THURSDAY, September 18, 2014 THE ( OBITUARIES V Sean R. Prchal Sean Robinson Prchal died on Sept. 11, 2014. He left us much too soon and we will miss him with all of our hearts. Sean was born Oct. 2, 1996, in Moses Lake. He was in- credibly kind, always quick with a smile and an encour- aging word. He greeted people with his cheer- ful "goofy-" wave and a honk of the horn. He was the "go-to guy' when people had hurts or worries. He literal, ly bore the weight of other's burdens on his shoulders and in his soul. Sean's entire school career was in Quincy. He started in MOPS (Mothers of Pre- schoolers), then the Winky Bear Christian Preschool and, finally, kindergarten through-high school in the Quincy School District. Ev- ery summer, from kindergar- ten through 8th grade, Sean attended Camp Lutherhaven with his childhood friends. As a young boy and through his teens, Sean was involved in many activities that includ- ed swim team, 4-H (GQ's Steer Clear) and Quincy High School's FFA, where he won several Reserve Champion belt buckles. He played base- ball from the time he could- hold a bat to swing at the T-ball and also enjoyed play- ing football. Scan was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying both fishing and hunting. He loved riding quads and motorcycles and driving his truck. Scan also shared a love of the snow with his morn, and they were great snow-boarding buddies. Scan played the bass guitar, and, although he didn't want people to know it, he had the singing voice of an angel. As a boy, he sang in "Shine: Com- munity Christian Kids Choir." Through the years, many teachers, coaches and leaders invested into Sean's life and influenced him positively. Recently, Scan had begun to restore cars with his dad. They were working on a Jeep for his mom's birthday, as well as an orange '68 Chevy pickup that he dubbed "the pumpkin." Scan had planned to go to college and then re- turn to the farm to join his brother and dad in the day-to- day farming operations. When he was 7 years old, Scan told his parents about his faith in Jesus Christ and his desire to be baptized. They not only approved, but joined him in that experience and were re-baptized them- selves. He put his trust in Je- sus Christ, and we now trust Jesus with the life and eternity of our beloved Scan. We will never forget him! Scan is survived by his par- ents, David and Robin Prchal; his brother Dustin; his grand- mother "Uma" Patricia Law; nine aunts and uncles (along with their spouses); numerous cousins and countless friends. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Ray and Mary Prchal and "Boompa" Jerry Law; his uncle Jim Pr- chal; his aunt Barbara (Prchal) Horton and his cousin Joseph Weinand. In keeping with Sean's gen- erous spirit, his family was thankful to support the organ donors program with the do- nation of Sean's corneas. A celebration of life service will be held at 10 a.m. on Sat- urday, Sept. 20, 2014, at the Quincy High School Gymna- sium. The family has request- ed that memorials be made in Sean's name to the Quincy Booster Club for the Quincy Baseball, Pearly Whites, Fat Stock and the FFA.
