The GLEMS annual golf outing was designated the Don Sparks Memorial Golf Outing by the 2007 GLEMS Planning Committee in January 2007 in memory of Don who was an instructor, exhibitor and committee member of GLEMS as well as the organizer of the golf outing. Don had a 20-year career with Itron as a district sales manager in the Midwest. Don was elected to the GLEMS Hall of Fame in 2001. His energy and dedication to the industry, his customers and this organization is missed.
