It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Walter Prince, who left us on June 16, 2023, in Pegram, Tennessee. He was born on June 14, 1941, at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville to Asa and Elizabeth Gray Prince.
Walter's kindness and generosity allowed him never to meet a stranger, leading him to a successful career in sales for many years prior to retirement.
A graduate of Bellevue High School and Lipscomb University, he was a man of many talents and a wealth of knowledge. Every story he told, including those of the Cumberland River, was always in full detail, never missing a beat. His family would describe him no less than a kind-hearted man that enjoyed fishing, music, and especially his sports. Not just any sport, but Walter loved his Tennessee Titans that he studied for years. He knew all the names of every person on the field, so much so that he knew his draft picks for the upcoming seasons.
Walter is survived by his loving wife of many years, Mary Ann Walkup Prince; his sister, Lillian Lee and brother, Paul Prince will always cherish their memories with him. He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews who will deeply miss their Uncle Walter. He is preceded in death by his parents, Asa and Elizabeth Prince; and his siblings, Ralph Prince, Bill Prince, Alec Prince and Helen Orr.
Friends and family are invited to come say their final good-byes to Walter at the Harpeth Hills Memory Garden Funeral Home & Cremation Center located at 9090 TN-100 in Nashville. Visitations hours will be held on June 21st from 4:00PM -7:00 PM. The funeral service will be held the following day at 1:00PM on June 22nd. Family and friends will be serving as pallbearers.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Alive hospice in Nashville, Tennessee, Cheatham County Animal Awareness Foundation, or Hickman County Humane Society. For more information on how to donate, please contact Harpeth Hills Funeral Home.
We have lost a remarkable man who touched our hearts in so many ways. We celebrate his life today as we mourn our loss tomorrow—we close this chapter in sorrow but carry forth his everlasting memory with us forevermore.
