Tim was a devoted and loving husband to his wife Patricia (Trish). He spent every day leading and serving her to the fullest. Each morning Trish was greeted in bed with a cup of coffee and a honey bun. Together, Tim and Trish created a life full of love and service to others.
Tim, known by his grandchildren as “Pop,” was a Professional Grandparent! He always showed up, always called, and always cared deeply. He held a special and unique relationship with each one of them. Tim shared his love of reading, education, coin collecting, chocolate milkshakes, and the outdoors with them all! There are qualities of “Pop” now living in each of his grandchildren.
Tim was a graduate of Central High School and the University of North Alabama (Florence State) with degrees in history, biology, and school administration. He was a well-respected faculty member and assistant principal at Rogers High School from 1972-1993. He later served as curriculum and textbooks director for Lauderdale County Schools, retiring in 1997.
Tim Sharp was held in high regard by the students, parents, faculty, and community of Rogers School and the Green Hill community. He was selected to be an Honorary Alumnus of Rogers School as a member of the school’s Wall of Fame.
It was rare to experience someone as selfless and as genuine as Tim. We have all been blessed to know Tim Sharp, to share him, and to love him.
The family deeply appreciates all the prayers, visits and acts of kindness shown during his illness.
Memorials would be appreciated to any organizations or groups that love and help children as Tim did.
Charles Timothy Sharp . . . Rest In Peace.
