Compatriots of Iowa SAR and General Society of the War of 1812 in the State of Iowa,
It is with great sadness that I must inform you of the death of fellow member Ron Sharp. I got to know Ron a bit through our organizations. His application and the documentation of his line was complicated and took over 3 years from start to finish. It was helped by several people throughout the entire country.
About 9 months after we hit what appeared to be a final end, a document appeared in the mail and made final approval possible. Ron had a colorful life and shared a bit of it with me be for he sought membership.
Ron also jumped in and became the Chaplain for the GSW 1812 in Iowa.
He will be missed.
His obituary from the Des Moines Register is here.
