Obituary

On Sunday, October 24, 2021, Drake Austin Pruden “Bubby” “Drey” passed away at the age of 19. Drake was born on October 11, 2002 in Ottumwa, Iowa.

Drake blessed the lives of so many people in many different states during his life. He was a military brat who lived in many different locations sharing his kindness, compassion, and love with everyone he met. He will always be remembered for his one of a kind infectious smile, beautifully kind heart, compassionate spirit, and jokester antics. He loved spending time with friends and family, and gaming with his friends. He always went out of his way to be welcoming to those who may need a little extra kindness, and was well known for rooting for the underdog.

Drake graduated from Astronaut High School in May of 2021 and had plans to transfer to UCF in January.

He is survived by his Mom and Dad Michelle & Craig Zaun, his sisters Alli and Isabella “Bella Bug”, his grandparents Terry & Sherri VanBuskirk and Curtis & Kathy Zaun, his great grandparents Norma Rubin, and Rose Thompson. He was preceded in death by great grandfather Emilio Rubin “Bob” and great grandmothers Joann VanBuskirk, and Nancy Parker. He is also survived by father Anthony Pruden, siblings Anthony, Libby, Zane, and Quentin, his grandfather Quentin Pruden and preceded in death by grandmother Carole Pruden. He has many surviving Aunts, Uncles, and cousins as well.

Services will be held at Baldwin Brothers Funeral Home on Monday November 1, 2021 at 3:00pm for viewing with ceremony to follow at 5:00pm. Flowers or donations may be sent to 2400 S. Washington Ave, Titusville, FL 32780.

    Drake, I'm sorry we hadn't talked in such a long time. I think the last time we spoke was at least two years ago. It's hard to believe that when we met you were just this tiny loud kid who liked to talk my ear off on the bus ride home and one day I blinked and you were a grown man with new life experiences and so much more to offer this world. The last time we spoke you caught me up on everything that had
    changed since we last saw eachother and you were both hopeful and still trying to find your place in life. I don't know what happened and it's probably not my place to know, what I do know though is that during your time on this Earh you touched the hearts and lives of everyone around you. You even touched the life and heart of your middle school bus buddy from so long ago, I'll miss you Drake. Thank you for our fond memories, even if they're only few.

    You were always so much fun to be around at work. I'll never forget you having Maureen and I sing to you and all the laughs we had during night shifts. Im still in shock that you're gone. Rest in peace buddy. We'll really miss you.
