Sean Lee Harden

Cohoes, NY


Sean Lee Harden, 11, passed away early Monday morning at Albany Medical Center after his courageous and hard fought battle with sickle cell and the complications from surgery which finally claimed his young life.


He was born in Troy, NY and had lived for the most part in Cohoes.  He was a sixth grade student at Cohoes Middle School were he did his very best to excel in his studies.  Sean played in the Cohoes Little League since he was 9 and made it in to the All Stars this year.  He was a member of the Spindle City Vineyard Church of Cohoes and in the summer he would attend the Christian Youth Camp in the Adirondacks.  He believed that anyone could achieve anything even if it took a while.

Sean would say, “It doesn’t matter how slow you go as long as you never stop.”


Sean leaves behind to mourn his loss his parents, Brandon and April Lee Harden, his two siblings, which he loved dearly, Cahsi and Casonna as well as a host of relatives and many, many friends and people who loved and cared for him.
