Bobby Gene Pruitt

Clinton, AR, 1937 - 2019

Bobby Gene Pruitt, age 82, passed away on July 25, 2019. He was born in Dabney, Arkansas, on May 3, 1937, the son of Leeman Pruitt and Willie (Pack) Pruitt.
He is survived by his wife of 63 years Johnnie (Scarberry) Pruitt, two sisters, Marjorie Carr of Bryant, Arkansas and Arlene Chambers and husband Bob of Benton, Arkansas, and numerous nephews and nieces.
Early in their married life, Bobby and Johnnie moved to Sherwood, Arkansas, where Bobby worked 42 years for Union Pacific Railroad. He was a talented mechanic, with friends and neighbors saying he could "fix anything." His hobby was maintaining and driving racecars, and he enjoyed great success on the racetrack. It was said that Bobby could get more speed out of a Ford than anyone.
Shortly before his death, Bobby and Johnnie moved to Clinton, Arkansas, and Bobby accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior. Knowing that he is in Heaven with the Lord is a great comfort to his family and friends. Bobby was preceded in death by his parents, a brother Loy Ray Pruitt, and a sister Verneda Pruitt.
