Clint D. Sparks, Sr. – 5/27/2020

May 31st, 2020

Clint D. Sparks Sr.
May 19, 1965 – May 27, 2020

Clint Sparks Sr, of Linwood, drew his last breath in peace at home surrounded by his family on Wednesday May 27th.
Although he was born in Chester, and resided there for many of his 55 years, he claimed the entire county of Delco as his home. He lived in many towns and boroughs around the county in his lifetime, spending the last 16 years in Chichester Township with his wife and children.
Clint’s passions included auto mechanics, where he made his living for 20+ years, riding his Harley with his brother and close friends, camping and fishing with his wife, children and grandchildren, playing Scrabble and knocking back a beer (or more) on the weekends. He also enjoyed music, he could be heard belting out a Jim Croce or Eddie Rabbit tune, or rocking Led Zepplin at full volume (especially when the beer was flowing!)
Those who knew Clint, even for a minute, remember his smile. His favorite phrase was “You have to choose to be happy. It’s not a given; you have to make a choice.” He wore his choice on his face even on the worst of days. He will be remembered most for the stories he told, the lessons he shared, and the love that he gave.
Clint is preceded in death by his parents, William Robert Sparks and Wanda Ruth Spears Sparks, as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Clint is survived by his wife, Megan Sparks as well as his brothers, Karl (Sharon) Sparks of Trainer, John (Candace) Smith of Oklahoma, and Wayne Ritter of New Jersey. His legacy is his children, Jacqueline, Theresa, Brian, Anthony (Michelle), Clint Jr., David and Alexia and his grandchildren Natalya, Brian Jr., Audriana, Alyssa and Amaya. He also leaves behind 5 nephews, 2 great-nephews, 2 nieces and 2 great-nieces and more “framily” than we can count. He never forgot those who contributed to his upbringing, and considered those his “bonus family”, whether blood related or not.
Services and burial are private. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Bringing Hope Home or For Pete’s Sake or the American Red Cross.

    To Megan and your family Will and I want to say your husband was a true friend and gentleman. Like all the previous posts he always made us feel welcome and he was a truly wonderful man. He was a true family man and he loved with all his heart. We are heartbroken 💔. May you find peace in all the people he touched in his life because we were all better for the friendship. All our love to you and your family 🙏💔
