Obituary of Sean Paul Cook
Sean Paul Cook, age 28, passed away June 22, 2022.
Sean was born July 9, 1993 in Aiken, SC to James Milton Cook and Michele Hallford Shackford. He was a life-long resident of Aiken. He loved Hunting Island in South Carolina, video games, music, and festivals. He was captivated with the cosmos and galaxies of our universe. He had love and compassion for animals and little children were drawn to him. He was extremely kind and enjoyed spending precious time with his friends.
Sean was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Patricia and Paul Cook; maternal step-grandmother, Barbara Hallford; step-paternal grandmother, Rosalyn Shackford.
Survivors include his mother and step-father, Michele and David Shackford; his father, James Milton Cook; two sisters, Kristen Cook and Megan Cook; a brother, Taylor Foster (Filipa); maternal grandparents, Bernice and Bobby Miller and Bob Hallford; and his best friend, Tyler Carnahan.
The Hebrew origin and meaning of the name Sean (Yohanan), translates to “God is Gracious”. Biblically this means he is compassionate, he is a treasure, he delights in you, regardless of your status or behavior. In Proverbs 3:22, God’s wisdom is compared to a necklace and is called “an ornament of khen,” usually translated as “an ornament of Grace.” Think about it. Wearing a necklace brings delight to those who wear it and to those who see it worn. The meaning of Grace is asking you to think of God’s wisdom like that necklace. Sean is that necklace.
