Thomas E. Sparks

September 3, 2022


Thomas E. Sparks, 59, of Lincoln, passed away on September 3, 2022 at Rhode Island Hospital. Born in Philadelphia, PA, he was the son of the late Byron and Candida (Bonanni) Sparks.

Tom was the owner of Sparks Law, serving Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut - but most of all, the city and people of Woonsocket. As fun as the yellow Hummer and endlessly creative commercials were for Tom, the driving force in life was his family. That, and rooting for a Minnesota Vikings Super Bowl win. His family is confident it will happen eventually.

He is survived by his three children, Anna Deaton and her husband, Alex, of Charlotte, NC, and Ryan and Elyse Sparks, both of Seattle, WA; his former wife, Lisa Parker, of Greenville, RI; his brother, Chris Sparks of Gilbert, AZ; his grandson, Tilden Deaton; and his fiancé, Delia Wilson of Lincoln. He was a beloved father figure to Delia's two daughters Maia and Ava. He will be deeply missed by his family and all who knew him.

Visitation will be held Saturday, September 17, 2022 from 1 - 4pm at the Holt Funeral Home, 510 South Main St., Woonsocket. All other services will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Boston Children's Hospital Heart Fund at, or to the Sojourner House at
