Travis was born in Tyler, Missouri on September 7th, 1935 the son of Ellery & Mildred (Newland) Prince, one of 11 siblings. His career started out with him working in a concrete business. With hard work & dedication, he opened his own construction business that gave him the opportunity to acquire a restaurant, starting a hugely successful auction & he even dabbled in owning a hockey team – The Flint Generals. He loved playing golf – the proof remains in the dozens of trophies he has collected throughout the years. Travis was known as someone who would do anything for anyone in need. He never even thought twice when asked for help. He, like his daughter Kim, never met a stranger. He really enjoyed making people laugh. Telling jokes & making people smile, made him smile. Travis had a very blessed life. Surviving are: wife of 63.5 years, Nancy Prince; son, Dr. Troy Prince; daughter, Julie Stemple; granddaughters, Jordan Tigner-Prince and McKenzie Miller; four siblings, Ralph, Wayne, Lloyd and Larry Prince. He was preceded in death by: his parents; six siblings; daughter, Kim Prince and grandson, Brandon Miller. The family would like to thank everyone at Vicinia Gardens, as well as his hospice caregivers, for the graciousness they provided Travis in his last years.
