Donald “Toad” Sharpe, Sr., 57, of Mountville passed away unexpectedly Monday, January 22, 2018. He was the loving husband and best friend of Eva May (Lehn) Sharpe. They were inseparable for the past two decades.
Born in Lancaster, PA, he was the son of the late Shirley (Garreth) Hornberger and the late Ronald Sharpe, Sr. and Janet Sharpe, widow.
Toad was a plumber at Skyline Homes for nearly 22 years. In his spare time he enjoyed yardsaling, haggling and bargain shopping, camping, working on his Harley and going to Bike Week. He also enjoyed gardening, baking, drinking his Mountain Dew and smothering his meals in Heinz ketchup. Toad was known for his elaborate Halloween decorations, parties and costumes. He had a one-of-a-kind sense of humor and could make anyone laugh.
In addition to his wife, Eva, he is survived by seven children: Donald Sharpe, Jr.; Tonya “Sis” Sharpe; Nikki, wife of Jeromy Smith; Daniel, husband of Jenniffer Harsh; Amanda, wife of Dylan Condon; Erica Caldwell; and Christie Ann, wife of Matthew Weaver. He is also survived by 13.5 grandchildren, two brothers – Ronald, Jr., husband of Deb Sharpe, and Scott, husband of Amy Sharpe – as well as a stepsister, Lisa, wife of John Moore.
The family will be holding a Celebration of Life Wednesday, January 31 at 4:00 p.m. at Covenant United Methodist Church (Orange & Mulberry Streets). Please feel welcome to join in celebrating Toad’s life.
