Sean Craig Pound, 55, of Venice, Fla., found peace in the arms of his loving savior Thursday, October 7, 2021, after bravely fighting for over 3 years. He fought the good fight, and never wavered in his faith. Born in Long Beach, California on December 13, 1965, and growing up in both Florida and Minnesota, he graduated from Cape Coral High School in 1983. He received his Associate’s degree in Criminal Justice from Palm Beach Community College, and his Bachelor’s degree from Western Carolina University, graduating Summa Cum Laude.
He was a traffic homicide investigator for the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office, and retired as Director of Internal Affairs from the Asheville Police Department, in North Carolina. His honesty and integrity were always evident in all of his positions, and he received many awards for excellence of service over the years, including nomination for Investigator of the Year from the National Internal Affairs Investigators Association.
An avid reader, Sean also loved to explore new places, and would never hesitate to take spur-of-the-moment car trips with his wife who was always ready and willing to go.
He is survived by his wife of 31 years, Renae Pound of Venice; son Eric, of Charlotte, NC; daughter Allie, of Venice; mother Lois, of St. Petersburg, and many other loving family members. He is preceded in death by his loving father Gary, and brother William (Bill).
