September 30, 1942-December 14, 2020
Kenneth Gordon Henry Pratt, 78, of Barry’s Bay, peacefully passed away on December 14, 2020 surrounded by family while listening to an old Jays game.
Beloved husband of Annice (neé Kenward) for 56 years. Loving father to Beth (Wendell) Henry, Valerie (Bruce) Owen, Rose (Tony) Shulist, Sara Pratt and his cherished dog, Katie. Much loved Grampa to Aidan, Carter & Megan Henry, Emma & Chris Owen, and Camryn & Jack Shulist. Pre-deceased by parents Ken and Evelyn (neé Trimble) Pratt of North Gower, Ontario. Survived by sisters Linda Willis, Donna (Tim) Sutton and pre-deceased by brother-in-law Reg Willis.
Gord moved to Barry’s Bay after purchasing the Ash Grove Inn in 1994. He will also be missed by his Ash Grove family (past and present). Despite his civil engineering experience, he still believed duct tape could fix anything. He could often be found tinkering away at projects or mowing the lawn at the Ash Grove. He was an avid sports fan and will be cheering his Sens and Jays on from heaven. Go Sens Go! In his later years Gord enjoyed spending summers on the river at his trailer in Pine Cliff.
Special thanks to Dr. Malinowski and the incredible angels at the Madawaska Valley Hospice who provided loving care in his final days.
Due to Covid-19 regulations, a private funeral service will be held on Thursday, December 17. Internment and celebration of life to be held in the spring. In lieu of flowers, donations to the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation would be appreciated.
