Michael Andrew Sparks, 70, of Hughesville, MD, passed away peacefully on July 1, 2023 at his home, surrounded by loved ones.

He retired from active duty but continued to serve the Air Force for another 25 years as a contractor under Son's Quality Food Company where he was a valued and well-liked member of their team.
Michael loved cooking, hunting, fishing, and NASCAR. He was a warrior who survived cancer 7 times before finally succumbing to the 8th. He did not have any children but loved his nieces and nephews as if they were his own. He will be dearly missed.

Michael was a practical man with a generous heart. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the American Cancer Society in his honor.
