Sean Patrick Clarkin

Sean Patrick Clarkin, 28, was called home unexpectedly May 24, 2021 in Wanchese, NC. Sean was born July 8, 1992 and raised on the Outer Banks.

During his working years, Sean was a professional fisherman, but he was a natural waterman from the moment of his birth. Sean was known most for his charismatic humor and his beautiful smile. When he was off the water, Sean was enjoying all the outdoors had to offer, including hunting, fishing, biking, swimming and beach-bumming. He was also a standout athlete at First Flight High School where he excelled in football and lacrosse especially. Most of all, Sean was a son of Christ. He was a cherished son of his parents who give all the glory to God for the gift of their son’s birth and life.

Sean Clarkin is survived by his mother, Teresa Clarkin of Kitty Hawk, NC; his father, Michael Clarkin (Kathy) of Nags Head, NC; his brother, John Michael Clarkin also of Nags Head, his grandmother, Edna Dixon Blowe of Richmond, VA; his four uncles, Pat Clark, Greg Blowe, Danny Blowe, and Ricky Blowe; one aunt, Janie Johnson; a host of cousins, and extended family members, and a large circle of friends. Also surviving is Sean’s companion, Abby Tillett of Wanchese, NC. Sean was preceded in death by his half-brother, Gabriel Clark.

The family has planned Sean’s celebration of life for Tuesday, June 15, 2021 at 1 p.m. at Liberty Christian Fellowship. Pastor Scott Hobbs and Reverend Charles Gill will lead the service. In lieu of flowers, the family gratefully suggests memorial donations to CROSSROADS via crossroadsobx@gmail.com.

Expressions of condolence are welcome at www.gallopfuneralservices.com. Gallop Funeral Services, Inc. was entrusted with arrangements.
