Sean Ross Fontenay

May 21, 1965 ~ January 8, 2018 (age 52)

It is with great sadness that the family of Sean Ross Fontenay announces Sean's passing  on Monday, January 8th at the age of 52 following a valiant battle with cancer.  Sean, beloved husband, father, uncle, and friend passed peacefully with his wife Spencer and adored children Madeleine and Thomas by his side. 

Originally from San Francisco, Sean attended Town School For Boys, The Branson School and put himself through Columbia University receiving his BA in Art History. His career started in New York City and eventually brought his family to California in 2001 where he was a real estate management consultant at Deloitte & Touche.
Sean will forever be lovingly remembered by his wife, children, family and friends. His way of doing things was to make things better, to be inclusive and make sure people's preferences were always considered.

Sean will be remembered for the joyful moments he created with his steady demeanor, love of history, art, and travel, his strength of thoughtfulness and character, quick sense of humor and love for and commitment to his family.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January
13, 2018 at 2pm at All Saints’ Episcopal Church.
