Scott G. Hall
It is with great sadness that we share the loss of a great friend to bail, David Earl Sparks. David was a member of the Tennessee Association of Professional Bail Agents (TAPBA) and of the Professional Bail Agents of the United States (PBUS). David passed away on Wednesday, June 17, 2015 at the age of 67.
David was in the bail bonding business for 35 years, most recently as Vice President of Tennessee Bonding Company. He was a graduate of South High School and studied at East Tennessee State University. In addition, he served as a board member and past Education Chairman for the TAPBA for nine years. Present and future agents will carry on David's work ethic and professional impact on the bail industry for many years to come.
David’s parents, Earl A. Sparks and Dorothy Anderson Sparks and infant sister, Judy Ann, preceded him in death. He will be forever missed by his wife, Peggy Scarbrough Sparks; daughters, Kim Cogar and Melanie Gregg; step-daughter, Gina Wells and husband Warren. His grandchildren are Sydney and Peyton Gregg, Skylar and Cameron Cogar and Jep Wells. Also, mourning his passing are his brother, Jim Sparks and wife Jane; sister, Barbara Hilton and husband George and nieces and nephew LeAnn Nutt, Greg Hilton, and Kelly Lowery.
