Gregory "Greg" Pruitt, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, passed away peacefully from natural causes on July 30, 2023, in Lanett, Alabama. Born on October 2, 1964, in Valley, Alabama, Greg was a man known for his humor, selflessness, and handy skills.
Greg was a talented mechanic by trade, a profession that allowed him to showcase his practical skills and problem-solving abilities. His work was not just a job, but a passion, and he was highly respected within his field. His dedication to his craft was evident in the quality of his work and the relationships he built with his clients and colleagues.
Family was at the heart of Greg's world. He was the loving husband of Rhonda Fling Pruitt for 34 years. Together, they raised three wonderful children: Alan Pruitt (Noble), Carthage, TN, Andrew Pruitt, Lanett, Alabama, and their daughter, Alex Pruitt, also of Lanett, Alabama. Greg's love for his family was immeasurable, but his grandson, Jaxs Pursley, held a special place in his heart. Greg's face would light up at the mention of Jaxs, and they shared many memorable moments at Burger King and local playgrounds.
Greg was preceded in death by his parents, Larry and Patricia Pruitt, and a niece, Andrea Maddux.
Greg was also a cherished brother to Angela Maddux (Randall), Glenn Pruitt (Kate), and Jonathan Pruitt (Ella). His love extended to his several nieces and nephews, who will remember him as a fun-loving uncle who was always ready with a joke or a prank.
An avid fan of the University of Alabama, Greg's enthusiasm for his team was infectious. He also had a deep love for dirt track racing, a hobby that brought him much joy and excitement. Greg was a man who never met a stranger. His friendly demeanor and genuine interest in others made him a favorite in his community.
Greg was a man who lived his life with a spirit of generosity and kindness. He was always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need, embodying the words of Winston Churchill, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." His selfless nature and willingness to help others will be remembered by all who knew him.
In addition to his love for his family and his community, Greg was known for his sense of humor. He was a prankster who loved to make people laugh, and his jovial spirit will be greatly missed. His laughter and joy were contagious, and he had a unique ability to brighten any room he entered.
Gregory "Greg" Pruitt was a man who touched many lives with his kindness, humor, and generosity. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all who had the pleasure of knowing him. His memory will live on in the hearts of those he loved and those who loved him.
Pallbearers will be Ron Ray, Noble Pelotto, Ricky Hamilton, Tony Fling, Keith Bagwell, and Glenn Pruitt.
