Charles R. Sporck, Jr. • March 13, 2021
It is with great sadness that the family of Charles “Charlie” R. Sporck Jr., announces his passing on March 13, 2021. Charlie was a Pensacola native and the son of the late Charles R. Sporck, Sr. and the late Mary Elizabeth Hanson.
Charlie Sporck loved hard. He leaves that legacy to his wife Becky “Seven” Sporck, his daughter’s families Sonyia and David Boydston and Kristina and Franklin Hadley; his son’s families Tracey and Jenna Bradshaw and Blake Butler; 9 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. Charlie was honored by his namesakes, grandson, Justin Tylor Charles Foster, and great-grandson, Lukah Charles Foster. He was preceeded in death by his sister Susie Sporck and survived by his sisters Louise Mastroianni and Sallie Sporck-Eldridge and his niece Mary Elizabeth Mastroianni and great-niece.
Charlie Sporck worked hard. He began his career in the 1960’s as an apprentice in the Machining program at Pensacola NAS. He loved the work he did but was especially proud to help his drafted friends during the Vietnam War by manufacturing military parts for the war effort. Charlie’s brilliant mind, his desire to learn and his solid work ethic motivated him to grow with his industry as he led others into the computer age of CNC Machining. He landed at SunCoast Converters where he helped to invent and perfect high performance transmissions. The SunCoast family of companies gave Charlie the opportunity to combine his passion for guns and machining in the workplace.
Charlie Sporck played hard. He loved collecting, maintaining and shooting guns at the range. He had a passion for our beautiful waters and spent a lot of time boating, swimming, snorkeling and partying on our Emerald Coast. He will be remembered for his loyalty, authenticity, boldness, respectfulness and his passion for life.
He will be mourned by those of us who were lucky enough to be loved by him. Everyone else probably “Got him all wrong, Pal”.
