Pratt, Gregory “Greg” Donald of St. Thomas, passed away suddenly, on Monday, February 10th, 2014, at his residence, at the age of 48. Dearly loved husband of Lori (Barratt) Pratt and much loved father of Dylan and Andrew. Cherished son of the late Douglas Pratt (June 25, 2001) and Rose May Pratt and her partner Wouter Manten of St. Thomas. Loved brother of Donna May Knight (Beaulieu) and her husband Corey of St. Thomas, Gary Beaulieu and his wife Connie and Ruth Pratt and her husband Steve Pattenden of Barrie. Much loved uncle of Shawna, Brennan, Tayler, Tyler, Luc, Nicholas, Owen and great uncle to Hayden. Dear son-in-law of Wanda Barratt of St. Thomas and Al and Daphne Barratt of Abbotsford, B.C. Brother-in-law to Lynn Barratt of St. Thomas and David Barratt and partner Katherine Webber of Chilliwack, B.C. Sadly missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends. Greg was born in Windsor on February 2, 1966. He lived most of his life in St. Thomas. He was a Master Electrician and worked for Ferguson Fancy Beans and formerly of Ford Motor Company of Talbotville. Greg had a crazy sense of humour which was often evident when he sent out his emails. Greg had a deep love of family and his boys Dylan and Andrew were his life. Lori completed him and his presence will be noticeably missed. Greg’s love of family extended to all his family members as they were all extremely important to him. Greg displayed an extremely strong sense of work ethics and couldn’t sit still as there was always something to do or so he thought. He was always willing to lend a hand to anyone. Greg was involved in sports his entire life and encouraged his sons to also love sports. He coached and mentored for the Port Stanley Minor Hockey Association and he also played in St. Thomas. He always stayed true to his “Habs”. Along with coaching and playing fastball and softball he developed a love of golf, as well as fishing and swimming in his leisure. Greg would love to have family and friends over and always entertained with a game of horseshoes or volleyball and while he always kept it friendly he could be very competitive. He was a member of the C.A.W. and a certified Journeyman Electrician (C&M). He was a regular blood donor. Greg was an amazing man, who will be missed by all.
