In honor of Sergeant John Pruitt, Army - Served in World War II and Korean War
Hometown: Minneapolis
(Submitted October 31, 2008 by Cleo Pruitt)

This is in honor of my husband who passed away on August 28, 2007.  He served God and his country in World War II, all the way through the invasion of Normandy and then went on to serve in the Korean War.  He received an honorary discharge from both of the wars.  His life beyond the wars was that of going above and beyond to achieve the high standards that he had set for himself in his job as a Purchasing Director, in his personal life and for his family.  He gave my daughter a great treasure which is the Bible that he carried all the way through World War II. He put God in front and passed away fully experiencing true peace with God.  He is greatly missed by his wife, his children and his grandchildren.  We will see him again soon.
