Douglas Leroy Pruitt


Douglas Leroy Pruitt, 65, passed away with his children by his side on Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2021.

He is survived by his mother Doris Pruitt of Carlinville; children Derek (Gina) Pruitt of Santa Claus, IN, and Misty (Jason) Dunn of Flaherty, KY; brothers, Greg, Donny, Steve, and Dan (Beth); six grandchildren; several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father, Virgil Leroy “Buzz” Pruitt; and daughter, Crystal Nicole “Niki” Pruitt.

Doug had a way about him that could put a smile on your face. Whether something silly said or done, “Monster Jack” would have his nieces and nephews rolling. To say he was a unique individual is an understatement. He never followed the pack.

He loved to read, write, and consume high quality cinematic masterpieces such as Death Race and Solarbabies. As an avid comic reader, there are no hypothetical Marvel or DC match ups he wouldn’t debate ad nauseam.
