Dear Allyn and Family,
I am so sorry to read about Terry's passing. I have known him since he was a toddler, as my mother was a long-time client and dear friend of his precious mother. He was a truly good man - quiet, unassuming, extremely bright, devoted to family, and kind to animals. Any man who loves a cat has a special spirit and is a blessing to this beautiful world. He has left the world too soon and will be missed as one of its gentle souls. You are all in my heart and in my thoughts at this sad time.

I got the pleasure to get to know Mr. Pruitt the last four years. He was very kind and gentle. Mr. Pruitt had always been positive no matter the circumstances. Something you rarely see. I am forever grateful for him and hope one day we will meet again. I am praying that Mrs. Pruitt and the rest of Mr. Pruitt's family finds peace with his passing. RIP Mr. Pruitt.

I was privileged to have worked with Terry and to have flown with him. When he was in the air, he seemed truly at home. Now he lives there. Thank you Terry for all the good memories.

Terry was a good friend and very good engineer . He will be missed . He was a valued source of knowledge and he taught me a great deal. I owe him a debt I can not repay as he provided support in my career at TVA. Thank you Terry.
