Sean Lampkin’s cause of death: How did Sean Lampkin die?
Marsel Watts, a friend of Lampkin, announced the news in a Facebook post on March 8.
“My friend, my last roommate for 10 years, a father and family man, my brother, skate buddy, business partner, and trainer passed away this morning. RIP Sean Lampkin,” Watts wrote
Lampkin died in his sleep, according to Essence writer Memnar Grayton. The reason for death, however, has not been disclosed.
“Sean gave us every morning the shining sun to lead his loved ones and friends down paths that are bright and clear of any danger. He gave us streams of love every day when we’re not feeling good, or we don’t seem to not want to do anything,” Grayton said.
Grayton added, “But the thought of his loud laugh and adorable smile made you change any negative thoughts to positive ones. He’s that type of man. He gave us his time and effort to situations that he had no clue about but was there to support us for the cause. He gave us his emotions when any family or friend needed sympathy or empathy for their emotional situations.”
