Albert Sharrow

Albert Sharrow, 79, of Charlevoix passed away on Thursday December 5,2019 at Munson Medical Center in Traverse City.  He was born on January 12, 1940 in Charlevoix, MI, the son of William and Elsie (McClanathan) Sharrow.

He spent many years working construction for Dick Way. Albert made a lasting impression on everyone that he met, and he treated all people with the utmost respect. Albert never met a stranger.  He loved spending time with his granddaughter, sharing his love of horses and showing people the beauty and uniqueness of Mackinac Island. Also he enjoyed morning coffee and breakfast with his friends, playing card games, especially cribbage, with anyone who would play. His wonderful sense of humor was enjoyed by all.

He was preceded in death by his parents,  his brother, Roger Sharrow and another brother Ronald Lee Sharrow.
