Condolence: I read with sadness of the passing of Mr. Briggs,as I knew him as the principal of my boys' (Neil and Steven) school back in Burlington many years ago.He always had a cheerful smile on his face and a warm greeting when he saw you in the school. Thinking of you all at this time. Cherish the memories as at the end that is all we have to honour the loved one.
Condolence: Although it has been many years since our paths crossed at St. Vincent's and St. Mark's, I remember Sean as a kind and faithful man who cared about doing the right thing. My sincere condolences to Danny and Siobhan, and your families.
Condolence: I first met Sean when I shared a hospital room with Darlene in 1979 when our respective daughters were born. After that when I would see Sean at Principal meetings, we would always catch up on how our daughters were doing, He was such a caring father and so proud of his children’s achievements. Then when Darlene accepted the position of SERT at St. Dominic School with me we deepened our friendship which continued after our retirements. Sean and Darlene leave the world a better place for everyone who had the privilege of knowing them.
Condolence: What an incredible blessing it has been to have worked with Sean as my principal, mentor and friend for over twenty years. Sean was ' the wind beneath my wings' for many of us as the principal of Holy Family Catholic Elementary School in Oakville. Sean was a gifted listener who taught us the power of quiet attention to the most vulnerable among us. Sean's humility and graciousness in the face of adversity was a model for all each and every day.
Having been blessed to work with both Sean and his amazing wife, Darlene, I can only imagine that heaven is richer this Christmas season. God bless you both, you will be greatly missed.
Condolence: Dan, Sherry and Siobhan -- I was very sad to read in the paper that your Dad had passed away. I really enjoyed both your Mom and Dad. I am sure this is a sad shock for the girls. Please take delight in the innate niceness that was your Dad. I am here at our Retirement Residence down the street from the church. I will have Mass for your Dad tomorrow and I will continue to pray for you in the days to come. Advent is HOPE. You guys have much to ho0e for. Fr. Jim, CSC
Condolence: Dan and Siobhan My thoughts and prayers are with you for your dad. We worked together at St. Mark in Burlington. Sean always made special needs children a priority. He was a credit to his profession in his role as principal. I am so very sorry to hear this sad news. Joanne Parisi
Condolence: We are so sorry to learn of Sean’s recent passing! We taught with Sean when he first arrived in Milton in 1968. He used to babysit our kids in the evenings. He was always pleasant and had an infectious smile. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends. His loving wife, Darlene will be waiting to welcome him with open arms. With sincere sympathy, Brian and Pat Fichaud
