CHAPIN - Otto Heinrich Prebeck, 86, went to be with his Lord and Savior on November 28, 2019.

Otto was born in Bogen, Germany and immigrated to the United States in 1958. Upon settling in the New York area he quickly went to work for the Bricklayers Union and learning English at night school. Eventually he started his own Building/General Contracting business which he operated successfully for many years until his retirement. Upon his retirement, Otto and his wife of nearly 62 years split their time between upstate NY and Venice, FL, eventually moving to Venice full time. In recent years they moved to Chapin, SC to be closer to their children and grandchildren.

Otto was a faithful Christian and long term member of St. Andrews Lutheran Church in Yorktown Heights, NY, where he also served on the Resource and Building committees. He loved spending time outdoors and socializing with friends and family.

Otto was predeceased by his parents, Otto and Lidwina; his sister, Linl (Lidwina Maier) and brother, Vendolin. Otto is survived by his loving wife, Trudy; sons,Tom and Bill; daughters-in-law, Aderienne and Niove; grandchildren, Nicole, Emily, Tommy, Kenny and Danny; his brothers, Hans and Franz, and their families in Germany.

A memorial service for Otto will be held at the Chapin United Methodist Church on December 14, 2019 at 1:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Hospice Foundation of America as they provided amazing care and comfort as he transitioned from this world to the next.
