Matthew Pratt

Pratt, Matthew C.

Matthew C. Pratt, 33, of Oshkosh, went to live with our Father, Saturday, February 2, 2013, at his residence. He was born February 4, 1979, in Waukesha, the son of Richard and Barbara Sebero Pratt. Matt worked for AFK in Ripon, Alliance Laundry Systems in Ripon and most recently Mercury Marine. Matt was known as a big teddy bear with a big heart. He loved his family, tattoos, good food, concerts, and loved having fun. His absence will leave a big gap in our family and a hole in our hearts. We believe he was met at Heaven's gate by his dad and his grandfather and that all three of them are watching over us all and are waiting for us. Right On!

He is survived by his two sons, Richard Pratt II and Patrick Pratt; his mother, Barbara (Butch) Patterson, Oshkosh; one brother, Anthony (Crystal) Pratt, Fond du Lac; two nephews, Jory and Zaine; his maternal grandmother, Anita Sebero, Oshkosh; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Suell and Fern Pratt; his maternal grandfather, John Sebero; and his father, Richard Pratt.

The visitation will be from 3 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, February 7, 2013, at Uecker-Witt Funeral Home. The funeral service will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, February 7, 2013, at Uecker-Witt Funeral Home with Deacon Paul Monzul officiating. Cremation will follow the traditional services.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial is being set up in his son's names.

Uecker-Witt Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. Additional information and guest book may be found at
