I am a friend of the Conway's --- Kathleen is Sean's aunt. I just read his friend's tribute. I did not know Sean but wish to offer my sincere condolences to the Fegan Family.

'He Traveled the World'

The day Sean Fegan got to meet privately with the New York Yankees, his sister Anne Marie nearly lost her mind with envy and excitement. But Mr. Fegan? Well, he was unfazed.

"I would have killed to go, but he said he had other plans," said Ms. Fegan. "What other plans could be more important than the meeting Yankees?"

Mr. Fegan was a broker with Fred Alger Management, and it was through his job, at a charity event, that he got to meet the Yankees. The only thing that got him really excited, his sister said, was traveling around the world. Every year, he would grab his passport and head as far his savings would take him - Spain, Italy, Nice, Monaco, Ireland. Mr. Fegan, 34, saw them all, but never in the way that most tourists did. "He would head straight for the smallest town he could find, anywhere where there were no tourists."

And no matter where in the world he was, like clockwork, Mr. Fegan would call home to check in with mom and dad. On Sept. 11, he never got a chance to.

'Sean B. Fegan: Nurturing Strong Roots'

Sean B. Fegan eventually gave up on the lettuce he planted in his family's garden in Blauvelt in Rockland County, where he visited for Sunday dinner every week. "His scallions were his biggest success," Mr. Fegan's sister Anne Marie said; the lettuce was one of his rare defeats.

At 34, Mr. Fegan was a senior equity trader and an assistant vice president at Fred Alger Management Inc. He was meticulous about the way he looked. "He ran and worked out," Ms. Fegan said. "He had really beautiful blue eyes." Mr. Fegan also had to get the details right, whether in long, funny stories he loved to tell or when quizzing his parents, Colette and Peter, and Anne Marie and his other siblings, Catherine and Peter Jr., about how their lives were going.

But Mr. Fegan also liked to party in Manhattan, where he lived, to go to Jets games and to travel to Europe, often with his girlfriend, Jenny Hebeler. A favorite destination was County Cavan in Ireland, where his family came from and still maintains a home. He wanted the family to have dual citizenship and had applied for it for himself. "He was very proud of his heritage," Ms. Fegan said. "He always made the most of life."
