His smile would light up the world and he had a laugh that was contagious. You knew he was always just a phone call away if you needed anything. He will be missed by so many.Please keep his Beautiful Wife Elizabeth Sharp, his two precious kids(9 weeks old & 12 yrs old) and all his other family in your thoughts and prayers.

The crash occurred just after 6 a.m. when the tractor-trailer, disabled and partly in the roadway, became a point of impact for the Ford Explorer. Due to the height difference between trucks and passenger vehicles, underride crashes like this are particularly dangerous, often resulting in severe injuries or fatalities.
