Jovial with a great sense of humor, quick witted and down to earth best describes Randy Keith Pritchett, 67 who passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Saturday, February 2, 2019.

Randy was a native of Gaston County and was born February 9, 1951 to the late James and Varna (Byrd) Pritchett. One of his favorite hobbies was going on gambling junkets. For therapy he loved to play cards with his buddies in his game room at home. He and his wife Sheila loved to travel and enjoyed fine dining. His greatest love and pastime was spending time with his family. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Randy will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Left to cherish his memories are his wife of 37 years, Sheila Scruggs Pritchett of Gastonia, NC; son, Travis Pritchett and wife, Amanda of Gastonia, NC; two grandchildren, Caroline and Jake Pritchett; a beloved dog Chloe and grand-dog Axl.

Sheila, I am so sorry to hear about Randy. I remember when you were pregnant with Travis and Randy and my Randy would go out for installations in Georgia, SC, NC, etc. It was crazy snowing and here they were driving from Georgia, we always wondered if they would make it home, you know what I mean!!!

Randy was a good hearted soul! Always made me laugh! A little bit on the rough side, but a very sincere person. He said it whether you liked it or not! LOL!! That is what I liked about him!

Take care and wish you and Travis and the grandchildren well!

I remember Randy bringing Caroline and Jake into the library every week. Both the kids truly enjoyed him bringing them in. Randy would sit in the children's room reading the paper or talking on the phone. He loved his grand kids and loved to see then happy. He was such a sweet man and always took time to talk and be friendly. He will be truly missed. My prayers to the family.

Sheila and Travis - we are so sorry to hear of Randy’s passing. My greatest memory was the most genuine kindness that your family shared with us when we moved to Gastonia. Your family had such love for each other and we truly admired you as a family. Hold on to Jesus! Know that we are praying for you all! Love to you!

Randy used to come up to NY to install or repair our dyeing machines.
We became very friendly and would always trade jokes on Facebook. We also kept in touch about our families.
Wish we lived close to each other, we would have had a blast together.
Rest peacefully my friend.
