Gordy a great and kind man. Our spectacular year 2000 New Years Eve celebration in Paris will be in our memory forever as one of our greatest experiences and Gordy and kids where there to help us celebrate. We are so sorry that he had left us so early in life. Ron & Judy.

Gordy was one of the most thoughtful and sharing persons I have known. Always worrying if Bubba had enough jerky and even if you said yes he would send a package to the farm. Lucky enough to have two remembrances of him from his retirement days, a wood burning sign and a knife from when he was working on his "toad sticker" along with photos from him to match. Rest in peace good buddy

My sincere condolences to the family of Gordy Pratt. Gordy and I both worked in the Ashton organizations and began working together in 1989. Gordy was full of life and a "never say die" attitude. We all enjoyed him very much. I have lit a candle at Church and started a Novena for Gordy.
