1906 - 2004


The youngest man to ever graduate from Ohio State Medical School, Dr. Charles Pavey II, died Tuesday, Feb 17, 2004 from natural causes in his home. Pavey, 97, was born 13 May 1906, to father Charles William Pavey and mother Emma Metzger Pavey.

A graduate of Columbus North High School, Pavey received a Bachelor of Science from Ohio State in 1926. He promptly followed that with a medical degree from the class of 1928, graduating only 14 years after the medical school was founded. He was the oldest living graduate of the medical college.

Pavey's medical career spanned 57 years; 43 of which were spent as a member of the OSU Medical School's Obstetrics faculty. He also unofficially held the title of most experienced obstetrician in Columbus. In his 57 years of service, Pavey is said to have delivered more than 25,000 babies, and no one is disputing this claim. Celebrated journalist Walter Winchell even nicknamed Pavey "the Baby-Catcher" in a 1932 column for the Ohio State Journal. Pavey was revered in his community for his tireless work ethic and love for the area where he spent his entire life. "Charles was a great friend to the university community," said Linda Ridihalgh, a 32-year resident of the north campus area. "He lived every one of his days to the fullest that he could."

Pavey established Eventide, Inc., a rental management company, in 1937 as a side project to his medical practice. He hoped to preserve the community in which he grew up. Eventide's properties are located in the 2200 block of North High Street, north of Lane Avenue and south of Oakland Avenue. It was Pavey's hard work and determination that restored the appeal and charm to the century-old houses he owned. Eventide established a reputation for reasonable rent and punctual responses to maintenance requests.

The realty business became a family affair when, 20 years after Pavey started the company, his son joined Eventide and worked there until his death in 2001.

Pavey will be remembered by many of his friends as a kind, loving and gentle man."He was such a wonderful person, he loved his community and most importantly children loved him," said Ben Brace, a retired university employee and long time friend. "He always worked so hard in preserving this area, he has done so much. He will be remembered for the pride he took in his home."

Pavey's life is a story of triumph in a time when technology was scarce. In an interview with The Columbus Dispatch in 2001 Pavey recalls how great of a risk childbirth used to be. "Cesarean section deliveries were difficult, and now they aren't thanks to antibiotics," Pavey said in the article. "The risk is greatly reduced."

His spirit will live on in the houses he restored and the thousands of people he brought into the world. He will be remembered by the people around him as a diligent worker who never ceased from improving the place he called home. "He leaves behind a grand legacy. We should all remember Dr. Pavey for what he has given to this community," Ridihalgh said.

He is survived by one son, Jonathan Rector Pavey of Indianapolis IN, eight grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his wife of 69 years, Gwendolen Rector Pavey; by their daughter Nancy Gwen Pavey Martin; and by their son Charles William Pavey III. Also predeceasing him were four half-siblings: Hugh McCoy Pavey, Edith Belle Pavey Taylor, Mabel Zoe Pavey Blackburn , Grace Delphine Pavey Schmaltz; and twofull-siblings: Roy Donald Pavey, and Fay Adelaide Pavey Smith.

Services will be held at Rutherford Funeral Home, 2383 N. High St., on Friday Feb. 27 at 11 a.m. and calling hours will be 6-8 p.m. Wednesday and 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. Thursday.

In May last, Our venerable brother, Rev. Isaace Pavy (SIC), By a fall from his horse, was suddenly precipitated into another state of being. He breathed an hour or more, after he fell: but never opened his eyes, or spake again.

He was in his 75th year: was a native of Sussex County, DEL: Embraced Religion and joined the Church in his native state almost sixty years ago: had Been a preacher almost 50 years: emigrated to the West, first to Kentucky, and finally to Ohio, in about 1808-09. And settled on Lee's Creek, near Leesburg, Highland County. Here he opened his door for preaching and invited his neighbors to hear, and preachers to preach: while he himself preached in all the new settlements with his reach, and was useful. In 1811, when the harvest truly was great, and the laborers few, too few for the great missionary field that lay us, Isaac Pavy, and several other local and located preachers, came to our help, and entered the itinerant ranks and helped us very much. Brother Pavy rendered Efficient service for seven years, and then retired to the local ranks. His house was always the comfortable home of the traveling preachers: Asbury, Whatcoat, MacKendree, Roberts, and others, often lodged and rested here. All those who led the way, and prepared it for others wherein to follow, are passing off the stage in rapid succession. On the day after his death, I preached his funeral sermon to the aged widow, children, grand-childrend, and great grand-children, and a large concourse of citizens and friends. Brother Pavy bought and paid for his land twice, and yet left his numerous family of sons and daughters much better provided for than are most of the families of those who, by dishonest and dishonorable land speculating, seek to enrich and aggrandize themselves. Besides, he sought to lay up treasures in heaven. May all his descendants do the same. James Quinn, July 10, 1843
