Buddy Prince

Many people are grieving the loss of Buddy. He was a wonderful father, grandfather, uncle, cousin, brother and friend. He loved family so much that he raised his wife Cindy’s three kids like they were his own, not treating them any different. He genuinely cared for people, especially family and close friends. He dreamed of having many, many grandbabies. Buddy got his wish when his daughter Brandy had five children and his son, Jason, had four. He was ecstatic when the number of grandchildren reached 15 two years ago. It was amazing watching him deal with so many kids running around but he was the youngest of eight so he was taught the importance of family and believed a family should be tight-knit.


He will be dearly missed at cookouts, reunions, bowling league, dart league, at the Eagles Lodge, and other gatherings with his many family members and friends. There are many things we as family enjoyed doing together that we will now only have as fond memories, but we will always do our best to keep those memories alive in our hearts.


He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Cindy, his children Brent Prince, Jaime (Wendy) Hambelton, Brandy Prince (Justin), Jodi (Jason) Batts, Jason Bjorgo (Tina), and his two sisters Bobbie (Andy) Baley, and Brenda (Charles) Smith.
