Del was born March 21, 1934, in Spring Creek, Ill., to Lee and Oneida Chamberlin Pruett.

He was married to Ilene Price. She preceded him in death.

Survivors include his three children, Kevin Pruett (Cindy) of Scottsdale, Ariz., Kent Pruett of Phoenix, Ariz. and Kristy Pruett (Andrew) of Las Vegas, N.V.; his sister, Betty Silvey; eight grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.

Del was preceded in death by his wife, Ilene; daughter, Kim Pruett; son, Keith Pruett; and grandson, Taylor Pruett.

Del was larger than life. He filled a room with his unbridled enthusiasm and undeniable charisma. Del will be missed by everyone who was lucky enough to know him.

A skilled entrepreneur with a business acumen rivaled by few, he was the king with the Midas touch. As a motivating football coach early in his career, he polished the type of skills that would later help him build the many successful business relationships that cemented his legacy in his later years.

Del also had many interests and hobbies, all of which he attacked with the same focus, determination and dedication that he gave to everything in his life.

Del loved to golf, he loved to fish and he loved to play poker. Del liked to do these things with the people he loved more than anything. He was happiest when he was surrounded by his family and friends.

Memorial contributions may be made to the American Diabetes Association.

Pallbearers will be Kevin Pruett, Kent Pruett, Ben Pruett, Brandon McCreary, Preston Pruett and Aaron Pruett.
