Mike Pruitt

After Russell High, I joined the Marine Corps serving in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and Parris Island, SC. In 1960 I married Virginia Wade (Russell High Class of 1959.) In 1961 we moved back to East Point where our son, Michael, was born. We then moved to Forest Park for 3 years and during this time I was working as a Computer Operator in Atlanta. In 1966 we moved to Longwood, Fl and I started working as an insurance adjuster from which I retired in 2002 after 32 years. We also lived in Cocoa, Cocoa Beach and Oviedo, Fl. The best came in 1997 when we sold everything in Florida and moved to North Pole, Alaska to be with our family, to go hunting, fishing, camping and to enjoy the snow and COLD WEATHER. I am now enjoying RETIREMENT using my snow-machine in the winter and my 4-wheeler in the summer (both for hunting and fishing.)
