Jarred “The Fridge” Pratt-Miller

(Dec 6, 2000 to Mar 28, 2011)

On the playground Jarred would help friends, let them go first, in general be non aggressive. Not so on the football field. There the gentle giant became “The Fridge” for Kingsway Midget Football. A host of players tried to bring him down but he always scored. He starred at both the offense and defense, so he was on the field the full 60 minutes. Football consumed him, yet it was not his only season. Jarred put time in on the baseball diamond and basketball court, always excelling with the Logan Twp. Teams. He was a tennis champ on the Wii system and cut a rug on Let’s Dance. rn He had a natural talent for sports but was no slouch with academics. He was a straight A student at Swedesboro-Woolwich School District and later at Logan Twp. Elementary School.rn He is survived by his mother Melissa Miller and step father Jonathan Wallace, father Andre Pratt, brothers: Jeffrey Miller, Ray Pratt, Kyle Wintjen, Damion, Devon Primas , Jarel Williams, Jonathan Wallace , Dylan Mosley and a large extended family.rn Come celebrate The Fridge’s 10 years Friday 6 to 8 PM at Daley Life Celebration Studio, Swedesboro. Service Private with burial at Lake Park Cemetery.rnDonations to the Jarred Pratt-Miller Memorial Fund c/o The Bank, 22 Village Center Dr., Logan Twp. 08085 will be appreciated.

    Jarred,rnWords cannot express how we feel at your loss. We miss you Dexter misses your smile and cannot believe that he did not get to say goodbye or hear your laugh again. Our lives will never been the same and we will NEVER forget you. I know most people knew you as the ‘The Fridge” but to us, you were just Jarred, our family, our love one. I wish I could yell and tell you to quiet down or challenge you to a quick dance off in Just Dance, I just wanna see you coming down the street wearing your football jacket with your hands in pocket and walking across the grass. We love you, we miss you and you will be forever in our hearts… Dexter is holding that black PS3 controller until he can challenge you in Black Ops again…Love you

    Melissa and Jonathan: My sincere condolences to both of you and your family. I didn’t know JArred well, but from the few times that I was in his company, Jarred was a well mannered, personable young man. He was very polite and always had a smile on his face. rnrnI know that Jarred’s passing has sadden and emotionally drained your family. But know this, he has gone to a better place, with a great job, he is an angel in Heaven, with GOD. God Bless you and your family

    My most sincere Prayers are lifted for the Life of #66. To his Family, keep your heads held HIGH, dont mourn for Jarred with your head held low, SMILE with him now as he is blessing Heaven with his presence now. To be gone from physical sight happens to all of us, but now in memory, relive his every moment that you cherished with him on EARTH. Opponents on the field, yes we are as I used to coach in Vineland as well, but off the grid-iron we are one big FAMILY. I pray for the strength of the entire KINGSWAY Dragons Midget Football Organization as well to all the players,coaches,team moms,supporters,fans and the entire Clarksboro community in our Loss but forever Heavens GAIN. Jarred went out on the field I as a 2x TCMFL SUPERBOWL CHAMPION(4x if he played as freshman) and that alone speaks volume of his presence here on EARTH. Sleep well and Forever REST-N-PARADISE , Jarred , You will be missed. Be a Captain and Lead the Lineman in Heaven is my Farewell wish to you, See you when I get there Kid………
