Obituary

Prachar, Henry:

Passed away peacefully on September 3, 2020 at Grand River Hospital - Freeport Site Kitchener, Ontario at the age of 85.

Beloved husband of Pauline for exactly 54 years, passing on their anniversary day.

Dear Dad to Tina (Garth) Anderson and Greg (Kelly) Prachar.

Cherished Grandpa to Emma and Rachael Anderson and Kenzie, Eric and Cole Prachar.

Dear brother to Adolph (Sylvia) Prachar.

Predeceased by his parents Joseph and Maria Prachar as well as his brothers Calvin Prachar and Andrew Prachar.

He will also be missed by his cousin Christa Franek.

Survived by his nephews and nieces Rev. Tom and Bob Prachar, Brian (Tracy) Prachar, Nancy Isaac and Andrea (Roger) Kieswetter. He will also be missed by many relatives and friends.

Henry was a generous man with a big heart. He was one of the most patient men you ever would meet and everyone who knew him was blessed by his kindness. Henry worked for many years as an industrial engineer for Uniroyal/Goodrich (Michelin). He was a Blue Jays fan and always made time to watch their games. He was an exceptional husband, dad and grandpa and will be missed by many.

A heartfelt thank-you to the nurses at Freeport Palliative Care Unit for their compassionate care for Henry.

Henry's service was lovely - in keeping with his spirit as a wonderful husband to Pauline, the best of the best kind of father to Greg and Tina, proud and loving grandfather to five beautiful children and a good friend to so many. We loved him so much and send the family our most heartfelt condolences at this awfully sad time. We will miss his warmth, gentle humour and bear hugs. God bless the family in their grief and may Henry rest in peace.

The world has lost a gentle soul and Heaven has gained a saint. Henry was a good and decent man. Quiet and unassuming. A wonderful husband to Pauline and a loving, supportive and encouraging father to Tina and Greg. He is now and forever in God's good care.
May all the wonderful memories you have of your time together be a comfort for you now and in all the times to come.

Dear Pauline, Tina, Greg and family, our heart goes out to you in the loss of Henry. Although he was not my biological uncle, it always felt like he was. When I think of the meaning of kind, gentle, caring, giving, dependable and so many other positive characteristics, Henry’s name is right there. We are all lucky for the ways in which he touched our lives. Wishing you strength and peace. Love and hugs, Shelley and Gilles.
