Condolences to Family of Finis Sparkman

2017_June_SparkmanPlease join the members and staff of the Music City Drum Corps in extending our condolences to the family of Finis Sparkman, one of our snare drummers who passed away on Tuesday after experiencing complications from an ongoing medical condition.

Finis was a dedicated corps member who enjoyed the friendship and respect of his fellow corps members. We celebrate his life and his love of music performance. He had also chosen to be an organ donor, and we are all grateful for this gift that will benefit many others.

MCDC is extremely honored by a request from the family to participate in the funeral services which will be held at Payne Chapel, 212 Neill Avenue, Nashville, TN 37206 on Thursday, June 22 at noon. Visitation will take place on Wednesday, June 21 from 3-6 at Lewis & Wright Funeral Home, 2500 Clarksville Hwy, Nashville, TN 37208 and on June 22 at Payne Chapel at 11 AM.

If you are able please consider contributing to a fund to assist Finis’ family with the funeral expenses. I’m sure they would be grateful.

We appreciate the tremendous outpouring of support from our fellow drum corps organizations, friends, families, and fans. Please continue to keep us all in your thoughts and prayers.
