Charles Thomas Cayce, Grandson of Edgar Cayce, Dies at 73
The eldest son of Hugh Lynn and Sally Cayce, and the eldest grandchild of Edgar Cayce, Charles Thomas led the A.R.E. from 1977 until his retirement in 2006. He was predeceased by his brother, Greg. He is survived by his wife, Leslie, his two children, Corinne (and husband Jesse Luckett) and Catherine (and husband Thomas Pierce) and four grandchildren.
According to Executive Director and CEO Kevin J. Todeschi, "Charles Thomas Cayce dedicated more than 40 years of his life to this organization. He was a valued spokesperson, and a popular speaker and sacred sites tour leader, and one of our principal board members. He was a calming influence, a champion of young people, and a trusted resource on a variety of topics-like meditation, psychic ability, and incorporating spirituality into our daily lives. He is irreplaceable and his counsel and presence will truly be missed."
Charles Thomas grew up in Virginia Beach and attended Hampden-Sydney College and later did graduate work at the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Mississippi, from which he received his Ph.D. in child psychology in 1968. He taught college for several years and worked for the U.S. State Department as an educational consultant in Germany, Italy, Pakistan and Turkey before returning to Virginia Beach and joining the A.R.E. staff.
