Charles Ronald Pruett “Ron”, 73 of Batesville passed away Sunday, August 15, 2021.  Ron was born August 30, 1947, in Cord, Arkansas to Charles Nathaniel and Pansy Mae (Bennett) Pruett.  After moving to Dupo, Illinois with his parents and brother Steven, Ron started his draftsman training at Rankin Trade School.  This served as the foundation for a successful career beginning in the Engineering Department with Peabody Coal.  He also worked for United Press International and was the former owner of Fred’s Fish House in Mountain Home, Arkansas.  An avid sports fan, Ron was a lifelong supporter of the Arkansas Razorbacks, St. Louis Cardinals and NASCAR.  A keen sense of humor and uncompromising ethics were just two of his many attributes which made him special.  He attended First Methodist Church in Batesville.  Ron was a loving, devoted husband, and a beloved father and brother.
