SHARP, PAUL N.
CLYDE— Died peacefully Thursday, May 26, 2011 at his home with his family by his side, after a lengthy, courageous battle with prostate cancer at the age of 68.
Paul was born Oct. 31, 1942 in Lyons, son of Robert and Bernice Bower Sharp. The day after Paul graduated from Clyde High School in 1960, he left for the Army to serve his country. He was stationed in Germany. Upon his discharge from the Army, Paul returned to Clyde, where he began his career with Eastman Kodak Company, a career that spanned 28 years until his retirement in 1991. After retirement, Paul was employed as a school bus driver by the Clyde-Savannah School District and as a postal carrier for the United States Postal Service.

In 2009, Paul and his wife, Carole, were recognized by the Clyde Sports Hall of Fame for “their unselfish efforts, personal sacrifice and everlasting pride for the youths of Clyde-Savannah’. Paul made an everlasting impression on Clyde that will be felt for generations to come.
Paul had a quick wit and was always ready with a good joke or story. He was always ready, willing and able to help anyone in need. Paul enjoyed hunting, fishing, golf, and his New York Giants.
However, his greatest enjoyment came from spending time with his family, most specifically his grandchildren. It was rare that he missed one of their activities.
He is survived by his wife of over 47 years, Carole Riviello Sharp of Clyde; his sons, Kevin (Susan) Sharp of Newark, Tim (Patty) Sharp, Jeff (Deanna) Sharp and Paul Sharp all of Clyde; his grandchildren, Matt, Sarah, Marissa, Kyle, Brian, Tayler and Grant Sharp; his sister, Doris (Maurice) Dzwigal of North Fort Myers, Fla.; brothers-in-law, Donald (Phyllis) Riviello of Clyde, Robert (Eileen) Riviello of Clyde and Rodney (Julie) Riviello of Clyde; sisters-in-law, Nancy Sharp of Fairfield Glade, Tenn. and Liz Riviello of Huber Heights, Ohio, several nieces and nephews; and very special friends, Nelson and Shirley Kise of Seneca Falls.
Paul was pre-deceased by his parents, his brother, Robert; his brother-in-law, Melvin Riviello and his nephew, Gregory Dzwigal.
