Obituary of Henry Alexander Pritula

Henry Alexander Pritula (Hap), 76, born in St. Catharines, Ontario, March 31, 1947. Leaving us on March 6, 2024 in Hamilton, Ontario, due to complications during surgery, surrounded by his loved ones.

Mourning his loss is his loving wife Margaret (Braun) of 54 years, his daughter Annette Pritula, grandsons Christian and Larson Roethling, his son Geoffrey Pritula and wife Joelle, along with their sons Bradley (Bailey), Geoffrey Jr. (Lindsay), and Ethan Pritula (Emilie). Survived by Margaret’s siblings Richard (Hedy) Braun, Gerald (Barb) Braun, Gord (Nancy) Braun, and Jen (Geof) Cornelsen. Loved by predeceased in-laws Nick and Elizabeth Braun. Predeceased by his parents Henry and Vera Pritula (Dingman) and survived by his brothers Robert (Debbie) and Kevin (Kim).

Hap worked hard his entire life and took pride in his business, Hap’s Home Improvements. He was involved in numerous plays at Central Gospel Temple and enjoyed his time as Men’s Fellowship Leader and being involved as the Sunday School Superintendent. Hap was content to spend his later years with his furry companion, Sam, curled up beside him while playing video games and visiting with family. He had his own online channel where he would stream his adventures playing Zelda. He kept himself busy and despite his illness in later years, he was often on the move. His quiet presence will be missed.
