Sidney Franklin Pritchett Jr. was born on June 30, 1946. He was raised in Petersburg, Virginia through elementary school and then moved to Colonial Heights. He married Donna Fay Berry on April 12, 1969. A proud United States Army veteran, Sidney was stationed in Frankfurt, Germany with his wife. They enjoyed Germany and visiting other countries. After his time with the Army, Sid decided to be a machinist and served his apprenticeship at West Engineering Richmond. He then went to work at Allied Chemical (now Honeywell) and retired after 26 years. He also had a charter fishing boat, the “Dana Lynn,” on the Rappahannock River at Locklies Marina. He had to give up his captain’s license for health reasons. He liked to stay busy, so he decided to repair small engines and lawn mowers in the back of Roger’s Auto on the Boulevard. Sid had a heart transplant in 2015 with recurring complications. He was preceded in death by his mother, Dora Holloway Pritchett and father, Sidney Franklin Pritchett Sr. He is survived by his wife, Donna Berry Pritchett; daughter, Dana Lynn Pritchett and a sister, Sylvia P. Bartlett (Andrew). A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 24, 2022, at the Colonial Heights Chapel of E.
