Sean Daly, of Hull, died on March 22. He was 52. His warrior “Bear” spirit carried him through a decades-long battle with cancer.
Born in Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood, Sean was the beloved son of Arthur Daly and Helen (LaBreck) Daly of Hull. He was a 1985 graduate of Hull High School and was co-captain of the Hull varsity hockey team. He attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and later earned his juris doctorate degree from the New England School of Law.
Prior to entering the legal field, Sean was a member of the International Union of Elevator Constructors Local 4 in Boston. He was involved for many years with the YMCA Livestrong Program for cancer survivors and coached his children’s Weymouth Cal Ripkin League baseball teams.
Sean was an avid fan of all Boston sports teams, Jimmy Buffett, and Peter Mayer and had a zeal for life on or near the ocean – and for golden retrievers. The greatest joys in his life came from time spent with his children.
Sean was the husband of Nancy (Quirk) Daly and the devoted father of Shannon Daly and Christopher Daly, all of Weymouth. He was the beloved brother of Caryn Daly of Charlestown, R.I.; Suzanne Daly and her husband, Alexander Kupriyanov, of Glen Ridge, N.J.; and Andrea Wilson and her husband, Zachary Wilson, of Groton. He was also the loving uncle of Oscar, Nora, Andrew, Lucas, and Myles.
A Celebration of Life memorial service will be hosted in the Pyne Keohane Funeral Home, 21 Emerald St., Hingham, at a future time and date, which will be announced on the funeral home website.
