Although belated, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Robert “Bob” and Karin Pratt, formerly of Aitkin and Waukenabo, Minn.
The couple passed away in their home city of Las Vegas, Nev., this past winter. Karin Kay Pratt (formerly Karin Sarff) passed at 81 years old, on Nov. 4, 2018, after a short but failed recovery from an unfortunate but critical fall. Unable to recover from head trauma caused by the fall, she passed away peacefully in her sleep. Robert “Bob” Neal Pratt passed away 16 days later, on Nov. 20, 2018, at 82 years old and after a 15-year struggle with Parkinson’s disease.
All that know and were close to them know that Bob died of a broken heart after the unexpected passing of Karin, the love of his life.
Funeral: The Pratts lives will be celebrated at the Waukenabo Cemetery at 3 p.m. Saturday, July 20, during a graveside celebration service, where Bob will be provided full military honors, to be conducted by the Palisade VFW and Hill City American Legion. Friends and family are welcome to attend and will gather post-service at the Palisade Community Center for celebratory fellowship.
