It was great getting to know Sebastian over this past year. He had great stories of the old days and was a very genuine person to talk with. He will absolutely be missed! “Stai tranquillo amico mio!”

God bless you Benny! We had so much fun together during our high school days. Your Mom and Dad always treated me and my brother Bill as one of their own. You are home now; rest easy my friend!!

You may have only been a co-worker for a brief time but you became a close friend in that brief time. We had a very unique friendship that consisted of back and forth hackling. You could dish it out pretty good but I think I kept you in your place. I put a piece of chocolate on your desk. Go chase the big bucks up in Heaven and keep an eye on all of us down here. You know this crazy crew could always use a few guardian angels.

Rest with God Sebastian. Your laughter, kind heart, funny stories, Italian treats, and encouraging words will truly be missed around the office. May your family and loved ones be comforted during this time.

I had some great talks with Sebastian working at Hermitage House, being the Chaplain there, he always had my back and supported my Chapel services. We had many talks about our Lord and Savior and I know that he is in Gods Kingdom! You will be missed my friend, until we meet again. Peace!
