Extra information in the Parish Magazine
Born in the same house in Badsey Fields Lane which was to be his home for so much of his life, Mr Sears, like his parents before him, was very much part of this parish. Educated at Dean Close School in Cheltenham, he entered his father’s business, and became a prominent Fruit and Vegetable Merchant in this district. Last year he suffered a serious illness, which compelled him to retire from business, but from which he nevertheless made a very good recovery. His sudden death while he and his wife were on holiday spared him the trial of a long drawn-out illness, but has come as a sharp blow to his wife and to his many friends. We send our deepest sympathy to Mrs Sears in her bereavement.
