Mr. Charles Allen “Chuck” Pruitt, Jr., 67, loving husband, father, and grandfather, passed away Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at his residence. A lifelong resident of Tangier Island, VA, he was born on October 1, 1952 to the late Charles Allen “Charlie” Pruitt and Geraldine Crockett Pruitt.
Following high school, Chuck enlisted in the United States Army to serve his country during the Vietnam war. In 1978, he was honorably discharged and returned home to continue doing what he loved most – working on the water, helping his community, and providing for his family. When Chuck wasn’t aboard the “Lori Robin,” he was spending time with family and friends or watching whatever sporting event was on TV, especially if it was golf or baseball.
Chuck is survived by his wife, Lori “Robin” Pruitt; daughters, Jaclyn Allman and her husband, Greg, of Accomac, VA and Mindy Wallace and her husband, David, of Painter, VA; sisters, Kathy Pruitt and her husband, Lee, and Laura Landon and her husband, Shawn, all of Tangier; granddaughters, Brooklyn Allman and Aubree and Mila Wallace; two nieces; two nephews; a great-niece; several aunts, uncles, cousins; and a town full of faithful friends and neighbors.
A private memorial service will be held at the Swain Memorial United Methodist Church Parsonage yard, which was where Chuck and Robin were married 45 years ago.
