Obituary of Boyette Lenell Pritchard

Boyette Lenell Pritchard of Chalmette, Louisiana passed away on Saturday, July 25, 2020 at the age of 87.

Boyette was born in Tangipahoa, Louisiana on August 3, 1932 to Elmer Pritchard and Merlie Gill.  A native of Kentwood, Louisiana, he graduated from Spring Creek High School.  During the Korean War, he proudly served as a cook in the Air Force.  Boyette retired from Kaiser Aluminum as a crane operator.

Boyette enjoyed his retirement to the fullest, spending time with family and friends.  He loved life and all the joy it brought.  His two favorite pastimes included sitting in his chair and people watching and planning outings, which always included a meal, for anyone willing to go along.  Boyette never met a stranger, loved conversation, and always wanted visitors to stay just a bit longer.  His big smile and mischievous teasing will be dearly missed by all that knew him.

Boyette is preceded in death by his wife Marguerite Mansour Pritchard; his parents Elmer and Merlie; and a son David L. Pritchard.

Boyette is survived by a son Boyette Michael Pritchard (Stephanie); three grandchildren, Brett Pritchard, Arianna Hebert-Reed (Chris), and Brandyn Pritchard; three great-grandchildren, Tanner, Killian, and Po’Boy; and the LeBlanc family Adrian, Jean, Candace, Paige (Carl), Parker (Robyn), Adalyn, Adrian IV, and Abram.

Boyette will be laid to rest in a private service, officiated by Bro. Timothy Mims, at Pine Grove Cemetery in Picayune, Mississippi.  A Celebration of Life for extended family and friends will be held at a later date.

The family wishes to extend their heartfelt thanks to the nurses and staff at Heritage Manor of Slidell and St. Catherine’s Hospice for their support and care in his final days.
