James Erik Pryor

James Erik Pryor,  19, of Ennis, passed away Tuesday, June 17, 2014. Erik was born on March 28, 1995 in Ennis, Texas to James Robert Pryor and Kelly Johnston Pryor. He enjoyed spending his time playing the guitar, skateboarding, and playing basketball with his favorite cousin, Nik. Erik touched so many lives in his short time here and was loved by everyone who knew him. He could walk into a room and make everyone smile. If you were sad around Erik, it didn’t last long — he would have you laughing in a heartbeat. He will be greatly missed and forever in our hearts.

He was preceded in death by his ‘Nanny,’ Sandra Johnston, in 2011; and his great-grandmother and great-grandfather, Slim and Mildred Dorton.

Erik is survived by his mother and father, Kelly and Bobby Pryor, of Ennis; great-aunt and great-uncle, Vickie and Michael Ford of Ennis; brother, Adam Pryor and Bridget, of Ennis; maternal grandfather, ‘Papa’ Jack Johnston of Ennis; paternal grandparents, Clifford and Robbie Pryor of Kerens; maternal great-grandmother, Rita Johnston, of Corsicana; aunts, Tammie Johnston and Barney, of Ennis, and Terry Raney of Kemp; cousins, Hailey Moore and Nikilus Costlow, both of Ennis; his beloved pal, Ollie; and numerous friends and family.  

Visitation with family will be from 6 to 8 p.m., on Friday, June 20, 2014, at Corley Funeral Home.

A celebration of life service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 21, 2014 at Corley Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Michael Howard officiating. Interment will follow the service in New Chatfield Cemetery.

Pallbearers will be Adam Pryor, Daniel Arteaga, Ed Hernandez, Jake Hernandez, Matt Martinez, and Dodz Hinojosa.
