I had the benefit of working for “John” Maguire in the Newark, NJ Shell Retail office in the early 70’s. After retiring myself almost 30 years later, I can attest that he was a great boss and wonderful human. I have him to thank for setting me on a wise course for my own career through his insight, sound judgement and guidance. In the immortal words of Galileo, “If I have seen further it was because I sat on the shoulder of giants.” John was just that. Mary, Sue and I are so sorry for your loss. I regret allowing time to pass without reconnecting for so many years. May God bless John and you.
I just saw Sean’s obituary on the Shell Alumni Facebook page. So sad to hear. Sean joined us on several of our golf trips and great fun to be around. My condolences to Mary and the family.
Was a neighbor and golfed with Sean many times. Always had fun golfing with Sean as I watched him stalk his next shot.
Sean was a good friend and golf partner. We enjoyed our conversations about Ireland. I am out of the country so sorry to miss the service.
Sean was a beloved friend to so many of us!
