August 5, 1940 - January 6, 2021
Kenneth Dean Pruitt passed away on January 6, 2021 at Northside Hospital Gwinnett, Lawrenceville Ga. He was preceded in death by his parents, Cecil Harrison Pruitt & Mary Eloise Groover Pruitt & his brother Charles Ezra Pruitt. He is survived by his wife Susan Carter Pruitt, his son Todd Pruitt (Wendy), daughter Kendall Pruitt Eady (Jeff), granddaughters Savannah Pruitt & Emily Pruitt, and his sister Barbara (Freddie) Wilson of Toccoa, GA and his loyal canine companion "Callie". Ken was born on August 5, 1940 in Cumming GA. He graduated from Chamblee High School in 1958. He served a short time in the Army reserves & afterwards he began working at Baxter International where he retired after 30 plus years of service. He met his wife Susan Carter while at Baxter and they just celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary on December 24, 2020. Ken was a Deacon at Sunrise Baptist Church in Lawrenceville where he also taught a men's Sunday school class & sang in the choir. He dearly loved his family, his church & his many friends. If you needed help with anything or someone caring to talk to, you just called Ken. He never told anyone no. He would always make time for anyone & anything that needed to be done. It seems that Ken's purpose in life was to be of service to others & he was loved by all who knew him. He was a light and a joy. If you knew him, consider yourself one of the lucky ones. He was a humble soul. He loved woodworking, working in the yard & visits to the beach. Ken was defined by his deep faith & the ability to see the good in everyone. He looked forward to spending eternity with his Heavenly Father. A memorial service will be held at Sunrise Baptist Church on Saturday February 13, 2021 @ 2pm. The service will be streamed on the Sunrise Baptist Church Facebook page for those who can’t attend.
