John Douglas Sharpe passed away peacefully at Joseph Brant Hospital, on February 12, 2020, at the age of 87. Beloved husband of Wendy for 36 years. Loving father to Darlene Sharpe and grandfather to Tyler Jooris.

An outstanding educator for over 30 years, he will always be remembered by his extended family and many special friends who enjoyed Doug’s calm, gentle manner and quiet witticisms.

Dr. Wright and his team at the Juravinski Cancer Center could not have been more kind and compassionate during Doug’s many treatments there.

A special thank you to those who provided Doug with excellent care and comfort at Joseph Brant Hospital on 6South 200. Doctors Cao and Park along with their team treated him with the utmost respect. Doug and I will be forever grateful.

A future date will be chosen when a true celebration can take place to remember Doug. Go well, everyone.

For those who wish, donations in memory of Doug to Joseph Brant Hospital or Juravinski Cancer Center would be sincerely appreciated by the family. Rest In Peace, my best guy.

Mr Sharpe was my grade 3 teacher in 1971 at Wellington Square School. I remember him being soft-spoken, patient, and a very good teacher. We have lost a lovely man! Mary Orr (DiBiase)

I always enjoyed talking to Doug every day before classes took in as our classrooms were opposite one another, at Kilbride. One year we didn't split the gr. 7 and as new students entered the school, Doug's class ended up at 39. That was a lot of kids in one room and with rotary classes we all shared that experience but not as keenly as Doug. He had a great sense of humour. He and Wendy shared many good times, winning dance competitions on early cruises and enjoying golf, in particular. My condolences to the entire family and most especially to dear Wendy, friend and colleague. Doug & Wendy; a special caring generous couple, always loved and respected by those fortunate enough to rub shoulders with them.

He was one of my favourite teachers! I remember his humour and wit, giggling through class. Thank you for being one of the best!!

Wendy, Lee and I wish to offer you our deepest condolences on Doug’s passing. At our last Kilbride lunch in Dec. Doug looked so healthy, his death now seems so unexpected. The last two years must have been so challenging for both of you.

The Kilbride lunches gave Doug and I many opportunities to reminisce about golf etc. and our early teaching experiences, some as far back as the 60’s. He had so many humorous anecdotes to recall using his exceptional dry wit. He was a great guy. Kilbride lunches won’t be quite the same. John Hughes
