Obituary for Sean A. Tieben

FORT WRIGHT – Sean A. Tieben, 54 years of age, passed away after a hard-fought battle with ALS on February 10, 2021. Sean was born in Galion, Ohio to his mother Phyllis Crase McKinney and his late father, Bruce Tieben. He was also preceded in death by his step-father David McKinney. He is survived by his wife of 18 years, Susan Dewiel Tieben; his daughter, Makailee; his step-daughter, Sarah; his grandchildren, Silas and Shiloh; and brothers, Shannon (Bridget) and Shane. Sean will be remembered for his love of The Ohio State football, good craft beer, and as a grill and smoke master. He was an excellent cook who loved sharing his creations with his wife, family, and neighbors. He always had a project in process at his house or a neighbor’s house since he had the ability to fix almost anything. He wasn’t always a sweetheart but he was such a good guy. Sean’s legacy will live on every time there is a party, or a drink to be made. A celebration of Sean’s life will take place in the form of a party at the home he created at a later date. Memorial contributions in Sean’s name are suggested to The ALS Association, Central & Southern Ohio Chapter, 1170 Old Henderson Road, Suite 221, Columbus, Ohio, 43220.
