In the early morning hours of August 3, 2020, Thomas Richard Sharpe of Billings, Montana, passed away at the age of 90. He had been in declining health in recent years. He leaves behind his wife, Darlene Sharpe of Billings, and daughters Sandee Sept (Jerry) of Helena, Tina Taylor (Dana), Kathi Tronstad (Mark) all of Billings, and Tammy Prout (Tammy) of Helena. Additionally he leaves step-daughter, Wanda Lilly (Brian) and step-sons Tim Heath and Morgan Heath. Tom had nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. His special dog, Danny, has been left to the care of Kathy and Mark. Tom was predeceased by his parents, his younger brother Dick, daughter Paula Paulson, step-daughter Cindy Aisenbrey, and his first wife, Dolores (Barrett) Sharpe.

Tom was the first-born of Dora (Bebout) Sharpe and Tom Sharpe. During the hard depression years of his childhood, after his mother died when he was six years old, Tom (and his only sibling, Dick) were raised by a series of extended family members - grandparents and aunts and uncles in South Dakota and Colorado - all pitching in to provide care for the two young boys.

Tom was a Montanan all of his adult years, living primarily in Livingston, Colstrip, and then Billings upon retirement. He was a hard worker and an honorable man with a strong sense of responsibility, fairness, and justice. He worked as business manager for a road construction company, as the superintendent for the city of Livingston, and later as a supervisor for Montana Power Company/Northwestern Energy. During his retirement years he enjoyed some travel opportunities, his regular coffee buddy visits, and the simple pleasures of daily life - including walks with his dogs and conversation with all.

A self-taught man, he had no formal education beyond high school, but learned everything he needed to know to successfully take on ambitious projects. He was a wealth of information, slow to pass judgement, and often sought after for his wisdom and guidance.

He texted frequently while being treated in ICU and his final comments noted his appreciation for his “amazing family” and his wishes that we maintain the family ties. Rest in peace.

No service is planned at the present time.

Tom & Darlene were such good friends and a key part of the Terry Avenue Neighborhood. We have fond memories of our Sunday morning coffees. Whenever we needed a place to stay when we came back to town, Tom & Darlene were so generous with their hospitality. Blessings to you, Darlene. It will be hard without Tom by your side, we love you! I still think of you when I'm working in my garden, did we have fun!? Megan Heil
