He was the husband of Doris Pruett (deceased). Married for 70 years, they spent most of their lives in Chickasaw, Alabama, where they also raised their family.
Born in Ashville, Alabama, John lived his life as a testimony to God’s love and faithfulness. A veteran of World War II with a long career in the U.S. Postal Service, John was first and foremost a devoted husband and father, as well as a beloved Pa-paw. He was also a loyal friend to everyone he knew or met, and strangers truly were friends he just hadn’t met yet. He was always ready with a joke and a chat, spreading joy and kindness throughout the community.
John was a faithful member of Fountain of Life Church in Saraland, Alabama, a church that he and Doris attended from their marriage to the end of their lives. For many years, John served there as a Deacon and in many other roles. John and Doris were committed to blessing others, giving generously of their time and resources. They were living examples of how to love and care for family and how to always think of others first.
John is survived by his two sons Michael Pruett (and his wife Gloria) and David Pruett (and his wife Patty); three grandchildren Chris Pruett (and his wife Brandy), Brandi Pruett, and Elizabeth Chavez (and her husband Baldemar); and two-great grandchildren, Baylee Pruett and Mason Pruett.
