Obituary of Bryce Lawrence Sears
Sodus Point: Passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, December 23, 2021 at the age of 32. Bryce was predeceased by his father, Wayne Sears; grandparents, Larry and Dora Jane Sears, Ron Haywood and Dick Darling; uncle, Denny Sears. He leaves behind his mother, Wendy Ingersoll (Tom Donald); stepfather, Doug Ingersoll; daughter, Adaline Sears; sister and brother-in-law, Kasey and Frank DeNoto; nephew, Julian DeNoto; niece, Willow DeNoto; grandmother, Donna Haywood; step-grandmother, Adeline Crawshaw; several aunts, uncles, cousins, Jesse and the Franklin House crew, his long-time kitty companion, Princess Lilly a.k.a. Mad Cat, and many very special friends.
Bryce enjoyed playing golf and basketball throughout his years at North Rose-Wolcott High School and was nominated the class clown when he graduated in 2007. He continued to play golf as an adult, and he loved his Miami Dolphins football team despite being teased about it. He looked forward to and thoroughly enjoyed camp week each summer with a group of his best friends; friends can recall he would wear the shortest jorts, grow out the worst mustache and bust out the best moves of the week. Bryce also participated in and attended numerous weddings; there were so many over the years!
People of all ages were immediately drawn to Bryce; he was witty, a big flirt, had an infectious laugh and the extraordinary ability to make others laugh as well. He had a big, beautiful smile that would light up a room and a personality that was even bigger. He will always be remembered as the life of the party and the first person to hit the dance floor. Bryce will forever be deeply loved and missed by his family and friends; our lives are all richer for having known him.
A full life is not measured by the number of years we live, but rather by the life in the years that we have. Bryce lived his life to the fullest.
