Obituary Image

He lived his life, he loved his life. He was a dreamer with vision and the fortitude to do his best to make them a reality.

The life of the dreamer began in 1949 when Lenoy was born in Loris, SC to Nathan C. Prince and Mary C. Prince.

Everything he did and the life he lived from that moment on, was done with love, pride, perfection, and compassion. There wasn’t much he couldn’t do, and if he was jumping in on a new endeavor and knew nothing about it, he would educate himself on every detail of the subject until he had the confidence that could he not only do it right, but better. It did not matter the size of the project or job, he wanted to do it perfectly. Not because he was a perfectionist, but because of his pride. His compassion for people was evident.

Lenoy had always been registered as an organ donor, but due to his bouts with cancer, it was not to be. In a selfless act of love and compassion for wanting to make a difference, he donated his earthly body to Wake Forest University for medical research in the hopes that his battle scars would help to teach.

He was preceded in death by; brothers, Edward Prince and J.L. Prince. Sisters, Christine Jackson, Elise Todd, Eulee Todd, Leila Todd, and Patricia Prince.

Those left to carry on his lessons and dreams; Wife – Ellen Prince of Charlotte, NC.   Son- Damon Prince (Challenging Child) and wife Lane of Troy, NC. Daughter – Deanna Peyer (Favorite Child) and husband Brock of Duluth GA. Grandchildren – Cameron Scott Prince, Mary Carson Prince, Palmer Lane Peyer, and Ross Nathan Peyer. Sister – Erline Barnhill and husband Bud of Summerville, SC.

Dad did not want a funeral or memorial service, he said he couldn’t stand the thought of sadness for him. We agreed to abide by his wishes, BUT, he never said we couldn’t have a party to honor him as a husband, father, grandfather, relative, friend, or just an all-around good guy!  Details to be forthcoming.
