Jeff Horsfall emailed us with the sad news of Ken's passing.

Ken Sparkes, passed away Monday 2nd January 2023, aged 94.

Ken will be remembered from his days working in the Macclesfield, South Manchester area. First in an External Works Gang where he worked his way up to become gang foreman. Ken then later moved into AN Control before taking early retirement in one of the first release schemes.

Before joining the GPO Ken served in the Military Police, the 'Red Caps' as they were known.

He was a life long supporter of Macclesfield Football Club and was the first person to have a drink in their refurbished bar, with new owners, Rob Smethurst and Robbie Savage. People may have seen him in the TV documentary, ‘The Making of Macclesfield FC’.
