  1. CandleImageMy dearest Mr. Sears,

    I’m just now hearing of your passing. It truly breaks my heart because I’ve been looking for you for years. I’ve always wanted to catch up with you about life and see how things were going. While I was in middle school, you were one of my favorite teachers. I hate you’re gone because you were definitely one.of a kind.

    Te amo Mr. Sears…discipulus Yvette Hardin. 💜

  2. CandleImageMr. Sears was my middle school Latin teacher at SJ Davis. My condolences to the family. May he Rest In Peace

  3. Mr. Sears was my middle school Latin teacher. He was always very passionate about Latin. He said Latin wasn’t dead. I was just telling my family that he got me interested in Greek mythology. When I was in middle school and watching Jason and the Argonauts, I told my parents about what I had learned in Latin class. He was a great man. I remember seeing his bruises on his arms and face from his wrestling matches. We jokingly made fun of him. But he was the real deal. Not some special effects from WWF. I respected Mr. Sears very much and I’ve often spoken of him to my kids and in friends that went to middle with me. Thank you for your kindness, passion for teaching and memories that I’ll always cherish. I wasn’t the greatest of students, as he caught me cheating on a test, but he never treated me any different. God Bless you Mr. Sears and to your family.

  4. CandleImageI was a former Latin student. I loved the time spent on his class. From reading the Latin newspapers and taking us to competitions to playing “El Toro”, he did everything with passion and earnest enthusiasm. I will always remember him as a man who did more than most to show others how to live a life.

  5. CandleImageMr. Sears taught me Latin in high school and we became friends after I graduated. It was then that he shared his world of wrestling with me, over a dinner of chicken and broccoli fried rice! I wish we had kept in contact after that. I thought he was one of the most interesting people I had ever met!

  6. I am so saddened to learn of Tom;s death. We were a year apart in school. I missed speaking with him at Christmas this year so I tried to call and discovered the news. Rest in peace ,my friend.
