Jim Pratt

Sept. 17, 1927-Sept. 16, 2013-

Jim PrattJames Lynn Pratt of Molalla died Sept. 16, 2013. He was 85. He was born Sept. 17, 1927, in Sultan, Wash., to Hattie and William Pratt.

He graduated from Sultan High School and was an outstanding football player. He married Mary Pratt on Sept. 17, 1974.

Jim worked as a sales rep for Nutone Housing Products along with having part ownership in a fix-based operation at the Aurora Airport. His last 14 years of work were with the Oregon State Highway Department in Clackamas. Jim’s two passions in life were flying and golf but he would never turn anyone down in a game of cribbage. Jim appeared to be somewhat of a quiet person but it didn’t take long until the real jokester revealed himself. That aura is what made you want him as a friend.

Jim is survived by his wife, Mary Pratt, of Molalla.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m., on Sept. 23, at Molalla Funeral Chapel. Joanne Petrie will be officiating. Memorial contributions may be made to OHSU Foundation for Parkinsons 1121 SW Salmon St. #100 Portland, Ore. 97205.
