We are sad to announce the passing of James Robert Martin “Junior” Pratt at the age of 47.
He was born in London, England and was educated at the private school Box Hill where he excelled in sport. At the age of 12 he decided to try his hand at golf which became the love of his life. He moved to Long Island in 1984 and graduated from Ward Melville HS where he was on the golf team and subsequently won a golf scholarship to Adelphi.
In 1992 he moved with the family to Purcellville and became a member of Loudoun Golf & Country Club. He was mentored by the PGA Professional Jimmy Bogle and became a professional himself in 1995 and an assistant at LGCC.
He was a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles in Purcellville.
James was always willing to help anyone, loved life to the full and with his blue eyes, warm big hearted nature and charismatic smile he easily made many friends. He was dearly loved and will be sorely missed.
He is survived by his parents Miles and Chris, his elder brother Mark, his niece Chloe and nephew Oliver.
James’ service will be held on Sunday April 10th at 11 am at the Hall Funeral Home in Purcellville.
A celebration of his life will be at LGCC at 12.30 after the service. All are welcome.
