John J. Pruski Jr.
John J. Pruski Jr., 76, loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother entered into eternal rest on Thursday, Oct. 20, 2011. He was born on Oct. 3, 1935, in Kosciusko, Texas, to John and Zuzanna Pruski.
John was in the flooring business for more than 50 years and owned Carpets Unique in Leon Valley for more than 35 years.
Watching sports was his favorite pastime and he was a big Dallas Cowboy, Houston Astros, and Spurs fan. Just give John any team from Texas, and he was happy. He loved to barbecue and party. John was funny, witty, and always had a story. He was an avid hunter and fisherman who taught his sons to respect and appreciate the outdoors.
John was a loving, caring, and generous father and grandfather, and he will be greatly missed.
He is survived by Pat, his loving wife of 38 years; his sons, John Pruski and wife Vikki, Dwayne Pruski and wife Annette, and Brian Pruski and wife Dede; his grandchildren, Amber, Kimberly, Jennifer, Jarrett, Kaitlyn, Jordyn, Amanda, Austin, and Connor; siblings Lorene Yosko, Zygmund Pruski, Virginia Maha, David Pruski, Mary Jane Jendrusch, Marvin Pruski, and Theresa Herber; and numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many friends.
The family would like to thank everyone who helped with John’s cancer treatments, whether it was supporting him by phone or driving him to his endless appointments.
A rosary was recited on Thursday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. in the Sunset Northwest Funeral Home in San Antonio.
A funeral Mass was celebrated Friday at 11 a.m. in St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Kosciusko.
