SHARMA, Satyaprakash

September 10, 1931 – Quetta, India
May 26, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta

Satya Sharma of Calgary, passed away on Monday, May 26, 2014 at the age of 82 years.

Born in Quetta, British India, Sharmaji began teaching in Pragpur where he met his lifetime partner and wife of 55 years, Usha. In 1961 they moved to Ethiopia and, in 1965, immigrated to Saskatchewan, Canada. After retirement, they moved to Calgary, Alberta. A proud Canadian and profoundly committed humanitarian, Satya is remembered for the deep personal connections he forged. He is survived by his wife, Usha, and his children Neeroo Sharma-Hall (Cameron) and the Honourable Madame Justice Neena Sharma (Craig), and he will be truly missed by his grandchildren Nicholas and Duncan, and Tyson, Maya and Cole.

A Celebration of Satya’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Calgary, AB, Telephone: 403-243-8200) on Friday, June 6, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. All are welcome. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Canadian Diabetes Association, www.diabetes.ca.

In living memory of Satyaprakash Sharma, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES.

  1. David Beriault :

    Mr. Sharma was my Physics teacher at Oxbow High School in around 1968-69. He was always one on my favorite teachers. He was always very kind and was so very patient with his students who did not always understand physics concepts easily. I am so very sorry to hear of his passing.
    Please accept my sincere condolences.

    Deepest sympathy to Mrs. Sharma, girls and their families. I had the honor of having Mr. Sharma try and teach me physics. I say “try” as I am afraid I did not get it at all. He was a patient teacher and always had a smile and a hello when you met in the hall. He will always be remembered.

    I want to extend our deepest sympathy to the family. I have fond memories of teaching with “Mr” Sharma in Corning, of the three of you attending our wedding, of learning early on that one should never play Bridge with a math person, even if that person doesn’t like the game. Cherish your memories. Ken and Jeanne Hunter, Corning, Sk

    I also had Mr. Sharma for a teacher in the 70’s in Oxbow. Although physics wasn’t my thing, he was a wonderful teacher and a wonderful human being. My sincere sympathy to his family.

    I will never forget his ever lasting smile and his humor-wife and I re-lived that joke about a train station he told us when we visited the house/family way back. Ushaji and Sharmaji visited us in Regina and we will never forget that visit.
    May you rest in peace and may HE give strength to the family.
    Shanti! Shanti! Shanti!

    To Mrs. Sharma, Neeroo, Neena and families.
    On behalf of the Romanowich family I extend our deepest sympathy on the passing of your husband, father and grandfather. Mr. Sharma was most patient with us all, and for me Physics was not my strong suit and the mysteries of Chemistry were a challenge as well. Not so for some of my siblings who excelled under his tutelage.

    on behalf of Monica, Bernie, Larry, Michael and Robert

  14. Heart felt condolences from the Anands’ in India and Deepak Anand and family in the US on the very sad passing away of Sharmaji. He will meet his beloved sister Lila and her loving husband Ernest Anand in Heaven, what a party they are having up there, Talk about playing bridge, the games would be a treat to watch and the post mortem of the hand they played would be a hoot and a holler. Love to you all Usha, Neero and Neena, hopefully we will meet again. Love, The Anands
