Theodore Sharik

May 12, 1965 — February 4, 2023

Lima, Ohio

Theodore James Sharik entered the presence of His Savior on February 4, 2023 after a 2 month battle with cancer.

Ted was 57 years old and lived in Lima, Ohio for the past 5 years

Ted was born on 05/12/1965 to William and Patricia Sharik. He graduated from Hinsdale South High School in Hinsdale, IL. Ted loved to work on cars as an adult. He was always willing to give his time to help others with their car needs. He could fix just about anything. He was an avid football fan and a Star Wars Fan. His most recent found love was 3-D printing. He made some impressive 3-D helmets and weapons

Ted was preceded in death by William E. Sharik, Patricia M. Sharik and Terrance G. Sharik

Two Memorial Services will occur to celebrate Teddy's life: Friday, February 24, 2023 at 11 a.m. followed by a light lunch at CrossPoint Community Church, 631 W. Ashton Ave., Lima, OH 45801 and on Saturday, February 25, 2023 at 2 p.m. followed by light refreshments at Harvest New Beginning Church, 5315 Douglas Road, Oswego, IL 60543.

Ted has requested that his body be cremated and that his ashes be spread by his family.

In lieu of flowers, a Teddy Sharik Memorial Scholarship Fund will be set up in his honor. Our immediate goal is to raise $5,000 to help fund a remarkable certification program for "Interpreters for the Deaf" at Sinclair Community College, in Dayton, Ohio. This program was chosen because of both its quality and because this was where over dozens of remarkable women and men were trained and acted as more than caring "bridge builders" for Ted during his 5+ years living in Lima, AND during thr 24/7 service they provided for the final 7 weeks of his life while at St. Rita's Medical Center. Please consider a generous contribution to the life-changing work of those who give themselves to translate sound for those who cannot hear it. Please contact Scott Sharik at on how to contribute.

Arrangements handled by Chamberlain-Huckeriede Funeral Home.  Condolences may be expressed at
