July 22, 1943 - November 16, 2020
On November 16, 2020, Gerald Lee Prince left this world for his next great adventure where his dad and mom, Cleament and Venice (Pugmire) Prince were waiting for him. His time on earth began on July 22, 1943. He had a childhood filled with love, fun and mischief. His mother was not immune to his pranks and was known to have tied him up in the back of the truck so she could deliver milk without any funny business. A San Francisco Giants' fan from the beginning. His brother Norman thought his mom had dropped Gerald on his head for him to have chosen the Giants as his favorite team. He met the love of his life, Barbara, at the Brigham Young University library and often told the story of how the poor country boy fell for the line of the big city girl on the 5th floor of the library. With her love and support, he received his Doctorate in Education from the University of Colorado in 1971. Growing up with Gerald for a dad was never dull. He was always ready to play catch or take us on a fun getaway to the pool at the Holiday Inn or a luau in Hawaii. His antics did not stop at home. He knew how to create a supportive and fun work environment. There were even a few water fights at the school board office. Kathy Moore described him so well, "He taught us love, compassion, empathy. He modeled for us what it means to be an effective educator. One who teaches the whole child. He was a mentor to hundreds of us, our consummate role model, showing us not only how to excel as an educator but how to excel as a human being." Gerald loved being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He taught many classes in the church, served on the High Counsel of the Church, and loved helping and teaching as a Scout Master. Left to dig through his life's treasures are his wife, Barbara, his daughter, Kami (Mark Bradford), and his son, Kort (Natalie Hart). Gerald relished his role as Grandpa Gerald to Atticus Bradford and Effie Prince and hopes that he taught them to love life and learning and to live every moment to the fullest. No flowers, please. What would have made him happiest is having the "Dr. Prince" at Chile Verde with a friend and remembering the good times you had with him. If you still want to donate to honor his memory, donations may be sent to: The American Heart Association or The American Cancer Society.
