Paul Dennis Sharon, 81, of Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, passed away unexpectedly on August 19, 2021.
Paul was a graduate of the University of Detroit (Theta Tau, Civil Engineering) and had a distinguished career in local government, serving as a city manager in Illinois, Michigan, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.
In retirement, as a Life Member of the International City/County Management Association, he continued to serve as a mentor to local government officials in Florida, and capped his career of service in Iraq, where he was a proud volunteer in the reconstruction of local governments. Despite a career that took him around the country, he remained a Chicago sports fan until the end, and we are happy that he saw his beloved Cubs win the World Series in 2016.
He is survived by his wife Joan; his children Brian, Maureen, and Kevin; his brother, Dennis; and his 6 grandchildren.
The family held a private service to mark his passing.
In lieu of flowers, his family requests donations be made in Paul’s honor to the Sisters of Mercy, 1437 Blossom Road, Rochester NY, 14610.
