Sean R. Knittel

August 27, 1978 — January 25, 2023

Sean R. Knittel, 44, of Sioux City, entered into eternal rest on January 25, 2023. Sean was born on August 27, 1978 to Sidney and Jeanne Knittel. Sean attended East High School in Sioux City and graduated in 1997. He had a degree from WITCC as an audio production assistant received in 2014. He had several jobs including working at Stream, Alorica, Five Star, and Century Link call centers, and worked at Panera Bread, Long John Silvers, KFC, and HuHot. After college, he worked on call at Kingsbury Electronics Solutions. His favorite job was working at Little Caesar's as their guitar shaker boarder, and had a full article in the Sioux City Journal regarding his enthusiasm with this job! Sean loved to hang out with friends and loved to spend time with his family, especially his 5 nephews. Sean played an iconic role in the Sioux City music scene. He was in 3 bands, "Bacon", "Chunder", and "Pukeali", and was always up for a show at the old Cattle Club, and at Whiskey Dicks as of recent. Sean married Meg Kezerle on September 4, 2010, however, the couple separated in 2020. Sean was a unique individual, totally unfiltered, funny, witty, and a real soft-hearted guy. He was amazing with band trivia, telling stories and making people laugh. He absolutely loved to perform and see live music and be up front and center. He loved owls, video games, and his cat Plunders. Survivors include sister; Michelle (Knittel) and Rick Gunn, Uncle; Steve Knittel, and Aunt; Mary Jo Knittel, nephews; Cody Gunn, Levi Gunn, Macean Gunn, and Colton Gunn. He was preceded in death by his grandparents; Raymond and Dorothea Knittel, and Gilbert and Anita Witt, his parents; Sidney and Jeanne Knittel, and a nephew; Antony "Tony" Gunn, and his cat; Sinders.
