Joe Glen Pruitt

Joe Glen Pruitt departed his earthly body at the age of 58 on September 6th, 2022 in Athens, Texas surrounded by loved ones, after a faithful and long decade battling cancer.

Joe was born in Dallas, Texas to Billy Jo Pruitt and Alice Bernice Pruitt on May 8th, 1964. Joe was full of life. He was well known for the work he did with his hands. He was a carpenter and a master of the trade. When he wasn’t building something from the ground up or remodeling, he was out fishing or hunting. Fishing and hunting were his hobbies, even though he didn’t go as often as he would have liked. Joe should have been a comedian because he could put a smile on anybody’s face with his jokes. Man, he could really make you laugh until you were in tears, even in the last few days of life. He was a faithful and forgiving man that never doubted the plans God had for him. In all the years that he fought cancer, he never gave up, he never questioned anything. He had the attitude of "I got this" and he did. He claimed victory when he saw his Lord and Savior. 


Joe is preceded in death by his father, Billy Jo Pruitt, brother Roger “Buster” Pruitt, and nephews Kevin Jesttes and Jamey Deweese. 


Joe is survived by his mother, Alice Bernice Pruitt and his five sisters; Jo Ann Pruitt; Judy Mezzell and husband; Glenda Jesttes; Brenda Wagner and husband; and Billie Jean Price. Also survived by his children; son, Johnny Pruitt Sr. and wife, Adrienne; daughter, Jennifer Pruitt and husband; son, Jessy Pruitt and wife Lacy; and daughter, Jessica Pruitt. 


Joe leaves behind twenty grandchildren; Hayley and Johnny Pruitt Jr, Angel and Rebeka Coyle, twins Landon and London Pruitt, Jorja Hamilton, Madison Cagle, Jace, Bailey, and Harper Rhea, Jaden, Jacolby, Hayden, Cameron, Jaylee, Jacob, Jasmine, Jayda and Ja’Niyah Pruitt; one great grandson, Jace Pruitt, and another great grandchild on the way. He had numerous cousins, nephews and nieces that will miss him dearly.
