  7. Bobby was one of the first people I met in Waco from The Dwyer Group when I moved here. He was always quick with a smile and a kind word, with a funny sense of humor. Joel Grimes, Bobby, James Calvin, Robbie Woodley, Steve Eisenman and I were all in IT together there. Bobby was always making jokes and making us laugh. Fast forward several years and we ended up working at Profiles International at the same time. Bobby was the same as I remembered him from Dwyer…with a big smile, always asking how you were and again having something nice to say and ensuing pleasant conversation. I am so deeply saddened by your loss. Bobby left a great imprint on those he met. My deepest condolences go out to you all in this difficult time. There are no words to help in this time of sorrow, so I will simply pray for comfort for you all. May Bobby rest in peace.

  8. Prayers for everyone touched by Bobby’s life, but most especially for Tonya and the children.

Bobby was a great man and will be sorely missed.

Their hospitality and becoming friendship was a true blessing for our lives. May God’s love wrap you and comfort your family now and forever. We love you, Pruitts.

  23. You changed my life and I have so many unswered questions. I wish I could have talked to you one last time. I guess I will see you soon..

  24. Greg, Debbie, Allyssa & Alli

    No words could ever adequately express our deepest sympathy for you & your sweet family during this time. Our love & prayers are continuous! A prayer for spiritual strength is found in Ephesians 3:14-20.
    For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven & on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith – that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever.

    We love you!

  25. My prayers and thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

  26. Krystal and Tracy Bailey

    Prayers are with your family in your time of of need. We offer our deepest condolences. We love you guys!

  27. Dina Dwyer- Owens

  28. Kevin & Tammy Smoot

    Bobby, along with Tanya, led us to find our God family in China Spring, while they were out on a motorcycle ride that sunny summer day in 2006. Their hospitality and becoming friendship was a true blessing to us.

  30. I met Bobby at The Dwyer Group. He was always friendly and helpful. My love and prayers go out to Tonya and kids, as well as his extended family and friends.

  31. I had the privilege of working with Bobby at Profiles International, Inc. Bobby was an amazing person and showed amazing faith and character. He was such a soft spoken person with a wonderful attitude and ready and friendly smile. My heart is broken for the family. My prayers and thoughts will be with you all. God bless you and may the Lord hold and carry each of you.

  32. With my deepest sympathy and prayers I write this to Tanya, Daven and, Keaghan. Bobby was a great man with nothing but love for his family and friends I met Bobby while he was working at the Dwyer and we became close friends over the years and I will miss our talks . Most of all I will miss his smile and the Rudy’s BBQ that he would send me. My prayers for Bobby and his family will continue for many years to come.

  33. Thinking of the Pruitt family during this difficult time. Bobby will be missed by many.

  34. Traci Perkins & Family

    Our deepest, heartfelt condolences to you, Tanya, and your children. Praying for peace and comfort in the days to come.

  35. I am so saddened to hear of Bobby’s passing. I worked with him at the Dwyer Group for 3 years. He always had a smile, but he also had something very special about him. He was intelligent and always wanted to learn more. He was a family man who loved Tanya and his kids. He never met a stranger. Bobby will be missed as he had an impact on everyone he met.

  36. May you find comfort in the Lord, Family, and friends at this very heartfelt time. There are no words to express my sadness for you and your family. I hope that the bonds of family will keep you close and bring you some peace. I am truly sorry that you have to endure such a loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you my friend.

I pray for the family’s complete healing and restoration. May God wrap you seamlessly in his arms of compassion and give you peace.

  38. My heart is heavy and my mind is full. Words just can’t express how sad I am to hear about the loss of Bobby Pruitt. Bobby had such deep love and admiration for all that he came in to contact with and I’m sure his energy and love will live on through Tanya and his wonderful children.

    Thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  39. A great loss and tragedy. Bobby was a good friend I met while at The Dwyer Group and was always there when needed. Will deeply miss him. My prayers and love to Tonya and the children. He loved ya’ll so much and so proud of ya’ll. Never missed a chance to talk about ya’ll.

    Our hearts and prayers are with you and your family as you struggle with your loss. Our hope is that Bobby has found peace and that God will comfort you in the days ahead.

  42. Tonya,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. May God wrap his loving arms around you and your family and provide you with comfort and strength.

  43. I am heart broken for ya’ll. Lots of love and prayers going your way. May God grant the peace and comfort you will need in this time of loss and pain.

  44. I am shocked, saddened and riddled with disbelief. I have to think long and hard to think of someone who had such an impression on me. Bobby helped me so much when I was new to Profiles International. But what impressed me was his selflessness, humility, faith and the pride he felt for his family.

    Bobby and his family will be in my prayers for days to come. The world is a lesser place with Bobby’s loss.

  45. Quintin & Gail Guinn

    My sadness can not compair. Bobby was a great friend who showed so much love. I’ve fixed a couple of guitars with the last being him restoring one for his dad “Bill”. Keaghan was so sweet when he came to my house afew weeks ago. I’m sorry that his decision was final. We all have a loss that must be delt with. Life goes on but with a piece that will always be missing. May God bless all.
