Sean was born December 12, 1967 in Port Arthur General Hospital, (Thunder Bay). Despite fighting cystic fibrosis all his life, he played minor hockey, earned an Honours Bachelor of Commerce Degree from Lakehead University, was tech savvy and carved out a life of meaning in his own way. His marvelous sense of humour and appreciation of life served him well dealing with other medical challenges following a double lung transplant in 2012. As the sun rose over a beautiful snow covered 2019 New Year’s Day in Thunder Bay, Sean quietly slipped away. Predeceased by his grandparents, Elsie and Harry Dugard, Virginia and Pasquale Bortolussi and Uncle Denis Bortolussi. Left to mourn him are his mom and dad Arnie and Liz Bortolussi, sister Felicia (Ken McKinnon), special aunt Ruth Dugard, uncles Vincent (Gloria) and Norman (Ruth) Bortolussi , aunt Diane (John Hill) and aunt Jill Bortolussi, numerous cousins as well as relatives in the UK and Italy. Funeral Mass will be celebrated by Reverend Victor DeGagne at Corpus Christi Church, January 9, 2019 at 11:00 am with visitation one hour prior in the church. In lieu of flowers, donations to Cystic Fibrosis Canada or the Renal Unit at Thunder Bay Regional Health Science Centre, would be appreciated. Arrangements are in care of the Sargent & Son Funeral Directors, 21 N. Court Street. On-line condolences may be made at

Sorry for your loss Mr. and Mrs. Bortolussi and Felicia. Though it's quite a long time ago, I do remember having good times playing hockey with Sean and Mr. Bortolussi coaching us and also later memories throughout the school years and being neighbours. Have to always cherish those good times and memories. Sincerely, Gary Gummeson

Dear Liz, Felicia and Arnie: Linda, Robert and I were saddened to learn of Sean’s passing. Over the years we would hear of what a fine, strong young man he was and, undoubtedly, this was due in no small part to the love and assistance you showered on him over his entire life. You are in our thoughts. Take care. Sincerely, JimCella.
