December 25, 1980 - January 6, 2018
Patrick Pryor was born into an active duty military family on December 25, 1980 on the U.S. island of Guam, to his parents, Gregory Sr. and Patricia Pryor.
The family got stationed in Germany, and in 1996 Patrick attended General H. H. Arnold High School in Wiesbaden, before heading to Ramstein in 1997, where he graduated with the Class of 1999.
Everywhere Patrick went, he made friends, including many lifelong friendships from his days in Germany. Patrick went through the world making people laugh, and making people adore him, which is evident in the grief at the news of his passing, and in the way that his friends and family came together with donations to help cover the costs of Patrick's funeral arrangements.
Patrick had battled an illness in the last few years of his life. His family and friends, deeply saddened by his loss, were also glad he was no longer suffering.
Patrick passed on January 6, 2018 at home with his parents in Fort Irwin, California. He is survived by his son, parents Gregory Sr. and Patricia, brothers Gregory Jr. and Craig, sister Lavina, many aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family members.
