Dakota Ray Sharp passed away Friday, Feb 23, 2018, at the young but wise age of 26.

Family and Friends will gather to celebrate and remember Dakota and his joyful spirit Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at Lake Ridge Chapel and Memorial Designers from 7 to 9 PM. A celebration of life will be Thursday, March 1, 2018, at Lake Ridge Chapel at 3 PM. 

Dakota was born on January 9, 1992 in Amarillo, Texas. He graduated from Coronado High School and attended South Plains College. He began working for Hub City Plumbing and Mechanical and obtained his Journeyman Plumbing License through hard work and dedication. He loved his job and the people he worked with. He was a joy to work with, not only because he was hard working and dedicated, but because he had a comedic spirit that kept everyone smiling. He married Kortney, the love of his life, in May of 2013 after having dated since their freshman year of high school. They were blessed with two beautiful children who he loved more than life itself. He was ornery and loved spending time devising new ways to scare them until they would scream “NO DADDY”! His zest for life was like no other, he never met a stranger and his fondness for story telling entertained everyone around him. He was a wonderful husband, father, son, brother, and uncle, and all who met him, loved his contagious spirit and laughter. If he could give any one advice it would be, “Please don’t pour grease down your sinks!”

Survivors include his wife, Kortney Sharp; daughter, Kinsley and son, Kaeson both of Lubbock; mother and step-father, Xenial and Dean Pittman of Frisco; father and step-mother, Ray and Cheyenne Sharp of Canyon; siblings, sister, Whitney vonBerg and husband, Eric of Lubbock; Sierra and Tatum Sharp of Canyon; brother, Rowdy Sharp of Canyon; step-brother, Austin Pittman of North Richland Hills; step-sister, Amanda Elfervig and husband, Taylor of Dallas; paternal grandparents, Johnny and Paula Sharp, as well as Robert and Donna Pittman; aunts and uncles, Glenn and Ximena Lovett; Rodney and Bionca Sharp; Cory and Jaime Sharp; Gene and Sheryl Pittman; and Radonna Guzman all of Amarillo; nieces and nephews, Emma, Jaelyn, Oliver, and Kaden vonBerg; and Garron Pittman, along with numerous beloved cousins.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Buck and Leola Dunlap.

  7. Mrs Sharp, I met Dakota through his job at Hub City. He did a lot of work for us at our building.
    I want you to know that any time I knew he was coming to do some work for us that I would seek

    that his was. My heart and prayers go out to you and your kids. I’m blessed to have known Dakota!!!

  11. Dear Family,
    I wish to express my deepest sympathy in the loss of your loved one.The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. The Bible’s promises give comfort and hope. “ And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more,neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”.- Revelation 21:4.
    I hope this will give your family comfort and hope. If you would like to know more about what the Bible promises, please visit: jw.org free of charge or obligation.
    With Deepest Sympathy, Kristy
