It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Robert (Bob) James Sharpe on April 8, 2014 at the age of 62. Bob was born to James and Enid Sharpe in Innisfail on May 21, 1951 and was raised on a small farm west of Innisfail with his four sisters; Elva, Joanne, Heather and Susan. Eventually his travels landed him in BC where he met Florence, the love of his life. They were married in 1973 and Bob became a wonderful father to three boys; Curtis (Candice), Ashley (Nicole) and Courtney (Laurina) and a loving grandpa to his 9 grandchildren, Travin, Keein, Hannah, Dallas, Ethan, Austin, Brody, Peyton and Kenzie. Bob lived his life with a passion. He was actively involved in his sons’ sports teams as they were growing up, often loading up the red suburban with kids and equipment and heading out to soccer fields or arenas. For many years, he was an active member of the Innisfail Curling Club and more recently, he developed an adoration for radio controlled airplanes and was very involved with the Central Alberta Radio Fun Flyers. On any given day from spring to fall, he could be found at the flying field testing out a new toy. Bob loved the outdoors and would take every opportunity he could to go camping, quadding, hunting or fishing. Anyone who has ever been on any of these excursions with Bob, knows that he was ALWAYS more than prepared, even when the three hour tour took a little bit longer. It is because Bob’s zest for life that he met so many wonderful people who became treasured friends. A celebration of Bob’s life will be held at the Innisfail United Church on Monday, April 14, 2014 at 11:00 am. Memorial donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
