The first time I met Mike and your whole family was when I became Sean's Kindergarten teacher. My husband would later coach with Mike at Jim Kelly football camp and as of recent he would take pictures of our son at various wrestling matches and tourneys. Every single time we were in Mike's presence he was friendly and funny and just a great guy. Bless you Barb and boys....Robin Boyle

Mike provided me, along with countless other parents, the preservation of memories from our son's and daughter's sports activities. This is a gift that will just keep on giving as I will look at these pictures in the years to come with fond memories of their high school years, and while reminiscing, will be reminded of Mike's friendly nature and his talent to capture just the right moment. My heart goes out to his family at this time.

I was Mikes first patrol sergeant. Deputy Mike Pratt was an original member of the elite "Night Fighters" of C - Zone. As such he knew our mission was to arrest bad people. Many a night we grappled hand to hand with these characters. Mike was there with us. Mike will forever have my respect. Later Mike would coach my beloved grandson in youth foorball. Even later Mike would be there on the high school gridiron to capture on film those precious moments we all cherish.
Gods's speed my Brother.

Mike lives on thru the thousands of pictures he has taken of our Brockport athletes and cheerleaders. He lives in our homes, on the football field, the basketball court and anywhere there is an athletic event and young people. A truly beautiful person, held in the highest regard by the community young and old. Always a smile, always some comment to make you laugh and brighten your day. We will miss him.....

Dear Pratt Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. At work, Mike was a dedicated, honest professional; during our many conversations he proved to be a great mentor to me and I will fondly remember him for his quirkyness, wit and honesty. I will sorely miss talking with him.

The last thing he said to me was, "take it easy, Brother." Rest easy, Mike.

Please do not hesitate to let me know if I can ever be of any help.

Thoughts and prayers to the Pratt family. Mike was a great man and a HUGE contributor to the Football Boosters organization. I have had the pleasure of working with Mike for the past four years and he will be sorely missed. His contributions to our meetings, quick wit, awesome photos and devotion to the Football organization was greatly appreciated. We will all miss those random "puns" that Mike liked to post on Facebook - always brought a smile to my face and made me laugh - that was just like Mike. I am so sorry for your loss.

Mike's "job" as photographer for Brockport athletics was more than just a position of employment. His presence on the sidelines or courtside of many games was always a dose of encouragement and a testament of his personal as well as community support he always provided. My own sons developed a fondness for and relationship with Mike in those sideline interactions. He loved being around and working with those kids and I can attest first hand that news of his passing will be met with somber expressions and sadness for those who had the opportunity to share time with him. May God bless Mike and guide him on his journey home. God bless Barb, Sean, and Ryan as they continue to make their way in this world.

A couple weeks ago I was thinking of the days of going out for a beer & wings after those Brockport High School football games. Oh boy, our kids & their high school days, interesting times. I'm very glad Ryan & Kacie played football, basketball and lax together otherwise I/we would have never been so often blessed by your presence in our lives. I was going to text you and see if you wanted to get together with a few other "alumni" of what I call those booster club days. Never did & now your gone... you will be greatly missed Mike. My son Kacie and Ryan will be life long friends. A life long connection and memory of you. What great memories you & Barb created with the photography venture. Kyle always had such respect for you & you spoke such encouraging words to Jes. You left forever memories of you and also memories for all those athletes and their families. You served, you brought smiles, calmness, fairness and rational to most everyone you crossed paths with. You rarely said "no" to anyone when they asked anything of you, you worked so hard, tirelessly and selflessly. What great inspiration, positivity and fairness you instilled in so many people and events in our community and beyond. Peace and love to those left behind and may you rest peacefully.
