MARSHALL, Ill. - Our beloved Christopher Sean Diver, born Dec. 27, 1971, suddenly but peacefully departed this earth on Friday evening, April 7, 2017, at the home of his parents.
He was preceded in death by his father, David Ray Diver.
He is survived by his mother and stepfather, Amelia (Amy) and Charles Ladd; his two cherished daughters, Danielle Michelle Klayer and Daelynn Alisha Diver; and his sister, Alyson (Dan) Thompson. His passing also is mourned by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews; as well as special friend, Wanda Rodriguez.
Sean was blessed with good looks, a lovely smile, and a sensitive spirit. Like his father, he particularly loved deer and squirrel camp with his friends and family. He liked to have a good time, which he would acknowledge was at times to his detriment. On the other hand, he was not so quick to extol his many virtues. As a member of the Sheet Metals Workers Union Local 20, he was selected twice to represent the union in skilled competitions. His talent with a pen and pencil resulted in many pieces of artwork appreciated by both family and friends. He had a passion for excellence, was a craftsman skilled in many areas, and was able to construct almost anything. He loved music and would spend hours listening and contemplating its lyrics. Sean was not afraid to tackle difficult projects that required ingenuity and meticulous attention. But truly, his greatest attributes were his kindness, his sensitivity, and his genuinely compassionate spirit. He loved his family.
Life is a mystery, and this is one of them. It has been said that grief is a love word. In that case, Sean is deeply, deeply loved.
Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m CDT Tuesday, April 11, 2017, at Zion United Methodist Church, 20952 E. 1350 Road, Marshall. Services will immediately follow at the church. Contributions may be made to Lives Under Construction Boys Ranch in Missouri or Lighthouse Mission in Terre Haute, Ind. Online condolences are being accepted at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
