There is a memorial account set up for Mieka and the baby now.

Mountain America Credit Union
Sean "Stanley" Leary Memorial Fund
P.O. Box 9001
West Jordan, UT 84084




This is far from my place, but as others closer to him are greaving, we as a community need to pull together. We have all been in awe of Sean Leary or as some know him as Stanley. An email for his sister today says that Sean was killed in or around Zion. I am in shock and disbelief. Please keep his spirit crushing by just giving thanks and kind words. No need to speculate , no need to argue, just a beautiful life cut too short and someone who has touched us all.

Godspeed Stanley

Damn. I still sing Coilers song "Stanley The Big Wall Hammer" all the time. Brutal loss of a really good man. Rest in peace buddy. See you out there.

Wow, so sad to hear. He was an inspiration to me. Quiet hardman of the valley, crushing it.

When I asked Sean if he wanted to an El Cap push early last month, he replied;

"Dude, hell yeah!! I'd be so psyched to go climb with ya! It's just fine tuning the timing to make it happen!"


R.I.P. my friend, you will continue to inspire myself, and many others for a very long while.

My condolences to his family, and the many people who also loved him.
