He was preceded in death by his father, Arthur “Preacher” Prince.
Steve was a devoted Christian, loving son, doting husband and supportive father but he was most affectionately known to everyone as “Big Daddy”-dare we say his starring role- to his 5 grandchildren. Steve was a dedicated employee of Mitchell Brothers Supermarket which felt more like a family to him. He later retired from Greensville Correctional Center where he also had many friends. He was a committed member of Main Street Baptist Church and the Family YMCA of Emporia.
Steve loved to travel, the beach, working in the yard, walking his beloved dog, Rigby, attending ball games and spoiling his grandchildren. Everything in his life centered around his family.
Visitation will be held at 1:00pm on December 4, 2021 at Main Street Baptist Church. A funeral service will then be held at 2:00pm. Interment to follow at Mount Vernon Baptist Church, Dry Bread Road, Emporia.
