THOMAS A. SHARP, PORT JERVIS, NEW YORK

THOMAS A. SHARP
December 4 1927 - September13 2011
Thomas A. Sharp, born in Port Jervis, NY to Albert and Irene Sharp, passed away September 13, 2011 after a lengthy illness.
Surviving him is his wife and partner, Thelma Hunter Sharp. He leaves behind his son, Ross Sharp and his wife, Christine, his daughters, Penny Sharp and Kathleen A Sharp-Green and her husband, Michael. He will be missed by his sister, Jean Pohle, and his nieces and nephews. Tom lived in Port Jervis his entire life, and was retired from Kolmar Laboratories.
Tom, along with Thelma, provided for their family, and gave them a life he could be proud of. He found much joy in his home and garden, and if the Yankees lost occasionally life was good.
Thomas A. Sharp was honorably discharged from the Army of The United States, in which he served his country during World War II. His unit was the Company C, 290th Combat Engineers, which fought battles and campaigns in the Rhineland and Central Europe. He was especially proud of the Thank-You-America-Certificate he received from the French government in recognition for his participation in battles for the liberation of France. He was one of the four men in the "squad" in the excerpt below: "Special squads under the direction of Capt. Telling, Company Commander, moved suddenly by night to an undisclosed location, waited for an impending heavy fog to develop, thus furnishing greater protection for the men, on their mission, of clearing hundreds of German Shoe Mines and Anti-tank mines, which were preventing the 101st from approaching the river edge for the strategic crossing. On hands and knees, the men, working with break-neck speed and obeying all rules of security, labored throughout the night and until dawn, clearing the path for the waiting 101st. So skillfully was the job completed that no fire was drawn from the enemy, even though they were located in heavy concentration, but a hundred or so yards away."
Tom, we miss you. Rest well.
The family would like to thank the nurses on the third floor of Bon Secours for their compassion and wonderful care during Tom’s final days.
Memorial Services and Military Honors will be held on Friday, September 16, 2011 at 10:30 a.m. at the Knight-Auchmoody Funeral Home, 154 East Main Street, Port Jervis, N Y. Rev. Patt Kauffman will officiate. Internment will be private.
Memorial contributions can be made to the charity of one’s choice.
Arrangements are by Knight-Auchmoody Funeral Home,154 East Main Street, Port Jervis.
