Funeral details announced for Ken Sparkes

Ken Sparkes will be laid to rest in Sydney at 12.45 next Friday, September 30.

Family and friends are invited to attend his Funeral Service to be held in the Camelia Chapel, Macquarie Park Crematorium.
For decades, he was one of the best-known voice-overs in Australia on both radio and television.

Ken died, aged 76, of a heart attack while on a cruise in France, September 11.

Sparkes began his radio career in 1956, aged just 16, as an announcer at 2MG Mudgee.

The Marconi Radio Rover will be broadcasting Ken’s Funeral live from the chapel for listeners and friends who cannot attend. 

“Ken was very good to me over the years and he would love the fact that his final production is an outside radio broadcast,” says Ben Starr. 

The broadcast will be hosted by Ben, Brian Newington and “…students who Ken taught with us”.
