Obituary

Kristopher Pruett 20 yrs old. Kris was born on May 8th, 1999 at King's Daughters Hospital to Marcia Cullison. When Kris was 6 months old William Cullison came into his life and raised him as his own with Marcia Cullison from that moment on. Kris is preceded in life by his Great Grandfather Sonny Hawthorne, his Great Grandmother "Froggy" Hawthorne, his Great Grandfather Tony Greger, his Great Grandmother Joan Sanderson, Great Grandfathers John Julian Sr and Kenneth Sanderson and Great Uncle John Julian Jr. Kris is survived in life by his Mother Marcia Cullison and Charles Shelton, Father William Cullison and Decolia Bush, His “little” sister Kandice Cullison, his sister Kaylee Cullison, his brother Kameron Cullison, his "brothers and lil sis from another mother" Lane McAdoo, Dillyn McAdoo and Trinity McAdoo. His girlfriend Makaylah Morris and his beautiful 2-year old babygirl Kamryn Lynn, whom he loved with all his heart. His cousin ("Mark-Mark") Mark Fulcher and family. His Aunt Katy and Uncle Eddie and nieces and nephews in Colorado, MeeMaw Patty in Denison, Tx. His Lil' Papa and MaMaw in Troy, Tx. and a Grandmother of Belton, Tx. Along with many other Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and countless friends. Kris attended Splendora Pre-k through Kindergarten, then moved to Oklahoma where he attended 1st and 2nd grade. He then moved to Texas where he attended school in Harker Heights. Kris then moved to Troy, where he attended 6th grade through his Junior Year. Kris was a part of many organizations while he was in Troy such as playing Fall Ball for the Troy Trojans and the Troy Flex Baseball Team which went to state. Kris then joined many other organizations during his HS years such as being in the Troy HS Marching Band, FFA, The Archery Team and the Troy Tennis Team. Kris was also a member of the Troy Volunteer Fire Department which was his greatest accomplishment, because it gave him a sense of belonging and a purpose. Kris then transferred to Splendora, TX where he attended Splendora High School his SR year. Kris was a member of the Splendora Tennis Club. Upon graduation, Kris went to Jobcorp and earned his Welding Degree. Kris loved racing fast cars, trucks and basically anything on wheels. Ever since Kris was in Kindergarten, there was a running joke about him and it was that "Kris could sell ice to an Eskimo,” and it all started because one day in kindergarten Kris came home with money and his father and I asked him where he got it from, and he replied with "I sold some crayons to a friend, and he gave me those dollars.” with the straightest face ever. I couldn't punish him because he didn't do anything wrong. All we could do was tell him not to do that anymore. As Kris grew up, he would do sneaky, conniving little things like that all the time. Whether it be getting extra food at breakfast and/or lunch, or starting up a "LightBar" business online with his brother from another mother Lane McAdoo. At one point Kris had bought and traded up 6 trucks and jeeps to get the right truck/jeep he wanted all within a 3-month timeframe and believe it or not he did it all the legal way. Kris was a thrill seeker and always wanted to do the crazy and wildest things from cliff jumping with Lane and his other friends, he wanted to skydive, he wanted to go base jumping, him and Lane was always going mudding, Kris loved fast cars and fast trucks. He always said the faster the better. Kris died doing what he loved literally...... driving a fast car and saving someone else's life!!!! Because had Kris not turned the wheel when he did all three of them would've died.
