James Charles Sharp

Print Article

Jim was born on June 12, 1940, and left us on April 18, 2019. According to Google he lived 28,799 days.

Everyone he met saw the kind, gentle and supportive man he was, never a burden, always helpful. He was a wonderful listener, always respecting other’s opinions whether he agreed with them or not.

Jim spent his life doing what he wanted. From an early age he knew he wanted to be a soldier and wanted to live in the mountains. He spent 23 years in the Air Force living in Japan, Okinawa, and England, as well as several locations in the U.S. Traveling by planes, trains and motorcycles he experienced everything each place had to offer, ultimately retiring and coming to Montana for the next 34 years of adventure in one of the most beautiful areas in the world.

As a Mason and Shriner, part of the Sheriff’s Posse and member of the Columbia Space Shuttle Recovery Team, a volunteer firefighter and DAV driver, a local fire dispatcher and computer specialist, he had stories to tell.

He worked hard and taught himself everything he didn’t know. Loving cars, computers, books and nature, he learned to appreciate and value them all. He lived life to the fullest.

With the diagnosis of Goodpasture, a rare disease attacking both the kidneys and lungs, he knew he would eventually lose this battle. He died as he lived … he did it his way.

He is survived by three wonderful daughters, a stepson, 10 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

He was and is loved and will be missed forever.
