Sean Patrick Hanagan, 26

HAVERHILL — Sean P. Hanagan, 26, of Haverhill, died unexpectedly on Saturday, March 30, 2013, at his home after struggling with drug addiction for many years.

Born in Haverhill, he was the son of William P. and Pamela (Beauregard) Hanagan. Raised in the Bradford section of Haverhill, he attended public school and was a graduate of Haverhill High School, class of 2004.

Sean was employed with the Brandolini Construction Company in Haverhill as a skilled carpenter. He was blessed with great natural talent. Whatever he put his mind to; he did it, and did it well. He enjoyed snowboarding, fishing, hiking, writing poetry and music. Above all he cherished his time spent with his son, Brody.

He leaves his son, Brody W. Hanagan-Angelini of Newton, N.H.; parents, William P. and Pamela Hanagan of Bradford; a brother, Adam R. Hanagan and his wife, Danielle, of Haverhill; a niece, Mariah D. Hanagan; grandparents, Richard E. and Joanne L. Beauregard of Haverhill, and Diane (Archetti) and Arthur Foss of Atkinson, N.H.; and several loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends, all of whom will miss him dearly.

Many people touched and supported Sean throughout his battle with addiction, including, but not limited to, Vinnie Brandolini, Michael Harris, Daniel Bowman, and loving family members and friends.

He was predeceased by his grandfather, Richard E. “Zeke” Hanagan this past January.
