Elton Lee Prouty


- June 26, 2019

Elton was born November 9, 1947, in Watertown, SD, to Brace and Elsie (Yonker) Prouty.  

Raised on the family farm in Hamlin County, SD, he was drafted into the Army during Vietnam.

Once out of the Army, he and his brother, Glenn, started Prouty Construction, and he started building homes and a family with Cathy (Jorgenson) Prouty.  From his marriage with Cathy came 2 sons, Brace and Josh.  Elton was a true jack of all trades, who could build or fix anything.  Although truly gifted in all things construction, he always dreamed of farming.  Elton brought the family West in 1986 to Newell.  Elton & Cathy divorced in 1994.  Elton and Mary Jo McFarland were married in 1996, and welcomed Leslie Marie to the world.  Elton and Mary Jo divorced in 2016.  Elton was a friendly character who always had time to visit with anyone he encountered and will be missed by all who knew him.  His kids were his pride and joy; beer came in second.

Elton Lee Prouty, 71, passed away suddenly on Saturday, June 22, 2019, in Newell, SD.

He is survived by his brother, Glenn (Peggy) Prouty; sister-in-law, Dorothea Prouty; three children, Brace Prouty (Jackie Seyer), Josh (Teri) Prouty, and Leslie (Tim) White; grand-daughter, Madelynn; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Galen; sisters, Arvilla, Dorothy, and  Ed and Janet (Prouty) Tapio; and nephew, David.

Memorial services will be 11:00 a.m. Friday, June 28, 2019, at Kinkade Funeral Chapel in Sturgis with Pastor John Fries officiating.  Inurnment will be at a later date.
