Predeceased by his parents Edward and Bertha (nee Watson) Pratt, his sisters Geneva Hedley (the late Ron Rolston and the late Ken Hedley), Doris Leith (the late Harvey Leith), his brothers Mel Harrison (the late Agnes), Charles Pratt (the late Madeleine) and Newman Pratt. From a family legacy in Water Well Drilling, Wally built and operated Pratt’s Well Drilling into the late 1960s. Wally then created and ran Pratt Plumbing and Heating for some 30 years.
