It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of
Kenneth Sigmund Prince at his home in Renfrew on
Feb. 10, 2020 in his 73rd year. He was predeceased by
his parents Felix Thomas Prince (1986) and Barbara Ann
(nee Kosnaskie) (1989), half-brother Elmer Buraczewski
(2016), and sister Bernice Semark (2005). Kenny was born March 22, 1947 in Barry’s Bay and attended St. Joseph’s School. At the age of 12 his mother and sisters moved to Foxboro, where the children walked five miles to a
one-room country school.Kenny stayed behind and lived in Killaloe for a while before rejoining the family in Belleville. He spent a year and a half of high school at St. Joseph’s Training School for boys at Alfred east of Ottawa, then attended Loyalist College in Belleville. He found work at a box manufacturing plant and later at a sock factory in Belleville before a health condition overtook his life.
Kenny liked to move around and throughout his lifetime lived in various
communities including Belleville, Toronto, Arnprior and for the last 12 years made Renfrew his home town. He was a quiet person, who kept very much to himself but enjoyed regular visits to his sisters and cousins. He loved the valley and took an interest in his heritage and cultural roots with annual attendance at Kashub Day and the local parish suppers.
Kenny will be greatly missed by his sisters Theresa Farrugia (Victor) of Toronto, Esther Rutter (Harry) and Adelaide Sanford (Douglas) both of Belleville. He leaves behind many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Professional services have been entrusted to the care of Rushnell Family
Services, 80 Highland Ave., Belleville. Cremation has taken place. Respecting
Kenny’s wishes there will be no wake or funeral. Spring interment in the family plot beside his mother and sister in Belleville Cemetery. Donations in memory of Kenny to any charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.
