Thurman "Tom" Prince was born September 14, 1923 to Charlie and Geneva Prince in Varina, NC.

Tom was a kind and gentle man who never met a stranger. He loved to fish and spend time outside. Tom was a friendly man who loved to joke around and always had a smile that matched his personality. He especially enjoyed his time spent with his friends at McDonalds in Cary for breakfast.
