which later became a part of Citi. He was still employed by Citi at the time of his death. In South Bend, Anne and Sean welcomed their children Suzanne, Loralee, and Stuart into the world, and together they filled their home with friends, who have known it as a place of much love, humor, and creativity.

Sean was a kind and gentle man who will be remembered for his thoughtfulness, wry sense of humor, prodigious memory, and love of music and everything tropical. He leaves behind his wife Anne and children Loralee and Stuart; his mother Marcella Pearman; his sister Marci, her husband Jim Daniel, and their children Rachel and Ryan; and his sister-in-law Brenda Pearman. He was preceded in death by his daughter Suzanne, father Dr. Floyd J. Pearman, and brother Floyd Pearman.
