James SHARPE

SHARPE James Ian. Jan. 25, 1944 – Feb. 9, 2013. Jim was born in Montreal, Quebec but spent most of life in BC and Alberta. He was predeceased by his parents John and Dorothy Sharpe in the 1970’s. Jim passed away quietly at the Valhaven Rest Home in Abbotsford on February 9th, 2013 where he had been a resident for the past nine months. Jim was a loving and caring man who enjoyed his work and his family. He was happiest when he was on a motorcycle or just tinkering with a motorcycle or car. He loved to have his family around and was usually the one telling the jokes. Most of his adult life he worked in the automotive industry, as the Service Manager for Canadian Tire in several locations in BC, and other automotive related companies. Jim is survived by his loving wife of 33 years Cheryl, daughter Teri Sharpe, Langley, BC, step-son Jeff Gale (Debbie), Abbotsford, BC, granddaughter Kerri Neufeld, Lethbridge, Alta, granddaughter Ashley Gale, Abbotsford, BC and his great-grandson Jordie Neufeld, Lethbridge, Alta. His brother David Sharpe (Carolyn) Stratford, Ontario, nieces Brianna Sharpe, Calgary, Alta and Erin Altomare, Vancouver, BC, nephews Robin Sharpe, Thailand, Michael Sharpe, Ontario and Chad Altomare, Vancouver BC. Special thanks to the wonderful staff at Valhaven Rest Home that made Jim’s last days peaceful; also to Doctor Don Scaman. Anyone wishing to do so may make donations in Jim’s name to the Alzheimer Society of BC.
