Junie served Becton Dickinson in New Jersey from November 11, 1975 for many years until he retired due to health issues in 2008.  His job was his passion and he shared his love for his job with his family and friends.  When he wasn't at BD, Junie loved working security for concerts and other events in New York and New Jersey.  Some of his favorites included The Jackson’s Victory Tour and Grateful Dead.  He shared his passion for music with everyone.  He always had a gift for people he encountered, a trinket,  DVD or CD to show his love or share his passion.  He encouraged others to follow their passion and pursue music.  He wrote songs for friends and family and owned a production company while in New Jersey.  When he returned to Richmond in 2008 he became a member of Grayland Baptist Church and participated in the Golden Age Ministry.

He was preceded in death by his father: Floyd Pritchett, Sr.  Left to cherish his memories are his mother: Leola Pritchett; devoted daughter: Richetta N.

He also spent a lot of time with in laws, Lisa and Jacqueline when they were young children. He always had a kind personality. Once he moved to Richmond, he took on the role as a childcare provider to Madison.  He shared his love of learning and music with her.  His early presence will be sorely missed, but we thank God for sharing Junie with us.  His memory will always linger in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
