Keevin Randall Sharp, 59, of Amarillo, passed away November 2, 2023.

Memorial services will be at 11:00 AM, Tuesday, November 7, 2023 at Hillside Christian Church Chapel, 6100 Soncy with Johnathan Mast officiating.  Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors.

Keevin was born February 25, 1964, in Pampa, Texas to Alvin and Mary Sharp.  Keevin graduated from River Road High School in 1983.  He began working in his parents’ motorcycle business, Sharp’s Motorsports, as a young boy and continued to work and eventually run the business with his partner and friend, Rick Higgins.  It was a blessing to him to have grown up working alongside his father, Alvin.  He loved the motorcycle business and often said he was tremendously blessed to have a career that he loved.

Keevin was an avid and dedicated athlete.  His passions included mountain biking, RC car racing, and motocross.  He made so many friendships with teammates and competitors.  He always strove to be his best and wanted others to feel the joy and sense of accomplishment that an athletic life can bring.

Keevin loved the Lord and his family above all.  He was a baptized Christian and man of prayer.  He was a devoted son, husband, and father.  He found joy in simple things.  He loved working in his shop and spending time outdoors with his family and dogs.  He had a wonderful sense of humor, was a true and devoted friend, and quietly helped others in their times of struggle.  Words cannot express how greatly he will be missed.

Keevin is preceded in death by his grandparents, Clinton and Zella Stewart, and Letha Sharp; and cousin, Brenda Colson-Downs.

Keevin is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Rita Sharp; children, Stevi Nicole Sharp and Keevin Kole Sharp, both of Amarillo; parents, Alvin and Mary Sharp; sister, Jana Sharp Toliver and her husband Bill of Amarillo; nephew, Connor Shaughnessy of Phoenix, Arizona; niece, Stephanie Brice of Amarillo; In-laws, Craig and Brigitte Johnson of Amarillo, sisters-in-law, Linda Clark and Shawnarie Winn of Amarillo; Barbara Cross of Waco; brother-in-law Craig Johnson Jr. of Amarillo and all of their families; and many cousins and dear friends.

  13. Keevin, words cannot describe the feelings that hit when I got the word of your passing. Growing up with you was a young boy’s dream. You taught me to ride a bike and spent countless days teaching and riding motorcycles with me. Things I still love to this day. As we grew you showed everyone a man can age and mature, but still keep the light of an inner child. Enjoy the long trails and perfect cadence inside the gates of Heaven my friend. You will be forever missed and never forgotten.

  16. Ray and I send our deepest condolences. I first met Keevin back in the racquetball days at Kings Court, and Ray and I connected back with him through our love of ATVs and Ray’s biking. Through all those years he remained a kind and humble man. He is definitely one that we believe God would say “Well done my good and faithful servant.” Ray and Ronay Bach

  18. Alvin/Mary, As hurt as we all are, it cannot compare to what parents experience when a child passes. We love you and send hugs and prayers to you both.

  19. Meeting Keevin in 1995 has had a profound effect on my life just at it has many others. We shared many stories of family life and basically everything guys discuss. It took him a while to get me on the bike but when all my friends asked where the weight went, I proudly stated I had a great mentor from Texas that has me on a program. I’m going to miss his “Howdy” that usually fell on the same stop light on my 15 minute commute to work I am deeply saddened thinking of the loss of such a great man to his family. When I read all the comments I’m honored that he fit me in! What a great guy we had the blessing of sharing! My deepest Condolences to all of you.
