Harold ‘Hap’ Pruitt

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

He was born 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. For the past 9 1/2 years he and his co-pastor wife were privileged to serve the precious family at New Life Harvest Center in Pentress. He also was owner of Pruitt Electric for the past 30 years. He loved fishing and being with family, expecially his kids and grandkids. His passion was people, and he never met a stranger.

He loved fishing and being with family, especially his kids and grandkids. His passion was people and he never met a stranger.

Surviving is the love of his life, the Rev. LeeAnne Pruitt; their four children, Chris Rhodes and his son Judah, and Jimmy Rhodes and his fiancee 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-loves, Lee and Inez Risner of Cape Fair, Mo. He also leaves behind his sisters, Michael Gmelin of Kauai, Hawaii, and Patrice Pruitt of Texas; and many relatives and close family friends, too many to mention.

The family would like to thank Dr. Mark Jonson of Morgantown Surgical Associates and his staff, the staff of 5 South, Oncology and 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 Hap’s request, he will be cremated. 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, at 5 p.m. Sunday.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Pastor Harold “Hap” Pruitt Memorial Fund, c/o Huntington National Bank, PO Box 65, 5961 Mason Dixon Highway, Blacksville, WV 26521.
