I was very lucky to have Dr.Stearns as a dear friend and a vet to my animals. Doc loved life, he embraced life, he led a very full adventurous life. He was so dedicated to the hospital. He would have been 90 in June and he still worked 70 or more hours a week. His body was tired yet he never complained and just kept on working. He was a very smart man..I was always amazed at how much he knew about. He was like a walking encyclopedia. He loved Ohio State and the Buckeyes. He loved and owned many horses. He loved the Cleveland Police Mounted Unit. Men like him come along once in a lifetime. I am so grateful that I knew him. The hospital will never be the same without him..but hopefully it will go on. I lost a man whom I loved and respected so much..My heart is broken knowing that the chapter of my life with him in it is now over but I can hold on to knowing that there is another angel in heaven looking over us and that all the animals at Rainbow Bridge are so happy to see him. Thank you so much Doc for sharing your friendship with me..I am a better person because of it and I will always cherish the memories. I love you Doc and I miss you so so much already. God Bless You.

My husband and I were deeply saddened to hear about Dr. Stearns passing. We came to him after our beloved vet Dr. Bruce Wolf passed away suddenly. We felt very comfortable with him. He like Dr. Wolf could diagnose a problem just by looking at the dog walk in the room, preventing putting the animal through any needless stress. Dr. Wolf held him in the highest regard as did many people. He will be sorely missed by many of us. There are those that leave a mark in this world and Dr. Stearns was one of them. May he rest in peace.

Dr. Stearns was my hero. He was a good doctor and a charming man. I loved all his stories he would tell complete with photos and news articles! His kind heart and love for animals is the reason so many familes were able to have and love their pets. My three cats (Charlie, Pepper and TT) and my entire family will miss this wonderful man. My prayers go out to his entire family.

Doc was the best ever!!! There will never be another vet like him. He was kind and compassionate and always had a good joke to tell. Doc will be dearly missed by both animal and humans alike. His friendship, honestly and compassion was greatly appreciated. RIP Doc. With all our love and respect Donna and Lee. (Weegee Shasta, Sparkles, Whiskers, Little Bit, Spice, and Rascal)

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin,
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
You patched our pets up, you healed them
I want to Thankyou for your many years of great care you gave to the animals and owners...You will be deeply missed and forever loved.
You were a great man Doc.
Rest in peace

With all our respect to this great man who unselfishly gave the most to care for all animals. This vet hospital will never be the same without him. Rest in peace and God bless you forever.
