Sharratt, Edmund Joseph Stephen

Passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family at the Guelph General Hospital on Tuesday, March 9, 2021. Edmund Sharratt, in his 85th year, was the beloved husband of Phyllis (Borges) Sharratt for 62 years. He was the loving father of Paul Sharratt and his wife Bonnie, Martin Sharratt and his wife Rita, Jennifer Sharratt, Theresa Sharratt, Belinda Sharratt and late Mary Sharratt (2008). Edmund was the proud grandfather of Nicholas (Marisa), Chris (Jenn), Kyle (Allison), and Jacob. Survived by his sister Clare Burke. Predeceased by 3 brothers and 2 sisters.

Ed, Edmund, Dad & Grandad… he was proud to say that he was a Royal Marine veteran and that they were the strongest fighting men of them all. As a child, he lived through the bombing of Britain and he always sought to build instead of destroy. He was an early convert to the digital world working in the computer field his entire life. He defied a single profession and instead was a programmer, system architect and designer, consultant, and later a professor. He was always eager to share his knowledge and enjoyed watching the success of his many students, friends, and family. Ever the Northerner, he spoke often of his childhood in Northumbria and was known to have the occasional Newcastle Brown Ale when not having a Sunday afternoon Sherry.

He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

I am so sorry to hear that the world, and particularly your family, has lost such a wonderful man. I met Ed many, many years ago. I was teaching summer school and it was my great joy to witness little miracles with Ed's precious daughter. It was a greater joy to see the tears well up in Ed's eyes as he witnessed great signs of hope. Ed was so compassionate and loving and oh so grateful all the time. Such a happy man. I am sorry for all that you have lost . Many blessing to all of you.
With my love, Lynn Kraemer

Sorry for your loss everyone. Other than working with Ed's son Paul for years, I remember Ed from Conestoga College when I was asked to judge his class's Application Projects. He will be missed by many. Brent Horst
