Robert H. “Bob” Pruitt, age 79 of Centerburg, passed away Monday morning December 30, 2013 at St Ann’s Hospital surrounded by his family.

He was born on September 11, 1934 in Centerburg to the late Rush and Edra (McCraw) Pruitt. He had worked as a self employed carpenter and most recently as a tank truck driver for Union 76.

He was a member of the Centerburg United Methodist Church, Centerburg Conservation Club, and was a former member of the Centerburg Volunteer Fire Department for 20 years. He was a jack of all trades and a master of all.

Bob enjoyed woodworking and woodcarving, traveling in his motor home over the past 17 years spending winters in Texas with his extended winter family and was looked upon by many as a father figure. Bob never met a stranger and could strike up a conversation with a complete stranger and end that as a friend.

He is survived by his bride of 60 years: Mabel (Huffman) Pruitt and they were married September 20, 1953 in Centerburg; children: Cheryl (Don) Rine of Mount Vernon, Mike (Chris) Pruitt of Centerburg, Cathy (Steve) Clutter of Westerville; grandchildren: James (Wendy), Ben (Kim Swihart) and Bethany (Derek Scott) Rine, Sabrina (David) Klinedinst, Brandy Pruitt, Paige and Kendall Clutter: great grandchildren: Macie, Megan and Jackson Rine, Liliana and Lincoln Scott, Callyn Reed, Kinley Klinedinst; sister: Sue (Keith) Colopy of Centerburg.

Preceded in death by great grandchild: Sebastion Scott; brother Elmer Pruitt; sister: Mary Satterfield.

Friends may call at the DeVore-Snyder Funeral Home, SR 3 at 61, Sunbury Saturday January 11, 2014 from 3-5 p.m. with the Celebration of Life service to follow at 5 p.m. with Pastor Vicky Kelley officiating.
