Lyle Pratt

Lyle“Took” Pratt, 96 of Northwood, ND, passed away, surrounded by his family, on August 22, 2022 at NDHC.  Funeral services will be held Saturday, August 27, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. at the Bilden-Askew Funeral Home in Northwood. A visitation will be held from 1:00 p.m. until the time of the service at the funeral home.

Lyle Stanford Pratt was born May 20,1926 to Bert and Bessie (Benson) Pratt in Devils Lake, North Dakota.  He was affectionately nicknamed “Took” as a baby, and the name stuck. The family relocated to Northwood in 1939, after a brief time in Larimore.   Took attended Northwood school and graduated after 8th grade.  He was an accomplished carpenter and built over 60 homes, working first with his father, and later with his brother, Bob. Took married Corinne Thingelstad in 1950. Shortly afterwards, he was drafted into the US Army and served two years in Germany. He was welcomed home by son Randy, and later another son Robin and daughter Carrie joined the family. Corinne passed away in 1972.

Took married Doris Grund in 1981 and gained two additional children, Karla and Jon.

Took enjoyed inventing things in his garage workshop, building and flying kites, spending time with his grandchildren, and cuddling with the great grand babies. His storytelling and sense of humor will be greatly missed.

Lyle is survived by his children: Randy (Barb) Pratt, Mitchell, SD, Robin (Dixie) Pratt, Northwood, ND; Carrie (Tom) McDonald, East Grand Forks, MN; Karla (Kevin) Johnson, Vallejo, CA; Jon (Rhonda) Grund, Laguna Hills, CA; 11 Grandchildren; 17 Great Grandchildren; and his sister Ruth Jacobson, Northwood, ND.

Preceding him in death were his parents Bert and Bessie Pratt, wife Corinne Pratt, wife Doris Pratt, sisters Donna Johnson and Betty Pratt, brothers Robert and Duane Pratt, daughter-in-law Naomi Pratt, and great grandson Howard Enright.
