Obituary Image


United States Air Force veteran. Liberal minded independent nonsmoker. I don't care much for guns because all too many times they just lead to tragedy in your own home. Anyone owning a firearm should be trained in their use and licensed. Wife: Analou Scharf. Children: Timothy Scharf, Tiana Scharf, and Hannah Scharf. Grandchildren: Matthew Wesley Scharf, Casey Nelson Scharf, and Joshua Aaron Scharf. Great- grandchild: Aiala Scharf. Political: I support Barrack Obama in his quest to turn our country around. Rome wasn't built in a day, this will take some time, so be patient. I love our form of government because it's the best in the world. Sports: Raiders, Lakers, Red Wings Favorite color: Black Favorite cars: Mercedes, BMW, Jeep off road Favorite Quotes: "Never Say Goodbye" "Never believe anything that you hear and only half of what you see" "Live each day as if it was your last, because it just might be." "No one remembers who came in second" "Real men wear black" Work background: Mechanical Design Engineer (Catia) Sargent Controls: Designed valves for the Trident/ Sea wolf submarines for the Navy, Hughes Offshore: Oil field equipment designer North Sea oilfield project, Martin Marietta Aluminum: Aircraft Die Designer GM: Designed components for the Corvette & full-sized pickup, The Boeing Co: Designed emergency lighting for 757 aircraft. Now retired, I enjoy playing my electric guitar, treasure hunting with my Garrett metal detector and traveling to far off lands. My wife is from the Philippines, so we enjoy visits there to see her family whenever possible. Believe me, I'm not done yet, I'm a work in progress and the last chapter of my life is yet to be determined...
