Seamus Culligan Death – Obituary: Seamus was born in Galway, Ireland. He moved to America to better his education and met his soulmate Cyndie (nee Preskar). The two were inseparable since day one, shortly after they were married and he quickly pursued his life’s ambition to be a firefighter paramedic. During school, he was a volunteer firefighter for Thompson fire department and also helped with the recovery efforts on September 11th.
Soon after, he was hired as a full-time member of the Mentor and Willoughby fire departments, where he also served on the Lake County Hazardous Intervention Team.
Seamus will always be remembered as a man who was highly dedicated to his wife and children. He was such a strong man who never gave up, never told a lie, was always there for a friend in need, and had a great sense of humour. He would express himself with raw sarcasm which would normally make someone take offense, but with Seamus, it would only make them laugh, and it was accepted.
His love of music brought joy and oftentimes spontaneous laughter to his family when watching his goofy dances in the kitchen late at night or his random beatboxing sessions.
He was quick to respond to anyone in need, whether that be mowing someone’s grass, snow blowing their driveway, or cutting a fallen tree. Anywhere he saw a need, he just jumped in and took care of it without being asked.
People have said they wanted to lend him tools and machinery because he returned it cleaner than when he borrowed it, that’s just the type of guy he was.
When you met Seamus you knew that he was genuinely interested in you as he would pay attention to what you had to say.
If you knew Seamus you knew that he beat to a different drum and that drum was in his head, always coming out of his hands and feet tapping away. This is why he played in an Irish Pipes and Drum band.
Seamus Culligan is survived by his Proverbs 31 wife, “…she looks to the future with confidence,” and his three children who loved him dearly, Emily, Tadhg, and Gavin, cherished son of Jim and Norma Culligan, fond brother to Evelyn and Laura Culligan, Joseph and Nicholas Preskar, beloved Uncle to Darcy and Alex Dugan and Ellie Culligan, and in-laws Joe and Terri Preskar and Nick (deceased) and Kathy Oriti.
Seamus was the bravest of all warriors!!
In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that contributions be made to their children’s education.
Calling hours will be held Friday February 25th from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Brickman Bros. Funeral Home: 37433 Euclid Avenue, Willoughby, Ohio 44094.
