September 25, 1971 ~ August 31, 2022
Daniel Joseph Pritchard, Jr. precious father, son, brother and friend was greeted by his Lord and Savior on August 31, 2022, at the age of 50. Despite any challenges Dan may have faced in this life, he never lost the twinkle in his eye that would light up any room.
Dan was born September 25, 1971, to Kathleen Dawkins and Daniel Joseph Pritchard. He grew up in Baton Rouge, graduated from St. Mary’s Catholic School, Natchitoches, LA in 1989, and from Louisiana State University in 1994 where he was a proud member of Theta Xi Fraternity.
Dan’s unsurpassed charm was magnetic, and he carried an unspoken warmth that was felt by all who knew him. Dan deeply loved the babies and children in his life, who would immediately reach for him when he walked in. They felt his love as well. Dan believed in hard work and carried a strong work ethic throughout his life. Aside from his love and loyalty for family and friends, he will be remembered as the biggest LSU fan this side of Heaven.
