March 10, 1972 — June 21, 2024

Worcester

David T. Sharon, Jr., 52, passed away peacefully in his home on June 21 2024, surrounded by his loving family after a valiant battle with leukemia he had been fighting since the young age of 12. David was born on March 10 1972, in Worcester to his loving parents Ann M. (Cunningham) and the late David T. Sharon, Sr., who preceded him in death in 2006.

David's life was dedicated to caring for others as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in Maine and Massachusetts, where he served as a nursing director. David started his career as a nurse at UMass Hospital. His colleagues and patients alike remember him for his immense kindness and compassion, especially towards children who seemed to gravitate towards him.

A graduate of St. Peter Marian Junior-Senior High School in Worcester, David was known for his friendly and caring personality. Determined and dedicated, he had a special place in his heart for his niece, nephews, and his friends' children. His pride and joy came from the moments spent with them sharing his warmth and affection.

Beyond his professional life, David found joy in various hobbies and interests. He loved anything related to Star Trek, fishing, cheering on the Red Sox and Patriots, skiing during his younger years, swimming and body surfing at York Beach, Maine where his family spent many summers. He was a proud member of the Boy Scouts of America Troop 37 based at Christ the King Church in Worcester. His adventurous spirit was evident in all aspects of his life. David's strength and determination showed at a young age as he obtained the rank of Eagle Scout while battling with Leukemia, We knew then that we were amongst someone whose strength was more than most could handle. David's commitment to serving others extended far beyond his work as a nurse.

David T. Sharon, Jr.'s legacy of love, care, and dedication will continue to live on through all those whose lives he touched. He will be deeply missed by his mother Ann M. Sharon of Worcester, his sister Jennifer (Sharon) Derby of Worcester, her children Lee and Mathew Derby, his brother William Sharon of Paxton, his wife Dayna and their children Kaia and Silas Sharon. David also leaves behind close friends who he spent many days helping and providing care for all the young ones in his life.

May he rest in peace knowing that he made this world a better place through his selfless acts of kindness and unwavering commitment to helping others.

A memorial gathering will be planned at a later date.
