I've just stumbled onto this obit:

I was able to verify its accuracy by pulling up 2019 obituaries to date at the Writers Guild West website:

Here's some backstory on the gentleman—

—and an informative appreciation:

At his death on 9 January he was aged 106! When Sharp was born on 25 June the American president was William Howard Taft. Earlier that year New Mexico and Arizona had been admitted as the 47th and 48th states; the Girl Scouts of America were founded; on 15 April, the RMS Titanic sank.

Ulysses S. Grant had died only 27 years earlier!

One hundred and six! I'm astonished. RIP, Mr Sharp; you did a good job.
