DR. DAVID SHARPE
David was born in Pine Falls, Manitoba on September 6, 1929 to Ed and Mae Sharpe, along with siblings, Helen, George, Bill, Gerald, Dennis, Eileen and Hope.
David graduated with a Doctorate in Medicine in 1963, and following his internship and surgical training, chose to establish a family and surgical practice in Portage la Prairie in 1965. He became very well known in the community throughout his many years of practice. David loved being a doctor in Portage along with the challenges and variety that the career provided him.
David is survived by his children: Roxie, Laila and Kevin; their mother Tirzah; his sister Hope; as well as numerous grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
A special thank you for the care and attention provided to David over these last few months by his neighbour and friend Shirley Scanlon; the doctors and nurses at Concordia Hospital and Actionmarguerite St. Joseph Personal Care Home.
A private family ceremony will occur at a later date.
David was very proud of his vegetable and flower gardens, but we know that, in lieu of flowers, he would appreciate a donation in his name to the Winnipeg Humane Society.

Thinking of the family. I have many great memories with the Sharpe’s growing up close by, and it was through Dr. Sharpe that I got my job at Central Medical 41 years ago and am still there, Portage Clinic now. Loved his sense of humour and always told it like it is. He loved to entertain and was great at it. Many fun clinic parties at his house. RlP Dr. Sharpe. You and your family will hold a special place in my heart. ❤️ - Posted by: Lynn Booker (Friend ) on: Sep 20, 2021
Always enjoyed his ribald sense of humour. Treated me for cancer years ago. My eldest has the middle name of David after him. One of a kind. It is too bad there is not more like him in this world. Condolences to his family. Alan Owens - Posted by: Alan Frederick Owens (Patient) on: Sep 18, 2021
I’m so sorry for your loss. I have wonderful memories of great staff parties at his home. He was always the life of the party. My condolences to the family. Brenda Wood - Posted by: Brenda Wood (Worked with Dr. Sharpe) on: Sep 12, 2021
Dr Sharpe was my family physician since I was a child. He delivered all three of my children. Almost. He was taking a cow to a show and just missed the birth of my daughter. But as soon as he could he took off as trailer and cow were in the parking lot waiting for him. He was always there for me. I had the great honour of meeting some of his family at Hecla resort for an anniversary, my thoughts and prayers are with you and all your family during this time. - Posted by: Heather sim (Patient) on: Sep 11, 2021
