Michael Christopher Pratt
Michael Christopher Pratt passed into eternal life on September 15th, the Feast Day of Our Lady of Sorrows, after a long cancer battle. Michael, son of Douglas and Sharon Pratt (nee Tinari) and brother of Sean, was 20 years old. He attended St. Cecilia Elementary School in Stamford and then graduated with High Honors from Greens Farms Academy. He then went on to become a third year student at Villanova University. At Greens Farms Academy, Michael was co-chair of the Community Service Board, a member of the Elder Care Club, co-captain of the varsity tennis team, and a member of the cross country team. He also played guitar in the school band and jazz band. At Villanova, Michael pursued a degree in Business Economics and enjoyed being a part of many extra -curricular activities such as the Young Life Christian Group, Cross- Fit Club, the Community Service Club and the Hiking Club. His faith sustained him and helped him be a focused, successful student. Michael loved history, taking particular interest in historical war battles. One of his favorite trips was visiting Gettysburg. For Michael, summer time meant playing tennis at the Italian Center in Stamford, where his teammates called him "Cap." He found great joy and fulfillment as a volunteer at Abilis, a home for individuals with special needs. When he wasn't studying, helping others or playing music or tennis, Michael could be found outdoors, hiking up hills or paddle boarding in Avalon, NJ, where his family often vacationed. Michael was a huge fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, so it was a great day for him when they won the Superbowl. Michael was a true friend to many, and his precocious, dry sense of humor made everyone want to be around him. He made an impact on everyone who was in his life. As one friend said, "The ripple effect from Michael's touch on our lives will be far reaching." Michael is survived by his mother Sharon, father Douglas, brother Sean of Greenwich, grandmother Phyllis Pratt O'Neal, grandfather Nino Tinari, aunt Kathleen McGuiness (Rory), uncle Eugene Tinari (Suzanne), uncle Christopher Tinari, cousins Alexander and Owen Tinari, Finley and Rory McGuiness. Family will receive friends on Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2021 from 3-8 pm at St. Michael the Archangel Church 469 North St. Greenwich CT. Wednesday, a mass of Christian burial at 11:00 am St. Michael the Archangel Church followed by interment at St. Mary's Cemetery In lieu of flowers donations can be made in memory of Michael to Abilis 50 Glenville St. Greenwich, CT 06831 www.abilis.us/support-us.html and Villanova University (Young Life Chapter) 800 E.
