Charles Pracko

December 12, 1940 - October 16, 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Charles Pracko. Born 1940, Charlie lived in the Hamilton/Ewing area for nearly his entire life. He served on the USS Lowry during the Cuban Conflict and was part of the retrieval team for NASA chimps and astronauts on the USS Lowry in 1961. He married his love Darlene in 1965, and they spent over 50 years together. He was an avid fisherman and spent many enjoyable days fishing with his wife, children and grandchildren. Fair winds and following seas dad... We love you three...
