Obituary

Frank Pritchard, 69, a resident of Orlando, Florida, died suddenly March 22, 2015. A University of Georgia graduate and Marine Reservist, Frank was a loving husband, dedicated father, treasured friend and cherished Granddaddy. He spent over 25 years as a financial adviser in Atlanta. After retiring and moving to Orlando, Frank spent his days maintaining contact with family and friends. His favorite moments were spent swimming with his granddaughters in the pool. Frank never met a stranger. His intelligence, quick wit and bold character were captivating. And while it could be argued that Frank was his own best audience, he was a very entertaining storyteller whose laugh was nothing less than infectious. His relationships with family and friends were deep, and his honesty and integrity were paired with his eagerness to help. Frank is survived by his wife Amy Parker, son Justin and wife Cindi Pritchard, daughter Betsy and husband Andrew Ryan. His four granddaughters are Greta Pritchard, and Annie, Sarah, and Kate Ryan. A celebration of his life will take place Friday March 27th at 11 a.m. at First United Methodist Church of Winter Park. All are welcome. Memorial donations may be made to The Shepherd Center www.shepherd.org or Winter Park Public Library www.wppl.org.

    I was a "Yankee" that was a neighbor of Frank in the late 60"s. I travelled a lot and Frank often looked in to be sure my wife and baby boys were ok, while I was away from Atlanta for a week at a time. I have never forgotten Frank and the close friendship I had with him. To Frank's family my sincerest sympathy.

    Frank Pritchard was one spectacular human being. He lived well, he laughed heartily and often. He caused others to do so as well. He made us think more clearly, feel more deeply. Never hurtful, he did have knack for getting those who were less thoughtful to see things from a new point of view.
    Smart and knowledgeable, loving and kind, happy and wonderful--that was our Frank.

    Frank was one of my favorite frat brothers. He stood out in a crowd of "regular" guys. Not one to shy away from the task at hand, you just knew he would be a success in life. Sad to hear of his passing.

    Frank and I were friends since college where we were fraternity brothers and roommates. We were in touch regularly and had planned a big weekend together this weekend. Frank had the most positive attitude of anyone I ever knew and he never said anything bad about others (a lesson we all need). Frank was a true renaissance man with unbelievable knowledge about almost any subject or topic. He loved his family, he loved his friends and he loved his God. I will truly miss him but I know my memories of Frank will be treasures of mine for as long as I live. Here's to you, old pal! May the Lord's face shine upon you. See you across the river. Your brother, Byrd Garland.
