Becky, I was so saddened to learn of Buddy's death. He was a sweet, gentle man that loved everyone and that everyone loved. Alan and I have special memories of Buddy and every time we see where GA Tech is playing, he always comments about them being Buddy's favorite team. We are praying for you all and asking God to comfort you as no one else can during this time. Please lean a little harder on God because he's going to always be there and will help you get through these difficult days ahead.

Becky, Timmy , Terry and family, we join you in saying a sad farewell to Buddy Pruitt. Our thoughts and prayers are with you
Here are some wonderful memories of Buddy . We will always remember him as an enthusiastic and caring volunteer with SOGA Area 7. His devotion and untiring commitment to all our Athletes and programs touched many lives. He was always present, even when his health failed and he would quietly cheer on our Athletes. Kind hearted to a fault, his dedication, hard work and sincere affection will be much missed. They don't make them like him any more! We will all miss you Buddy, but your legacy of caring lives on.
