David Daniel Pruitt

David Pruitt, 85, of Ruffin, NC passed away peacefully at his home on Tuesday, May 17, 2022.

A funeral service will be held at New Heights Baptist Church on Friday, May 20, 2022, at 2PM with Dr. Terry Lawson officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service and other times at the family home. Burial will follow the service at Mount Carmel United Methodist Church Cemetery.

David was born in Rockingham County to the late Clarence and Helen Pruitt. He worked over 30 years as a machine operator at Goodyear. He was a devoted, faithful, and lifelong member of New Heights Baptist Church since July of 1962. David was a humble man of his word. He worked hard, took care of his family, and never caused problems for others. He loved nothing more than to get his hands dirty working in the garden or the yard. He push mowed his own grass until he was 81 years old. He enjoyed a simple life, and he will be missed by all who knew him.

Along with his parents, David is preceded in death by his wife of 65 years Shirley Kennon Pruitt and his brother, Wesley Pruitt.

David is survived by his daughters, Janice P. Pinnix and husband, Sherwood; Carol P. Hopkins and husband, David and Wanda French and husband, Mike; special niece, Skilarr Pruitt; grandchildren, Dillon Pinnix and Christopher French; sisters, Barbara Watkins and Mary Woods; brother, Charles Pruitt; and a large and loving group of extended family and friends.

The family would like to offer a special thanks Edward Wilson and to the caregivers, Kim Shields, Crystal Vazquez and Tracee Luttrell as well as Dr. Fusco for his many years of continued care.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in his honor to New Heights Baptist Church Building Fund at 2796 NC Hwy 14, Reidsville, NC 27320.

Janice ,Carol, and Wanda, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. Growing up I just remember how quiet and kind he was. You will be in my prayers as I know there are no words to share that can take the pain away from losing a parent.
