Terry Brooks Sharp, 54, received his eternal healing when he went to be with his Lord and Saviour June 13, 2018.

 

He was born February 24, 1964. Terry’s positive spirit helped him to persevere and overcome many obstacles in life. He didn’t let his physical challenges prevent him from accomplishing great things. His faith in God was the source of his strength throughout his life. His favorite hymn was “It Is Well With My Soul”.

 

He graduated from Emmanuel Christian School in Clarksburg, WV, then Cedarville University, OH with a degree in Bio-Chemistry. He earned a master’s degree from John’s Hopkins University in Science & Technical Management. He was currently employed with IQvia research. Terry was very passionate about helping others in life. He devoted his entire career to the development of new treatments for cancer patients.

 

Though he resided in Columbus OH, he was forever a mountaineer and was proud of his WV roots. He loved his family and friends with all his heart.
