William M. Sparks 1945 - 2023
My father, William (Bill) Sparks, passed away sadly but comfortably Sunday morning, surrounded by his family. He was a kind and loving man with a heart of gold. There are so many who loved him and will feel this loss – in the business world and far beyond. He would say thank you to all of his small-business customer for their support, and he would wish everyone peace and happiness. I have run the William M. Sparks Insurance Agency for many years now, and I will continue to run it just as my father did and as he would want me to do. On behalf of my family, I thank you all for your kind words, well wishes and support at this time. --- Danielle Sparks

Between 2005 and 2014, fatal, unintentional drownings in the U.S. averaged over 3500 annually. More than one out of five drowning victims was reported to be 14 years old or under.
