Sharp, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Michigan, was tragically killed in his Ann Arbor home during a home invasion occurring on June 10th. Professor Sharp joined the U of M faculty in 1969 where he proudly mentored countless studentsfrom incoming freshman to senior graduate students--until his retirement in 2008. He was not only a man of science but of the mind, with a love of history, art, philosophy and world affairs. Robert was a loving and dedicated father to his son David and daughter-in-law Kristine, and proud grandfather of Matthew, 13, and Anika, 11, all residing in New York. On the night of his death, Robert had been planning a cruise with his family. Robert was preceded in death by his loving wife, Maria, who passed away from cancer on April 20th of this year. He will be sorely missed by all who were fortunate enough to truly know him. His son and only child can only aspire to become a man as good as he.
