Obituary of Elwood Storey Sharpe
It is with great sadness that the family of Elwood Storey Sharpe announce his passing on July 30, 2023. The son of the late Arthur & Vera Sharpe, he was born, raised and lived his entire life in Scotch Settlement. He married the love of his life, Annis (Yerxa) Sharpe in 1962. They spent 61 years together.
Elwood worked on farms and in the woods in his younger years. Eventually becoming a carpenter, he worked at Mactaquac Park for 21 years where he became Maintenance Foreman, retiring in 1993. Elwood loved wood working and he was an avid gardener. He loved to pass on his knowledge of gardening to anyone who was interested, however his passion was his family.
He is survived by his wife, Annis; daughter, Carol (John) Jones; sons, Robin (Angie) Sharpe and Philip (Lisa) Sharpe; grandchildren, Robert (Katie) Sharpe, Stephanie (Aaron) Mead, Emily Sharpe, Jacob Miller & Joshua Sharpe; three great grandchildren; brother, Harold (Sylvia) Sharpe, Raymond (Madeline) Sharpe and Cecil Sharpe; sisters, Mabel (late Arnold) Ingraham, Marion (Conrad) Brewer and sister-in-law, Sheila (late Allen) Sharpe.
