Talion Sharp’s Dash
On April 21, 1971, Lee Talion Sharp entered the world at 3 lbs, 15 oz fighting for his life from a
rare disease that affected his body from birth, but that did not stop him from living his life to the
fullest, and impacting the lives of everyone who met him. When Talion put his mind to
something, he did it. He graduated from Winnsboro High School, went on to get his Associates
degree in Criminal Justice, and landed his dream job in law enforcement. Due to complications
from Type 1 diabetes, cardiovascular, and gastrointestinal issues, he retired from his job. So the
next thing we knew, Tal had gone to see his doctor to get permission to start karate at Lawson’s
Kenpo Karate Studio in Winnsboro. What a door that opened! “Mom, I don’t care how long it
takes, I’m going to earn a black belt” he said. Again, the warrior in Talion prevailed; he ended
up earning a 4th degree black belt, won 5 state championships, continued to teach karate to
young students, the Tiny Tigers, and was an assistant instructor at the studio.
In 2006 Tal began the fight of his life...he was hospitalized with End Stage Renal Disease, total
kidney failure. He started treatments, dialysis, trial drug treatments, battled a stroke,
rehabilitations, tests, all in preparation for the news in February 2010 he would receive a new
kidney. Once again, Tal the warrior triumphed, with the ability to teach others how to live, love,
experience, accomplish, be kind, inspirational, a teacher, a hero, all with honor and dignity,
grace and great bravery.
Talion lost his final battle January 4, 2019 at the age of 47. God did not promise days without
pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort
for the tears, and the light for the way. Well done, my good and faithful one.
Talion was the son of Carolyn Pinson Carr and Billy Sharp. He was a member of Sharon
Baptist Church, a Fourth Degree Black Belt, a lover of music, and his 1964 bumblebee yellow El
Talion was preceded in death by his father, Billy Merle Sharp and aunts Dixie Todd and Glennis
He is survived by his mother, Carolyn Carr and husband Paul David Carr of Winnsboro;
brothers Chad Smith and wife, Krista of Winnsboro and Clint Smith of Tyler; uncles Cecil Pinson
and wife,Jeanette of White Oak, Mickey Pinson and wife, Beverly of Winnsboro, aunts Kathy
Swann and husband, Charles of Quitman, Debra Miears of Winnsboro and Aunt Jackie of Quitman ,and a large group of cousins, nieces, nephews, and extended family and friends.
Interment will be in Little Hope Cemetery, Winnsboro Texas. In lieu of flowers donations can be
made to Lawson’s Karate Studio Winnsboro Texas for a scholarship in Talion’s name.
Visitation will be held on Monday, January 7th, 2019 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Beaty Funeral Home-Winnsboro 816 W. Broadway Winnsboro, TX 75494. Funeral Services will be held on Tuesday, January 8th, 2019 at Beaty Funeral Home-Winnsboro at 10:00 am, Rev.

Carolyn, I’m sorry to hear about Talion-knew him a long time way back to the Dooley days, he was special person who did not let his medical disabilities affect him from doing his best in everything he attempted. Lots of love goes out to you, Clint and Chad. Judy

Broke my heart to hear of Talion passing. My heart goes out to you Carolyn and I've thought about you every day. I will surely miss seeing his smile when he came in the office.

Talion was always the most positive, most dedicated guy at Lawson's. He was one of the best teachers I ever had.
