James Randall Prather, 56, of Pelham passed away peacefully at his home on January 13, 2020 surrounded by his family. Born in Danville, VA, he was the son of the late Bobbie Prather and Evie Herbert Prather. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Marion Henry Prather.

James was a very health conscious person. He practiced tai-chi and chi kung and loved to go hiking and walking in the mountains. His favorite quote was “Do what you love and be passionate”. He lived by that quote and it was shown in all of the things that he had a passion for. He loved trucks, jet skis, muscle cars, bass fishing, boating, racing and he loved to ride dirt bikes and ATVs.

James is survived by his loving wife of nearly 39 years, Laurie Prather of the home; son Scott Prather of Pelham; daughter April Prather (Jeremy Hill) of Pelham; and seven sisters, Robin Alcock (David) of Danville, VA, Cynthia Phillips of Milton, FL, Doris Burnham (Donnie) of Pensacola, FL, Lena Hart of Martinsville, VA, Gency Prather of Pelham, Mary Blair (Doug) of Pensacola, FL, and Angie Plocica (Michael) of Pensacola, FL; and nephew, Alex Alcock.

A Funeral Service will be held at 12PM on Thursday, January 16, 2020 at Harrelson Funeral Services Chapel by Rev. Rick Lancaster. The family will receive friends in the Chapel prior to the service from 10:30AM until 11:30AM and other times at the home.
