Morris “Marty” Sharp age 50, of Metairie passed away on Saturday, September 26, 2020. He was born on October 15, 1969, in New Orleans, Louisiana to Royal Edgar Sharp and Norma Rushing Sharp. He was a graduate of Riverdale High School and attended Delgado’s School of Drafting and Autocad. Marty worked briefly as an apprentice draftsman prior to enjoying his career as sales associate for Toys R Us for many years, until the store closed.

Marty’s passion was Star Wars, Star Trek and everything SciFi. He was a collector extraordinaire and considered this his lifelong work. Marty was a member of the Krewe of the Enterprise for many years and often hosted meetings and holiday parties with great pride and joy. He also enjoyed sitting on the front porch, with his adopted pups Lucy and Roscko, in an old wooden chair belonging to his grandmother - rain or shine.
