With great sadness we report the death of Nicholas Sharp on August 17, 2007. Nick, age 17, was a camper for twelve years, coming each summer with his family from Maryland during Week 5. After struggling with mental illness for several years, Nick took his own life. He was curious by nature and, as his family shared, was ready to explore the next plane.
Nick was a lover of the natural world with passions for birding, photography, boating, and archery. As a trumpet player, Nick often played the bugle for the camp and his contributions to the community will be remembered with fondness.
He was a thoughtful and kindhearted individual and his life was a gift to all who knew him. His death is a great loss to the Three Mile Island community.
Nick is survived by his mother, Sherry Sharp, sisters Natalie and Nina Sharp, father Greg Sharp, and grandfather Dave Sharp.
Condolences may be sent to the Sharp Family:
