  1. I am Larry Pritchett the son of Charles and Dorothy Pritchett. I knew Donald as Beau. My dad always used to take me to the auto parts store. Beau was always nice and seemed like a really happy guy. I always like that about him, the fact he wasn’t grumpy to me. I was pretty young but Beau would always give me stickers for my bike to make it look cool. He was save them for me behind the counter and then pretend he had to look for them when I came in. He always knew what I would be asking for. Thoughts and prayers for he and his family. He was a good Texan.

  2. I am so thankful that I had him in my life for 40 plus years. He will be missed greatly. I love you Papa P!
