Age 62, of Springdale, formerly Penn Hills, died on September 1, 2017, in the loving care of his family. In particular, Jim was cared for in his final illness by his sister, Laurie and her family. He was predeceased by parents, George Sharkey and Winnie (Carr) Sharkey. He was the cherished brother of George E. (Karen) Sharkey, Linda (Tony) Aleprete, Laurie (Walt) Hulings, and Judy (Mark) Fries. He will be sadly missed by nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. Jim possessed a great, good heart, a unique spirituality, and extraordinary intelligence. An honors student, he attended Penn State, left to be the 'light man' in a rock n' roll band, and was, over the years, an AT&T salesperson, a steelworker at Edgewater Steel, a warehouseman at Stitches, and more recently, an associate at Puff Tobacco Distributors. Pre-Google, he was our 'go to' guy for sports statistics, politics, history, culture, and 'all things Beatles and the Boss.' Theirs will be the only music played at a future memorial celebration of Jimmy's life. A private man who lived life on his own terms, Jim Sharkey's last instruction was that there be NO VISITATION, PRIVATE BURIAL. Professional Services Trusted to THOMAS M. SMITH FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORY, LTD., (Blawnox).
