William "Keith" Pruitt

February 23, 1954 — May 15, 2021

Mr. William “Keith” Pruitt, 67, of Readyville passed away on May 15, 2021. He was born in Murfreesboro, TN on Feb. 23, 1954. He was preceded in death by his parents, Leonard Bill Pruitt and Sarah Elizabeth (Sullivan) Pruitt.

Keith grew up in Murfreesboro and was the second oldest of his siblings. He graduated from Central High School in Murfreesboro, Class of 1972. He retired from Bell South with over 20 years of service. An avid outdoorsman, who enjoyed duck hunting in times past, and a lifelong animal lover. His home and the land surrounding provided a greatly appreciated solitude for him for many years. Among the many traits he held were his steadfast loyalty, charming personality, kind eyes, fun loving jokester attitude followed by a good laugh and smile. While he had no children of his own his nieces, nephew, and great nieces and nephews provided him with great joy. They lovingly called him Uncle Keith.
