I just found out today as I drove to take my dog Kaiser to see Dr. Stearns, that the good Doctor had passed away. I am very saddened for the loss, for all us creatures (human & animal). Dr. Stearns love and devotion will not soon be forgotten. I wish to extend my deepest condolences to the Family and staff of Euclid Veterinary Clinic.

We were saddened to learn that our dear Dr. Stearns had passed away. We learned while taking our latest rescue dog, Mr. Chumley, to meet Dr. Stearns for the first time and found the note on the door of the clinic. Dr. Streans had cared gently for my families, and my pets for 50 years - Rex, Rex II, Cinders, Wolfgang, and JB, our 15 year old beagle who passed away a year ago. No one had better stories, a more interesting office, kinder staff, or more love for animals. We will miss him dearly. He truly loved "all creatures great and small."

I also just learned of Dr. Stearns' passing. I really liked him and he's taken really great care of my 14 year old beagle (CeCe) since she was an 8 week old puppy. I will truly miss you Dr. Stearns and your sense of humor!

I loved Doc ! I'll miss him. I admire him for being the man he was and the caring he had for each and every animal he touched. He was a fine man and a true gentleman with a heart of gold. I love and will always remember the moments when he said things that made me laugh. He had a great sense of humor. Once he told us that he delivered a cow on a ship during WW II. Amazing. I told him to write a book... like James Herriott did. He said his sis-in-law told him to too. I loved the way he defended an animal.. once when people brought a dog in with the collar grown to the dog's neck, Doc was quite adament and let them know. He was wise and truthful and wonderful. He gave me a picture of himself and his horses, back at Thisiledown days. He sure was a handsome man ! Taking care of all the Cleveland Mounted Police horses too ! I'll never forget and am grateful to have the honor and privelge that it was to know such a class-act person ! I read once , ' The World Knows Little of It's Greatest Heroes. ' He is one of them ! it was fun to talk to him about things. My husband and I took the poodles in. He had trouble with his throat with horseness that day and he said ' Listen carefully. I don't want to repeat things. " It was memorable that day . I asked him a question and he looked at my hubby and said, " Now what part of this does she not understand? " They laughed and of course he had that twinkle in his eyes. Our family will miss him . One more thing... he went in to the hospital to check on his patients every day .
Amazing one of a kind man. Thank you for listening.

Some of my earliest and fondest recollections as a child were of time spent with family at Doc and Mrs. Sterns country farm and on their boat near Lake Erie. Early on, it became very obvious to this youngster that the Sterns' knew how to live and love life to the fullest.  What fine and decent people to have been touched by at an early age.

I first met Doc Stearns in 1965 when I was editor of the Horsemen's Journal magazine and Dan wrote a monthly column. We remained friends throughout his long and productive life. Dan loved life, family, people, horses and small animals. I'm not at all surprised to read the many well-deserved tributes in his memory.
