London community to honor memory of brave teen

Sean Sabulsky

(Posted May 17, 2024)

On May 19, the London community will honor the memory of Sean Sabulsky, a London teenager who passed away on May 12 following a four-year battle with cancer.

Sabulsky, 17, was a junior at London High School. He was diagnosed in middle school with Ewing sarcoma, a rare cancer that affects the body’s bones or soft tissue.

“Sean and his fight against cancer (#SeanStrong) were an inspiration to many in our district and community,” wrote Dr. Lou Kramer, London City Schools superintendent, in a message posted to the school district’s website on May 13.

The school district arranged for the services of additional counselors this past week to provide support to students and staff.

At the May 16 London city council meeting, Mayor Patrick Closser paid tribute to Sean.

“He was a great young man that had a heart of gold and brought love into every room that he walked into,” Closser said. “Every time I saw him, he’d come up and we would talk. He was always able to brighten my day and put a smile on my face. Sean will be missed by our community, but he will never be forgotten as he has touched so many lives.”

At approximately 2 p.m. on May 19, a procession will travel from Lynch Family Funeral Home, 124 E. High St., London, to London High School, 336 Elm St. For the procession, Sean’s family invites the public to line High and Elm streets between the funeral home and the London City Schools campus “to guide Sean home.”

Calling hours will take place at the high school from 3 to 6 p.m., followed by a funeral service officiated by Pastor Jody Pickett.
