Funeral services for Paul Lewis Pratt, 18, an Episcopal Academy high school student who died Thursday, May 16, in a car crash in Radnor, are set for Saturday, June 29.

The services will be at 11 a.m. in Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church, 625 Montgomery Ave., said his sister, Christine. Burial is private.

A junior on the academy crew team, Mr. Pratt had been scheduled to row May 17 as part of a four-man varsity squad in the Stotesbury Regatta. After discussion and prayer, the squad decided to compete, with another rower taking Mr. Pratt's place.

Mr. Pratt loved athletics, spending time with friends and family, and techno music, his sister said.

"He was extremely outgoing, funny, and enthusiastic," his sister said. "He was a caring person, super-energetic, and curious."

Surviving, besides his sister, are his parents, Kimberly Lewis Pratt and Joseph Hersey Pratt II; two brothers; three sisters; and grandparents Lynn Haddan and Anthony Lewis.

Donations may be made to the Paul Lewis Pratt Memorial Fund at Camp Chop Point, where he spent many summers as a camper and then counselor, 420 Chop Point Rd., Woolwich, Maine 04579.

Also, Episcopal Academy has established a memorial fund. Donations will go to support crew athletes and, possibly, to purchase a boat. The address is: Paul Pratt '14 Memorial Fund, Episcopal Academy, c/o Paige Peters LeGrand, 1785 Bishop White Dr., Newtown Square, Pa. 19073.
