From Ralph Dudley Kelley's[13593] diary provided by grandson R. Dudley Kelley-(Our grandfathers worked together) Mon Apr 19-1954 - A pleasant day - temperature 60 deg. Leslie Sears died suddenly- Mar 23. He was employed in the parks division of the Metropolitan District Commission for 20 years prior to his retirement 2 years ago when he and his wife moved to the old homestead in East Dennis. We worked together on many engineering projects and I shall miss his contact when on the cape.

Mom says grandpa was a very quiet man. Once when she rode down to the Cape with him from Boston for a weekend (before she and Dad were married) he only said a few words during the whole trip. They rented an apartment after they lost the family house in _________. He would have been a member of the Masonic Lodge there.

She also told me Grandpa was very interested in softball and that so was Harriet. That may be how they met? From the Campus Echo Vol 1, No 3, E Greenwich, RI Jun 1911 where he attended prep school: "On May 5, The LaSalle Academy team defeated the Academy team on the home field. Sears pitched a splendid game for the Academy, striking out 16 men and allowing only 4 hits, but poor support lost the game."

"On May 10, the Academy team defeated the Business Men's team, in a ten inning battle, by a score of 9-7. Sears pitched fine ball and had his opponents under control throughout the game. Heavy hitting was the feature of the contest."

"In a well played game at East Greenwich yesterday, the Academy defeated Rogers High of Newport by the score of 8 to 6. Lyon and Sears for East Greenwich and Martin and Wilks for Newport did good work at the bat."
