Sean Michael Bulliman, age 34, passed away in Covington, Washington on February 5, 2019.

Sean was born in Bellevue, Washington on April 12, 1984. Sean always had a smile for everyone he encountered. He believed that humor was the way to connect to people and ease any tense situation. He could quote any line from Chris Farley, Will Ferrell, or Family Guy. Always charismatic and funny, he loved making people laugh. He was passionate about football (the real one, aka soccer) since the day his dad coached his little league team. A knee injury never stopped him from playing with friends on the pitch or with his nephews in the yard. Over the years his loyalty grew for Manchester City and he would not hesitate to tell you about their rise to the number one standing in the Premier League. We will miss his drumming and constant rhythmic beats. This creative outlet was his go-to whether he was feeling good, frustrated, or mad. Regardless his mood, it was easy to see how much he loved making music with his drums.

He may have been a private person and quiet about his emotions, but his mental illness and addiction never defined who he was, only shaped the way he lived. He chose to end his life on a snowy Tuesday in February, but now we know he is no longer tormented by the storm that was in his head.

Sean is survived by his parents: Ray and Roxanne Bulliman; sister: Allison, her husband Paul and their two sons.
