Colby Todd Pritchett, 25, of Stonewall, passed away Thursday, September 8, 2016 in Stonewall, Mississippi.

He was born on November 20, 1990, to Billy Pritchett and Renae (Smith) Walley in Meridian, Mississippi.

Colby was a lifelong resident of Clarke County and graduated from Enterprise High School in 2009 where he was voted Most Popular by his peers.  An avid sports lover, he participated in football, basketball, and baseball during his time in high school, and still enjoyed spending the weekends playing softball and golf with his friends.  He was a fun-loving son, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend with an infectious smile for everyone he met and a handshake or hug for all of those he called friends.

Colby had an immense love for children, as his greatest joy in life came from spending time with his brothers, Dusty, Caleb, and Kyle, along with his young cousins Gunner, Jagger, Keifer, Zephyr, Cannon, and Riley.  The love and compassion he extended was truly a blessing to all that loved him.  He brought so much happiness to his family and friends and will stay steadfast in our hearts forever.
