Edward Newton Pratt
1945 - 2020

Naugatuck, CT Edward Newton Pratt, 75, husband of Pamela Ann (Barstis) Pratt, died October 15, 2020 at MidState Medical Center.

Ed was born on August 19, 1945 in Waterbury, CT a son of the late Edward and Mable (Monroe) Pratt and was raised in Prospect, CT having lived the past 43 years in Naugatuck. He wasn’t much into school, but enjoyed working with his hands and always worked hard to earn his way through life. Ed was a proud U.S. Marine Corps Vietnam Era Veteran.

In addition to working full-time as a mechanic/fueler for Durham School Services, Ed was also very involved with horses, as he was a self- employed horse farrier and spent a lot of time on the farm. He enjoyed hanging out with his wife Pam and scratching tickets, even occasionally winning big a time or two. He enjoyed watching the old westerns and of course, the NY Yankees. Ed enjoyed having fun and was always the guy in the room to crack a joke, even to the very end! In addition to the actual children he leaves behind, he had three dog children that he adored and they will miss him dearly.

In addition to Pam, his loving wife of 43 years, Ed is survived by his daughters and sons in law, Karlene and Mike Falk of Southington, CT and Kelly Pratt and Jake Rushlow of Terryville, CT; his granddaughter, Makayla Rushlow of Terryville, CT and his grandson, Michael Falk of Southington, CT; his sisters and brothers in law, Marilyn and Ernest Lafountain of Terryville, CT and Judy and Wayne Bartlett of Anacortes, WA. Ed also leaves nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. In addition to his parents, Ed was predeceased by his son, Edward John “EJ” Pratt and his brothers, Bobby Pratt and Art Pratt.

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date at the discretion of the family. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Buckmiller Thurston Mengacci Funeral Home, 82 Fairview Avenue, Naugatuck. In lieu of flowers and to honor Ed’s memory, donations can be made to Kenway’s Cause, P.O. Box 935, Windsor, CT 06095.

The Pratt household was a second house for me. Going three after school almost everyday and spending countless weekends and summers there. It was never a dull day in the Pratt household ; Ed’s sense of humor was always present- He ALWAYS knew how to turn your day around real quick. I still hear him saying with cigarette in mouth and scratch ticket in hand, as he walked through the front door “what are you doing here,” and before I could even say hi ED, his next words were always “get out of my chair”! and even occasionally not even saying it, but coming to sit on top of me as if he always knew I needed a laugh.To the family: I am deeply sorry for your loss, he was a great guy and it was such an honor to have known him.
