My sincere sympathy to the Prowant Family. Mr Prowant, "Pap", was very kind to my son Greg Shultz, while Greg was employed at Hometown. When he was incarerated in Sunbury for a DUI, Pap went down and picked him up and brought him to work. I visited with Mr. Prowant while he was in Kramm's.

We remember POP with great fondness! We shared many a Christmas meal and vacations in the Outer Banks
He had a great sense of humor and will be missed!

I have so many fond memories of Pop. He truly did have a tremendous sense of humor and never failed to make me smile and laugh when I saw him. He also was one of the "Greatest Generations" from WW II. RIP Pop, and my most heartfelt Condolences to Frannie, Rick, Betty, Andy, Justice, and Pop's entire family.....

Frances, Rick, Teresa and families. Many fond memories starting in your back yard and over at the hose house. Later in life at Rockwell. Loved Dick's humor and his occassional temper . . . which I found to be humorous as well! I'm sorry for your loss.
