Robert Allan Sharpe

Courtenay, BC

September 11, 1943 – February 1, 2016

Passed peacefully in St Joseph’s General Hospital after a lengthy battle with COPD. Born in Shawville, Quebec; the (3rd) child of Manson and Hermonie Sharpe.

Predeceased by father Manson, mother Hermonie, adopted sister Tammy, brother Clifford, and nephew Jeremy Sharpe. Bob will be dearly missed by his loving wife, Linda (Waugh), stepson Trevor Newton (Chris), grandchildren Nick and Nathan, and stepdaughter Christina Tarrant (Jay).

Bob is also survived by siblings Neil, Ruth, Connie, Donnie, Susan, Gerry, Peter, and by his god-daughter Natasha.

Bob was an active member in both the D’Esterre and Evergreen Senior Centres, where he organized the Whist club and called bingo for many years. He loved cruising around town on his scooter, indulging in his favourite pastime of photography.

Having had a positive personality, Bob easily made many friends.

Bob’s family would like to thank Dr. Maria Chow, Greg and Staff at The Living Room Pharmacy, Joan Dryden, Home Support and Nursing Support for their professional and compassionate care.

Private family arrangements. Flowers gratefully declined. For those wishing to do so may contribute to the Evergreen Seniors’ Centre in Bob’s memory.
