Christopher Allan Pritchett, 25, of Pryor, passed away on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 in Spavinaw, Oklahoma. He was born on August 1, 1995 in Claremore, Oklahoma; the son of Mark Pritchett and Heidi (Alexander) Cantey. Christopher had a bright personality and enjoyed spending time outdoors, going fishing, playing pool and cards, and also enjoyed playing the guitar. His nieces and nephews held a special place in his heart and he loved to spend time playing with them. He sure loved his Nana Jeanie; he was her rock. He was a fan of OU Football and the Dallas Cowboys. Above all things, Christopher loved his daughter, Isabella, and spent each moment he could with her, as well as his fiancé, Alyssa. His friends and family will recall the sheer pleasure of his company, how good he made them feel, how free they were to be themselves around him, and how much they will miss him. Christopher had so much goodness, so much capacity to bring happiness to others and such a bright future, the world is a lesser place without him.
