It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loved one, J.P. Prince, on September 5th, 2018 in Truro, N.S. J.P. was born September 4, 1951 the sixth child of Jeanne D'Arc (Daviault) and Eddy Prince in Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Quebec. He joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1970, serving for four years, and making friends that would last a lifetime. He then made Truro his home, working as a mechanic, later for The Department of Lands and Forests and then moving on to home renovations. He truly was a jack of all trades and was quick to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. J.P. was a devoted father to David (Tracey Stanley), Monique, Sara, and Stephanie. He shared a close bond with his grandchildren, Lucas Prince-Stanley, Summer Naser and Nicholas Sharpe, who affectionally knew him as Baba. J.P. was predeceased by his daughter, Stephanie, and his father Eddy. He is survived by his mother, his siblings, Roger (Hélène), Ginette, Réjean (Hugette), Christian, Donald, Guy (Diane), Claude (Lucy), and Martine. He had a particularly close relationship with his nieces, Jennifer Goodwin and Maya Prince and nephews, Brandon and Zachary MacDonald. J.P. was very family-oriented and regularly visited his family in Quebec each year, never forgetting his roots. J.P. will be deeply missed, and we will carry him in our hearts forever.
