Mark Avery Sprouse, 47, of Madison Heights was welcomed into Heaven by Our Lord and Savior Friday, August 9, 2019 with opened arms.

Born November 28, 1971 in Lynchburg, Mark is a son of Julia Pugh Sprouse and the late Shirley Sprouse.

Mark was a devoted and loyal member for 10 years at New Beginning Tabernacle, where he played many roles including door greeter, usher, holding umbrellas for the ladies, driving the church bus regularly and even played with the kids in KIDS ROCK and may have been the biggest kid out of them all. He was employed at W.E.L. and enjoyed hunting, the outdoors, and spending time with his family. Mark was a giver and did so many acts of kindness. His joy was contagious and he will be missed dearly.

In addition to his mother, Mark is survived by his loving wife of 16 years Ellen Sprouse; children, Brandon Staton and his girlfriend Haley, Jillian and Miranda Sprouse; siblings, Steve Sprouse (Judy), Vicky Branham (Don), Amanda Cash, and Renata Sprouse (Whitney); his special nieces, Karly (Terd), Kayley (Stink-pot), Kenzleigh (Fat legs or Baby Satan), Karcyn, Alyssa and a host of extended family members.

The family will receive friends Monday, August 12, 2019 at New Beginning Tabernacle in Madison Heights from 6:00-8:00 p.m. A funeral service will be held Tuesday, August 13, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at New Beginning Tabernacle. Burial will follow at Fort Hill Cemetery.
