Charlie made St.James Methodist come alive for us Youth. I will never forget him testing the new chapel organ with bravado! Living on the opposite corner of New Hope & James was quite educational from church construction to putting Santa together for Mandy & Jane.
Lots of great memories. Love to hear from any of his family. Call 919-556-7191. God Bless You Charlie...You made a Difference !
I always looked forward when The Sparks would come into Cvs on Peters Creek Pkwy.'s doors. Mr. Sparks always had words of kindness, and I always looked forward to his jokes. My thoughts and prayers are with the family, and Fran. God bless you.
I had the honor of meeting Charlie through a dental cleaning appointment nineteen years ago. His beautiful lighted soul I could recognize immediately. He told me more jokes than I could ever remember (but he did). To my knowledge, a more graceful Man of God I have never met. When I met my husband-to-be, he was the first person that I thought of for our ceremony. God bless you all who love him so dearly, as I do. I will rejoice to one day reunite with him!
Uncle Charlie was a kind gentle man and will be missed.
I was lucky to have met Charlie several years ago when you were visiting Raleigh. I am so happy that I can say, yes I have dined with Charlie Sparks and what a wonderful man he was! He will be missed by many. Love and prayers to you Fran, Valerie, Bill and the entire family.
