“The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge while an ordinary man takes everything as a blessing or a curse.” ~Castañeda
Prudy graduated from Ann Arbor High School in 1969. He owned his own delivery service "P&C Delivery" in Ann Arbor, delivering tofu and other specialty foods to grocery stores and restaurants. In his younger years, Prudy was part of the Counter-Culture Revolution. This had a direct influence on the shape of his life. Throughout his life, Prudy's participation in cultural events, historical re-enactments, and the study of history, the world, and politics helped him develop many deeply held beliefs. With his warrior spirit and vast knowledge, he could debate anyone who believed otherwise. But, Prudy also had a fun and whimsical side that made him the life of the party. He had a love for riding his V-Max motorcycle, Blues music, drinking beer, barbequing, and having a good time with his many friends.
