The family is saddened to announce the passing of Bernard Sharpe at Windsor Court in Fredericton, New Brunswick on November 29, 2018. Born in Gordonsville, New Brunswick on February 22, 1931, he was the son of the late Roy and Hazel (Fawcett) Sharpe.
Bernard moved to Fredericton as a young man in the 1950’s to start his career as an electrician. He married his sweetheart, Marjorie, in 1958 and bought a home on York Street. Many boarders have fond memories of their years staying at the Sharpe home while they attended university or college. Bernard and Marjorie raised their two children in Fredericton, and always had an open door for visiting friends and relatives.
Bernard retired as Chief Electrical Inspector from the provincial government in 1996. He was known for his generosity and kindness, readily volunteering his time to do electrical jobs for friends and family, snow blow his neighbors’ driveways, or mow their lawns.
Bernard is survived by his children, Darrell (Raymonde) and Carol (David Urquhart), his grandchildren, his brother Armand (Doreen), as well as many extended family and friends.
In addition to his parents, Bernard was predeceased by his wife Marjorie (Pollock), his brother Albert (Florence), sisters Jennie Trainor (John), Rena McGroty (Frank), Pearl Willison (Charles), and Anna Pratt (Guy).
A visitation will be held at McAdams Funeral Home on Saturday, December 1, from 12- 2 pm, with the Funeral Service starting at 2 pm. Steve Shultz, Eric Lockhart and Dianne Anderson will be officiating. A reception will follow the service. Donations in Bernard’s name can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society (N.B), or Meals On Wheels.
