Kerry Prickitt Obituary

Kerry Evan Prickitt, 69, of York, PA, left our lives after a beautiful vacation in Florida with the love of his life on March 20, 2024. He suffered a very brief illness and passed peacefully.

Born March 31, 1954, in Norristown, PA, he was the eldest son of Howard Evan and Iris Colleen (Reichenbach) Prickitt.  He was the adored husband of Lori L. Bollinger-Prickitt, whom he married at Soldier’s Chapel on June 18th, 1991, in Gallatin Gateway, Montana.  Together they were a beautiful team and shared 32 years of friendship, marriage, and the adventure he called Life.

Kerry was raised in Collegeville, Pennsylvania and was a 1972 graduate of Methacton High School. He attended York College in 1989, where he met his sweet Lori.  He began a career in 1974 at Maple Press, assisting in the production of books. He started as a machine operator working on “the quads,” where he made so many lifelong friends. He rose to Supervisor of Case Making/Stamping Department and then on to Supervisor of the Maple Distribution Center. He realized he wasn’t made out for night shift and returned to “the quads” and ultimately retired in 2020 beautifying books as a Stamper Machine Operator.

Kerry honestly appreciated everything about nature: the beauty and science. He was a spiritual man who believed that being in a church made him as much of a Christian as being in a garage made him a car; he practiced his religion around the campfire. Kerry loved being near the water and was once an avid fisherman in all seasons.  He was fond of all animals, especially his dogs.  He was an avid Philadelphia Eagles, Phillies, Flyers, and Penn State fan. We will carry on the Sunday tradition- Fly, Eagles, fly! Last of all, he was an avid reader of obituaries; here you go, Dad.

Kerry loved his family above all; nothing mattered more.

In addition to his wife Lori, Kerry is survived by his truly beloved daughter, Lisa Diane Prickitt of Aspers, PA. He was so proud of his two grandsons in Michigan, Riley Evan Ashton Quinn and Aidan Patrick Sebastien Quinn. He is also survived by two sisters, Denise Renee’ (Prickitt) Whitacre of Seneca Rocks, WV; and Sylvia Eileen Prickitt of Frankfort, KY. His beautiful nieces were like daughters to him, and to them, he was their patriarch.

A memorial service to honor and remember Kerry will be held 11 AM, Friday, March 29, 2024, at the Kenworthy Funeral Home & Crematory, Inc., 269 Frederick Street, Hanover, PA, with Chaplain Adam Leeper officiating.  The family will gratefully receive friends from 10 – 11 AM, Friday, March 29, 2024 at the funeral home.
