Rev. Charles Pritchett 1899-1981
The Late Rev. Charles Pritchett at the Calvary Baptist Church, Dover, Delaware, Wednesday, October 14, 1981, 1:00 P.M. Rev. William Ridgway, Officiating
Obituary: Charles Pritchett, husband of Elva Pritchett and son of the late Charles and Margaret Pritchett, was born on February 10, 1899 near Cheswold. He departed this life on Thursday, October 8, 1981 at the age of eighty-two, in Kent General Hospital, Dover.
He has spent the most of his life in and around the Cheswold area. Since God in His Almighty Wisdom has seen fit to remove him from our midst, we bow in submission to His Holy Will, thanking God for his eighty-two years of life. After the death of his parents, he was reared in the home of John and Elmira Durham.
He accepted the Lord at a very early age and as he grew in age he learned to depend on Jesus for wisdom and knowledge. He was a member of Emmanuel U.M. Church until 1953 where he was a local minister, and served on the trustee Board. Upon leaving the Emmanuel Church, he helped to found the First Baptist Church of Cheswold and there he continued as a licensed minister until October 23, 1963 when he was ordained into the full ministry. He also served on the trustee board, as church treasurer, was made the father of the church and in 1980 was made an honorary member of the church. He served as acting pastor of First Baptist when the church was without a pastor. He served his God and church faithfully, worked diligently to build the church. No matter what was needed, he always was there to do more than his share in finances. labor and contributed so much spiritually. He loved the songs of the church. A few of his favorite ones were I'll Fly Away, How Great Thou Art, He's Done So Much For Me, and May the Work I've Done Speak For Me.
His winning smile and personality made a lot of friends, who will miss him, and hew was always giving and helping anyone who came to him no matter what, where or when. On December 6, 1919 he was united in holy matrimony with Elva Miller and they shared their lives together for more than sixty-one years. Since God did not bless them with children, they did rear a foster son. His health began to fail several years ago, but he never complained but knew that God was on his side, and he bore his affliction as Job, just waiting on the Lord.
He leaves to mourn their loss: his wife, Elva; a foster son, Claude Pritchett, Jr. of Dover, two brothers, Howard Pritchett, and Presley Durham, both of Dover, five foster grandchildren; nieces; nephews and a large number of other relatives and friends.
