Edward Alan Sears


                Edward Sears, 80 passed away peacefully at his home in bed on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 with his family by his bedside and I fought a good battle with cancer. Ed was born on May 10, 1940 in Ferrisburgh, VT the son of Charles and Millicent Sears.

                Celia (Keith) Sears, my wife, I will dearly miss our special times together on stage singing karaoke duets.

                I’ll leave you with this…please don’t cry because I’m gone; instead be happy that I was here. (Or just maybe a tear or two. After all, I passed away). He left behind a hell of a lot of stuff to his son (Chuck Sears), daughter (Christine Hayden) grandchildren (Dominic and Michael Hayden) and very close brother (Leonard Sears) whom have no idea what to do with all the stuff down in his basement.

                Ed was an all-round good man, good husband and good father. He was a generous and the kind of guy who would literally give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Ed had a dry sense of humor and developed special friendships over his long life. Ed was an avid hunter, fisherman, machinist, carpenter, a big fan of the Addison County Fair & Field Days tractor pulls and demolition derby.

                Special thanks are given by Ed Sear’s Family to the caregivers at the Addison County Home Health & Hospice.

                A memorial visitation for Ed will be held on Monday, February 1st from Noon to 1 p.m. at Brown-McClay Funeral Home in Vergennes with a service following at 1 p.m. A mask is required for the service. For those who cannot attend in person the services will be recorded and available to watch on  the following Wednesday on the Brown-McClay Funeral Home website which the video will be located on the bottom of the obituary. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to American cancer Society, 55 Day Lane, Williston, VT 05495. To send online condolences to his family please visit www.browwnmcclayfuneralhomes.com

He wrote a great obituary and was obviously a very interesting man with the same sense of humor that his daughter carries on! I never met him but know his daughter. Because of my age and COVID it is safer for me not to attend the service but my thoughts and prayers are with all the family.
