Sean was passionate about his job, loved helping others, and being of service to his community. Sean was born December 2, 1987 in Baltimore, Maryland to John and Noreen Tuder. He grew up in Jacksonville, FL, and moved to Daphne, AL in 2015. He joined the Alabama National Guard in the 173rd infantry unit where he earned the rank of specialist. Tuder joined the Mobile Police Department in 2016 and spent most of his time there at 1st Precinct. He was named "Officer of the Month" in 2017.

Thank you Officer Sean Tuder for your selfless service to your city and giving the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. I pray for your wife and family. God is good and never fails us. The Bible says for the Christian to be absent from the body is to present with the Lord. God
