Cartwright Funeral Homes


PRATT, Kevin P., passed away unexpectedly on September 26th at the age of 34. A resident of Braintree and Quincy, Kevin is survived by his mother Nancy (Ryan) Pratt, grandfather James Ryan, brothers Stephen J. Pratt of Braintree and Colin Pratt of Braintree, sister-in laws Jamie (Kotkowski) Pratt and Brielle (Moorhead) Pratt of Braintree and nieces Madelyn (8) and Charlotte (5) and numerous loving aunts, uncles and cousins. Kevin was born in Weymouth to Nancy and (the late) Stephen F. Pratt, grew up in Braintree, graduated from Braintree High School (class of 2006) and Assumption College (class of 2010).

Kevin spent his childhood running around the neighborhood, looking for and saving bugs, playing and watching sports and spending time with his 2 best friends, soft-coated wheaten
terriers Rocky and Wally, and the Filletiís soft-coated wheaten terrier, Teddy.

Kevin played golf and baseball at Braintree High and was praised by his coaches and peers for his selfless, hardworking, team-first approach. At Assumption, he was involved in intramurals and met a core group who would become lifelong friends.

Kevin had many jobs, in different areas of maintenance, hospitality, animal care and retail. He was always willing to take on the overnight shifts, cover for an employee and made it a point to bond with co-workers. He always tried to find the good in people. Kevinís favorite job was
working maintenance at the New England Conservatory (NEC) under the tutelage of Uncle Mike Ryan, working alongside many of his cousins. Kevin felt valued and appreciated and his family and coworkers loved watching Kevin learn and thrive on the job. Recently, he began walking and watching dogs. Kevinís passion for animals, especially dogs, was evident. He was prepared and organized for the overnights and passionate about ensuring the animals had a wonderful experience. He used these opportunities to teach to his nieces and younger cousins the important virtues of how to treat and care for pets.

Kevin had many interests and hobbies. He was a lifelong Patriots season-ticket holder. He loved going to games with friends and family. He enjoyed basketball, wrestling and the UFC. He loved going to the movies and enjoying late-night snacks with his father and shared a passion for travel and the outdoors with his mother. He spent many weeks in New Hampshire, exploring the outdoors, attending the animal shows and being the fun Uncle for his nieces and younger cousins.

His summers were spent having fun at the pool with the Bennerís and Filletiís, saving multiple frogs a day from the water and surprising his sister in-laws with new amphibious
additions to his secret ecotarium!

Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the New England Wildlife Center, Arrangements under the care of the Cartwright Funeral Home, Braintree.
