Marvin E. Sharp

Marvin E. Sharp, 78, of Amanda, passed away unexpectedly at his residence on Tuesday, January 31, 2017. He was born November 21, 1938 in Fairfield County and was the son of the late Alford Vance Sharp and Helen Louise (VanFossen) Sharp who survives.  Marvin was a life long farmer in the Amanda area, former Clearcreek Twp. Trustee and Amanda-Clearcreek Board of Education.  He was an avid horse lover.  Marvin enjoyed everything about Amanda Clearcreek and made a point to attend every sport at the school.
Marvin will be missed greatly by his wife of 50 years, Jackie (Kneece) Sharp; children, Tracy (Patti) Sharp, Robin Sharp-Arnett and Jay (Charity) Sharp all of Amanda; two grandchildren, Kelsie (Trey) Miller and Maverick Sharp; sisters, Alberta Davis, Linda (Bill) Hartley, Karen (Larry) Hoffman and Terrell (Dave) Edwards; mother-in-law, Pat Bethel of Amanda; brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and many friends.  He is also survived by a very dear friend Dale “Stoney” Stoneburner of Amanda.  In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by his brother, John Sharp.
Cremation has been handled with care by the Taylor Funeral Home in Amanda.  A memorial service will be held 4:00 p.m. Saturday, February 4, 2017 at the 1977 Gymnasium at Amanda Clearcreek.  The family will receive friends from 12:00 p.m. until time of service.
In lieu of flowers, a fund has been established at the Kingston National Bank as the Marvin Sharp Pay to Play Fund to help kids play sports at Amanda Clearcreek who might not otherwise be able to afford it.  Donations may be made directly at the bank or at the service.

Jackie & family (also Helen & family)
I am so very sorry--I just found out the 6th that Marvin had passed.
He has been in my life as long as I can remember and certainly is a
cousin who will be missed.
May the peace and comfort that only the Lord can give be with all of you.
Love and Hugs to all,
Ed and Linda Weaver Goss

I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family.  During this difficult time, God is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit He saves. Psalms 34:18

Robin and Kelsie.....So very sorry for your sudden loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear the passing of Marvin. My father, Richard Miller, thought very highly of "Sharpy" as he called him. I had a very nice conversation with him when my dad passed several years ago. Of course my father-in law, Don Farmer and Marvin were like two peas in a pod! Well now they are ALL together again. I know he will be missed by many. He was one in a million.  Our hearts are heavy but he is with the lord and reunited with old friends and family.

It may seem silly to some, but not to those who knew him.  He was as big as life and one of the happiest people you will ever meet.  The stories told and spun were one of a kind, leaving you in stitches every time. To lend a hand or time was never a problem.  Supporter of family, friends, and community were high priority.  Oh the joy and pride he had in his family.  From grandpa extra-ordinare, to husband, father or friend, Marvin will be missed beyond words. The lives that were touched by him are many.  Till we meet again, Good Buddy, Good Friend. Your Friend "Sally".

Marvin is a favorite cousin and was a mentor as I grew up. He was a good role model and helped me more than he probably knew. My heart goes out to his family in this time of loss. Godspeed. Love, Bill

My sincerest sympathy to the entire Sharp family.  Just seen Marvin last week at the office and we were remembering the unexpected passing of my daddy (Edgar Stump) in October.  He was so kind to offer his sympathy to me and I'll forever be grateful for the wonderful things he said about my daddy.  I know what you're going through as this will be one of the toughest times for you,  I'm truly sorry.  My prayers and thoughts are with you!  May God comfort you and hold you during the days ahead!  God Bless You!

Sorry for your loss! We always enjoyed his life.

Tracy Sharp and family, sorry to hear this. Hard to believe seeing him so well at the last 8th grade boys game that I had attended with Burnsy.
