Richard Terrell Pruett II (Rick), age 53 of Northlake, Texas, passed away suddenly on Saturday, June 8, 2019 at Denton Presbyterian Hospital. He was born January 7, 1966 in Corpus Christi, Texas, to parents Richard and Berna Mae Pruett.
Rick married Relinda Wyatt on September 16, 1995 in Purcell, Okla. They welcomed two handsome sons into their lives, Trey on December 14, 1996, and Braden on October 5, 1999.
After graduating from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in 1990, Rick served as a minister for nine years, where he impacted the lives of youth and young adults. In 1999 he began his career in Senior Living Services, working for several senior living companies including Greystone and Life Care Services. In 2018, he became the Executive Director of Ventana by Buckner, where he was involved with the development of the Buckner’s newest senior living community in Dallas, Texas.
Rick was a man who believed in the truths about miracles, perseverance, faith and hope, because he lived them. His consistent goal was to enrich lives by serving, encouraging and challenging others. He lived life with purpose, exemplifying the quote he recently posted, “The purpose of life is a life of purpose.”
