Charles Sears will always be remembered by me as not only the father of one of my best friends Len, but as much more.

Charlie was a member of the greatest generation. He answered the call to arms when the country was attacked at the beginning of WWII. He served gallantly in the European Theatre of War in the U.S. Army earning many citations for courage, guts,sacrifice and bravery. He came home, and being married to the love of his life, Bea or Beako as he lovingly liked to call her. He raised a family, and taught his son Len and I that even after going through all that he did in the war there was an even higher duty or calling in life. That was the duty of family,responsibility,loyalty,learning, hard work, and in his own special way,love.

Charlie loved his family as well as the outdoors and nature.He loved to take care of things, fix things, make things better. He loved to hunt. He loved to have great dogs to accompany him into the field. He loved the Finger Lakes and he worked to keep a boat and camp so as to give others and his family a way to share his love of being out in nature and on the waterways. I will always cherish my times up at the camp on the Tug Hill. What a beautiful place in the forest that was.

I knew my family would always be welcomed whenever we went to see Charlie. He had a strong sense of humour and a good hardy laugh. He enjoyed a good joke and a friendly drink with the ones he loved. He knew he experienced things early in his life that most people should never have to go through but he never complained and instead showed us all how to pick up the pieces and get on with what's important in life.

He showed a deep kindness and love to each of my daughters Elizabeth and Melissa. Melissa developed a special love for 'her' Charlie and she even did a special school audio recording project of him recalling his early boyhood days on the family farm in Conquest. The enclosed photo was taken from that encounter.

It's people like Charlie Sears that make the world a better and safer place to live. I will miss him always. I will never forget him any more than I could forget my own father Clarence. They both gave me examples of what decent responsible men should be like.. They were both truly strong men.

Charlie Sears was blessed with a very strong character. He'll always be an example to me of what a strong courageous man should be like. For that I'll be forever grateful.

Rest in peace Charlie. You earned it a hundred times over.

Charlie was more than my father. He was my mentor, teacher, and best friend. My father was always steadfast, loyal, and true to me when others were not. No matter how many mistakes I made he never turn his back. He literally set my bones and bound my wounds. In later life I somewhat repaid that debt. As a young man he endured and survived places and things like Anzio and Operation Dragon. He truly was part of the greatest generation. This gave him the confidence and quiet strength to be the man that he was. I'm gratefull for the 60 years we had together. He will always be with me.
