STEVE SPARKES: MEMORIAL CHESS TABLES

S

tephen N. Sparkes

joined the

Corvallis Fall

Festival Board in the late 1980’s and continued his service to

the festival until his passing in late

2012. During his tenure, he oversaw many areas of the festival including the wine garden, food booths,

and entertainment. He was Board President for many years. During

those board meetings, Steve always made sure to bring a shopping bag

full of popcorn to share to everyone. He kept things lighthearted even

during the most difficult discussions. In 1994, when the Corvallis Area

Chamber of Commerce elected to

“spin-off” the festival from under its

umbrella, Steve was very instrumental in getting the festival incorporated.

Steve worked as an independent insurance agent. He enjoyed all

sports and games, most especially baseball. He was involved in

Corvallis Little League, Kiwanis, and Celebrate Corvallis. In 1991, due

to all of his volunteer endeavors,

Steve was recognized as Junior First Citizen of Corvallis.

To honor over thirty years of his service to the Fall Festival, and

service and friendship to many in the community, the Fall Festival

Board has installed two chess tables at the newly remodeled playground at Central Park in Steve’s memory.
