Buddy is survived by his two sons, who both reside in Garland, Texas. His oldest son, Richard Thomas Pruitt, is married to Kerry Pruitt.

His youngest son, Troy William Pruitt, gave him four grandchildren, Alisa Pruitt, April Pruitt, TJ Pruitt and Angelica Pruitt, and two great-grandchildren, Ethan Pruitt and Phillip Smith. He loved his boys and all his grands! He looked forward to any time he could spend with family – he especially loved sharing his M&M’s and playing some Texas Hold’em with them.
He is also survived by his sister, Fay Farley and her husband Austin, residing in Tacoma, Washington. He loved his niece and nephews, Cari Farley, Mark Farley and Scott Farley, and their children, Christa Farley, Austin J Farley, Lynix Farley and Zach Hubbard.
