Sean Markey was a sweet kid with a sweet tooth. He loved bananas, his family and curling up to watch a movie with a Sprite, a dog to cuddle with and a warm blanket. His friends called him Slime, his family called him Seany, but everyone knew him as a boy with a big smile and a bigger heart.
Markey’s friends and relatives gathered Tuesday night at North Domingo Baca Skate Park, on Wyoming NE north of Paseo del Norte, to share memories of the 17-year-old who was shot and killed at a high school homecoming party on Sept. 29.
“It’s not fair that he was taken from us the way he was,” said his mother, Tricia Thompson-Ruger. “He wasn’t a threat to anybody.”
