July 18th 1955 - October 31st 2019 - Peter Michael Pratt lived and traveled all over the world, yet he never met a stranger. He took a genuine interest in every person he met and he was an advocate for their success. Peter had a magnetic personality that drew people to him. He freely gave unbiased and concise advice, as well as guidance to all those that confided in him. Peter's passion for others, along with his own experiences allowed him to connect with people from all walks of life. He was forgiving, he was kind, and he was loved by all.

Peter left behind his beloved wife of 45 years - Veronica Pratt, along with number one Grandsons, Elliot and James Smaha, his daughter Karen Smaha, favorite son in-law Craig Smaha, and sisters Shirley Knox and Michele Edwards.

Peter was preceded in death by his parents, Peter and Eileen Pratt and his number one son Niki Peter Pratt.

The Memorial Service will be held at Forest Park Funeral Home, The Woodlands on Saturday, November 9th. The service will begin at 2pm and the reception will follow. In Lieu of flowers, Peter would prefer donations to be made to The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).

Peter and I worked together in the late 90's/early 00's at Integriti Solutions, Inc.'s Kingwood sales office, and later at InterCorr's laboratory facility on Bammel N. Houston Rd., Houston.

Peter was amazing, he knew absolutely everyone that was anyone in the corrosion monitoring business, and then some. His laughter was totally infectious and he never had bad word to say.

He will be truly missed. My deepest condolences go out to Veronica, Karen, and their family.

Pete was always a caring person, who always wanted to help. Pete has so much life experience, I would always look to to him and take in his advice. I will always remember Pete’s great sense of humor. Forever in our hearts. Lots of love.

Peter was my Denny’s breakfast buddy. We would talk and laugh about anything while Peter would joke around with Wendy, his favorite server of all time. During one of our conversations, after a particularly difficult week, Peter told me he thought his guardian angel was tiring. He said he had been near death before and knew what dying was all about. He then added he was not the least bit afraid.
Rest In Peace Peter. We miss you.

I personally remember Uncle Pete as a great man. He lit up a room whenever he entered. One of the earliest memories I had of him was stepping into his lovely home in 2005. He was one of the most welcoming people I have ever met. Even in a conversation, he never let anyone feel left out.

Thank you Uncle Pete for being there for us.

Daniel, Emily, Kate, Lynn and Jason

We remember Uncle Pete as being the most genuine, welcoming and encouraging personality ever. He was always gave the best advice and was always willing to give us a solid piece of advice or help us out in any way - he even helped get Kate her first proper job!

Uncle Pete was such a vibrant and generous person and we will always remember him as being so happy & having long interesting chats with him. We will never forget the endless stories he told us about his life!

Uncle Pete was one of the nicest people you could ever meet & we will miss him so much.

Sending all of our love & hugs, Daniel, Kate & Emily Tyrer x

Pete, you have played such an important role in all our lives. We first met you and Veronica in Abu Dhabi over 30 years ago, and we immediately connected. Over the last 30 years, Veronica and yourself have been like our immediate family. We have so many memories of family time, vacations, nights out and the manny many laughs we had with you both. You truly were a gentleman, very kind and someone we all ‘the Oversbys’ could turn to for advice. You always had a good story to tell, a wealth of information and so so funny. The impact you had on all our lives will be cherished forever. No one can ever replace the void that you have left in our lives today. We truly love you and always will. You will always remain in our hearts forever. May God bless you Pete. Janine, Chris & Family Xx

Peter was a great friend to us , even though he lived so far away he would always remember us with a phone call or a visit. In our younger days we all spend a lot of time together, Both of us having a son and daughter they would play together. We had a great holiday together remembering Peter screaming on the rides 😂 , and how he liked to dance to Motown may he rest in peace xxx

We first got to know Pete & Veronica in Abu Dhabi, many many moons ago. Pete was a fabulous guy, a true gentleman always smiling and never lost his cockney accent. He loved his cars and restoring his Jag was a labour of love, most people would have given up but Pete was so patient and re-built it piece by piece.
He was a great friend and would always make you feel welcome and will always value his friendship.
Condoloncies to Veronica, Karen and family.
Our thoughts are with you all.
