November 7, 1940 – August 26, 2022
In Loving Memory ~
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ken Pratt on August 26, 2022 after a lengthy battle with pancreatitis.
Ken was born on November 7, 1940, in Neilburg, Saskatchewan to Horace & Margaret Pratt.
Ken leaves behind, the love of his life, Barb (60+ years together), his children Gord (Terry) Pratt, Karen (George) Hackle & Sandy (Wayne) DeBruin, his grandchildren Trevor (Sam Robson) Pratt, Kelly Pratt, Shane Pratt, Amy Hackle, and April Hackle.
Ken is survived by his brother Bud (Jill) Pratt (Australia), his sisters, Shirley Lemcke (d. Sept 12, 2022), Andrea Martin, and Jean Pratt. Ken is fondly remembered by many nieces & nephews on both sides of his family.
Ken enjoyed his 35-year career with BC Forest Service. A big part of his work was his dedication & knowledge in the fight against forest fires. It took him & the family to several towns throughout BC. Ft. Langley, Port Moody, Powell River, Hope, Maple Ridge, Telkwa.
After retiring in Smithers in 1996, Ken & Barb then settled in Prince George in 2006.
Ken was known as one who was always willing to help friends, family & all the curling clubs he was affiliated with over the years. Ken had a great love of curling, hockey (season ticket holder for the PG Spruce Kings), wood working, and helping his family in their various projects over the years.
Ken & Barb enjoyed time at their cabin, camping, motorhome trips across Canada, and their trips to Mexico, England, Ireland & their visits to Bud & Jill, in Australia.
We would like to thank the staff at Prince George hospital for their great care during his many trips over the last couple years.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate any donations to Diabetes Canada or the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
A celebration of Ken’s life will be held on Saturday, October 15th 3pm at Assman’s Funeral Chapel in Prince George. Friends and family are welcome for a social gathering at Karen’s home after the service.
