He worked at the Sharon Steel Mill in Farrell, PA for over 25 years before moving to North Carolina in 1993. In North Carolina, he worked for Fluor Daniels corporation before happily retiring. Outside of work, he was heavily involved in Boy Scouts as commissioner and other capacities of the district in Sharon, PA.

So sorry to hear of Mr. Scharville's passing. He was a great man, with an amazing zest for life. I remember fondly being at their house on Oakland Ave for the holidays over the years. It wasn't a good night unless all the Christmas lights blew the fuse a couple of times! Our thoughts and prayers are with the family...Rob and Debbie Goodwin

We were so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. We remember the days we spent together in Little League & our days together, Pat, as crossing guards in Sharon. Our sympathy goes out to you and the kids. Mike was a great guy & did a lot for the kids he worked hard for in Little League & Scouts. Thinking of you at this time, Shirley & Tom (Meatball) Trice
