Ann and Family,
I appreciate the time, knowledge, comradery, and laughter Mr. Pruitt (Gary) shared with our time working together. Gary's legacy will not be forgot in the industry based on the tenure and mentoring with any one he talked with. Unlike most, Gary never missed a day of including and referencing his wife in conversations, which speaks folds in our line of work. I do apologize for missing the services due to conflicts but know the family is in our thoughts.

Michael and I couldn't believe it. Gary will never be forgotten. He was one of the coolest coworker I've ever had the luxury of working with. I'll miss his sense of humor most. We will continue to pray for you and your family, Ann.

I didn't know Gary very long, worked with him a few times. He came across as a very kind man, always courteous and fair. He never steered me wrong or brushed me off, always having time to help. God bless him.

One of the great guys that I have known. Gary and I enjoyed quite a few years together at work and even slipped out for some fishing. My wife, Georgeann and I truly hated to hear this news. Take care Ann.

Received a text message from Scott Glasscock in WV today saying that Gary had passed away. So sorry to get that news. Really enjoyed working with Gary in Brookhaven and visiting the both of you from time to time when you guys lived out at Zetus. Never met a person that did not love Gary including me. He will be missed Ann.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Gary was a very good man to me, we work together for a while out in the pecos area. He was always willing to help me in any way he could. A true gentleman, I didn't know he was a veteran, if I had known that I would have thanked him many many times, so please as his family know that I appreciate his service more than you will ever know. He will be dearly missed by all his friends and family I'm sure. God bless your family
