June 9, 1977 – October 9, 2022
It is with great sadness that the Sharma family announces the death of Ajay Sharma. He passed away peacefully on October 9th, 2022 at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg, MB after a courageous battle with cancer, with his loving family by his side. He is survived by his wife (Shiela), father (Surinder), sister (Nisha), twin brother (Vijay), niece (Saaya) and nephews (Jaan, Rajyn and Jai).
Ajay was a very fun-loving, kind-hearted soul who was loved by all, especially by his niece and nephews. He was an amazing husband to Shiela, brother to Nisha and Vijay, son to Surinder and his late mother, Raj. He was a great friend to everyone who knew him. Last but not the least, he was the coolest uncle to Saaya, Jaan, Rajyn and Jai. The big kid inside him put a smile on their faces every time he walked into the room and said, “kiddies!”
Ajay loved spending time with his family and watching sports was his favorite hobby. He spent 45 years in Winnipeg but since he was a kid, he has travelled parts of Canada and the United States. And in the last 6 years of his life, he enjoyed travelling to the Philippines twice, Japan and Korea with his “boo” Shiela.
One of the most memorable things about Ajay was how particular he was with his appearance. His goatee was cut to perfection, his shirt matched his perfectly creased pants and Jordans at all times. He was quite the looker when he put himself together.
Patience was one of Ajay’s most endearing qualities. This patience gave him the strength and motivation to agree to doing surgery after surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments. This patience helped him cope with the pain and sleepless nights he endured. This patience is also the reason why he fought his cancer with such grace and dignity, that he never let anyone feel his hurt and pain. His patience is the reason why his struggle lasted almost 3 years because he never wanted to give up.
A vigil for Ajay was held October 16, 2022 at Thomson “In the Park” Funeral Home, 1291 McGillivray Boulevard, Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Funeral Mass was held Tuesday, October 18, 2022 at St. Gianna Beretta Molla Roman Catholic Church, 15 Columbia Drive, Winnipeg, Manitoba. Entombment in Living Waters Columbarium within St. Gianna’s Church, took place on October 21, 2022.
Ajay is gone but will never be forgotten. He will be forever missed by his family and friends…
