Donald Ray Sparks was born May 5, 1962, in Breckenridge, Texas, to Curtis and Glenna Sparks. Donald spent most of his younger adult life working in the oilfield with Dub West alongside his lifelong friend, Robert Long. He spent his entire life in Breckenridge and was well-known and loved by many. Donald loved the outdoors, whether it was working long hours, spending time with his family, camping, hunting, or most of all, fishing. You could also find Donald cooking out on the grill. One of his signature meals was hot wings. He loved to make them so hot that it would make his son-in-law, Kaleb, cry. Everyone who knew him, knew his love for family time while watching the Dallas Cowboys and enjoying a big barbeque meal. For Donald, his grandkids were his world.

Mr. Sparks was proceeded in death by his parents, Curtis and Glenna Sparks; brother, Claud Allen Sparks; and nephew, Ronnie Reed.

He is survived by his son, Jonathan Ray Sparks and wife Patty of Bend, Oregon, along with their two children, Hagen and Hayln, also of Bend, Oregon; daughter, Jessica Richards of Albany, Texas, and her three children, Ashley, Dalton, and Brooke; daughter, Christina Daugherty and husband Corey of Albany, along with their two daughters, Chloe and Madelynn; daughter Lacole “Coco” Funderburg and husband Kaleb of Breckenridge, and their four children, Pazley, Chase, Kolton, and Harper; as well as his sister, Carolyn Sparks, and brother, David Sparks.
