WARE, Earle R. II, of Richmond, passed away on August 2, 2018, at the age of 82 after a brief illness. He was the son of the late Dr. and Mrs. Earle R. Ware. Raised in Fredericksburg at Smithsonia, an antebellum home used as a hospital during the Civil War, Earle developed a strong interest in American history, genealogy and relic hunting.

Earle was a graduate of Randolph Macon Academy in Front Royal, Hampden-Sydney College (Lambda Chi Alpha and Chi Beta Phi) and the University of Richmond Graduate School. He retired from United Va. Bank in 1987 as a senior vice president and spent many wonderful years fishing on the Essex Mill Pond and Cohoke Pond. Earle is survived by his wife of 62 years, Judy Elliott; daughter, Anne Ware Maloney; son, Richard Lee Ware (Cheryl); and grandchildren, Katherine Maloney, Anna Lee Ware, Thomas Ware and Molly and Colleen Trott. The family will receive friends from 1 to 3 p.m. on August 5, 2018, at Woody Funeral Home (Parham). A family service will be held at a later date. The family suggests expressions of sympathy be sent to Children’s Hospital Foundation, 2924 Brook Rd., Richmond, Va. 23227.
