 Jimmy Lee Sparks, age 59, of Cassville Missouri

             Jimmy Lee Sparks, age 59, of Cassville Missouri passed away Sunday, September 10, 2023 at Mercy Hospital Cassville.

            He was born October 21, 1963 at St. Vincent's Hospital in Monett, Missouri to James and Sharon (Grimes) Sparks. Proceeding him in death were his beloved parents, eldest brother Doyle Ray Sparks, nephew Morgan James Murphy, best friend Leah Moss and his loyal pet Curly. 

            Surviving is his baby sister, Teresa Lynn Boxley and her husband Karroll Boxley of Cassville. His sister-in-law Madonna Sparks. Three nephews; Levi Boxley, Logan Boxley and Dakota Sparks. Six nieces; Jessica Roque, Kamala Harris, Kaylee Long, Emerald Murphy, Tiffany Swanigan and Brittany Sparks. He also has several great nieces and nephews that adored him. 

            Jimmy grew up and attended school in Cassville. In his youth, he enjoyed hunting with his grandfather, father and brother. His many hobbies included mechanics, music, collecting comics, movies and art - specifically drawing. He found joy in caring for any and all animals. Despite his shy demeaner, he always had a story to share, a joke to lighten your day, open arms without judgement and a piece of candy to offer.

            A special thanks to Cox South, Eagle Transportation and Ozark Dialysis; Jimmy truly found a sense of family with the staff during his health journey. He felt love and comfort in his final days at home.

            Graveside services will be held at 10:00 A.M. Monday, September 18, 2023 at Russell Cemetery in Butterfield, Missouri, under direction of Fohn Funeral Home in Cassville. Brother Tony Ball will conduct the services.

            Contributions may be made to Haven of the Ozarks in memory of Jimmy.
