Sharp was an ACT Director from 1991 to 1996, serving as President in 1995.
His consuming hobby was collecting and restoring old barns, and these remain scattered about his 20 acre property in Kent.
He is survived by his wife, two children and grandchildren.
In recent years he was a fierce critic of the ACT board. Along with another former board member, Dave Buckinger of On Yer Bike in Mansfield, Sharp wanted the removal of ACT secretary Anne Killick and opposed supplier/retailers sitting on the board.
