Otho Edward Pryor

Graveside service for O.E. (Scooter) Pryor was held at 2:00 pm, Saturday, April 21, 2018 at Cotton Valley Cemetery, Cotton Valley, LA with Mr. Bryan Dauphin officiating.

Mr. Pryor, 86, was born February 3, 1932 and went to be with his Lord and Savior April 8, 2018. A devoted son, husband and father, Mr. Pryor sought little for himself, but gave much to many. He was a life-long resident of Cotton Valley, and member of the First United Methodist Church.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Roy and Vashti; wife of 55 years, Betty; son, Richard; and brother, Charles (Shorty).

He is survived by his son, Larry and wife Karen of Bossier City, LA; daughter-in-law, Gala Pryor Harvey of Granbury, TX; grandchildren, Angela Simpson of Sterlington, LA; Kristi Burgess and husband Jarrod of Granbury, TX; Lisa Keyes and husband Josh of Bossier City, LA; and Richie Pryor and wife Lauren of Granbury, TX; and eight great-grandchildren.

The family requests that memorials be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or to the charity of your choice in honor of Mr. Pryor.

The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the staff of Carrington Place Nursing Home in Springhill, La, Colonial Oaks Nursing Home in Bossier City, LA, and Aime Hospice Care in Bossier City, LA.

2 Timothy 4: 7-8
7I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith. 8Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day – and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
