It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John Sharp on August 7, 2020 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Centre, Blairmore, AB. He was 67 years of age.
John was born in Vulcan, AB on July 3, 1953 to proud parents Helma and Fred Sharp. He grew up on the family farm and matured into a handsome and hard-working young man who captured the heart of a lovely young lady, Dorothy Chesney. The happy couple wed on July 7, 1978 and they went on to raise a beautiful family and create countless wonderful memories together. In 1983 they made the Crowsnest Pass, AB their home.
John worked for Teck for many years as an equipment operator and when he wasn’t working, he could be found doing yard work, or cruising around town on his lawn tractor. He also loved going camping and, more than anything, spending time with his family and grandkids. John’s was a life well lived and he will be deeply missed and forever remembered.
Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life is his wife, Dorothy Sharp of Blairmore, AB; his children, Courtney Ainsworth, Kelly (Jason) Halberg and Monica Sharp; his grandchildren, Jordan, Ben, Seth, Tailor, Rilee and Skyler; his extended family and many friends.
He was predeceased by his parents, Helma and Fred Sharp; his son, Derek Sharp; his brother, Bill Sharp; and his sister, Rose Fox.
A private Graveside Service will be held. A Gathering of Family and Friends will be held at the Sharp residence on August 12, 2020 from 1:00pm until 3:00pm. Memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by Angels Within Us – Pincher Creek Foundation (PO Box 911, Pincher Creek, AB T0K 1W0). Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
