Rev. Harold ‘Hap’ Pruitt

Rev. Harold A. “Hap” Pruitt breathed his last breath on this Earth and his first in Heaven on Thursday (Sept. 26, 2013) at Mon General Hospital with his loving wife and family by his side. He ran his race well.

He was born on Jan. 8, 1950, in Valley Park, Mo., to Harold A. Pruitt Sr. and Sybill Lavy Pruitt, both deceased.

Hap loved ministering hope and encouragement to the lost and hurting for the past 20 years. The last 9½ years he and his wife were privileged to pastor and serve the precious family at New Life Harvest Center in Pentress.

For 30 years he owned Pruitt Electric. He loved fishing and being with family, especially his kids and grandkids. His passion was people, and he never met a stranger.

He is survived by the love of his life, Rev. LeeAnne Pruitt; their four children, Chris Rhodes and his son Judah, Jimmy Rhodes and his fiancé Krysti Kelly, all of Morgantown, Amanda Rhodes and her three children Ryleigh, Austin and Axxel McFann of Pentress, and Katie Rodriguez and her husband Alex of Austin Texas; and his in-laws, Lee and Inez Risner of Cape Fair, Mo. He also leaves behind his sisters, Michael Gmelin of Kauai, Hawaii, and Patrice Pruitt of Houston, Texas; and many relatives and close family friends, too many to mention.

The family would like to thank Dr. Mark Johnson of Morgantown Surgical Associates and his staff, the staff of 5 South, Oncology, and the many individuals at Mon General Hospital and the staff of Hospice Care Corp. for their care and compassion shown to Hap and his family.

Per Pastor Hap’s request, he will be cremated. The Owen-Neely Funeral Home in Blacksville is in charge of arrangements.

There will be a celebration of his life service at Riverside Apostolic Church at 336 Dents Run Road, Morgantown, on Sunday at 5 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Pastor Harold “Hap” Pruitt Memorial Fund , c/o Huntington Bank, PO Box 65, 5961 Mason Dixon Highway, Blacksville, WV 26521.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
