Ross Allyn PRINCE August 10, 1951 ~ May 25, 2011 Husband of Chris Anderson, father of Siv and Riley Prince, brother of Bim Prince, and member of a large extended family. Ross was a 1969 graduate of Shorecrest High School where he was a standout baseball pitcher and a musician who played drums in an early NW band called Balloon Farm. As a young man, Ross's adventurous spirit led him from tending bar in Fremont to Alaska's Bering Sea where he was foreman on a crab processor. His work in landscaping, fine furniture, and iron art, ultimately led him to form Ross Prince Design and Construction. Ross enjoyed coaching his daughters basketball teams and later his wife's softball team. He always played highly competitive softball, an activity shared by his family , who are his biggest fans. Sadly, Ross died barely two months after being diagnosed with cancer in March. His large family, many friends and teammates miss him greatly. We love you Ross.

I will miss Ross as he was an inspiration to me as to how well he could still throw a softball on the Yeager's Nation senior softball team. From what I observed with Ross on an everyday basis, was that family always came first in his life.

One of the reasons I enjoyed ball so much,are the folks you meet along the way. Ross was one of the folks that really stood out. We always had a hug for each other on every occasion whether we were on the same team,or not. He will surely be missed both on and off the feild. My sinsere condolences to Ross's family.

That is horrible news, I had no idea Ross had cancer. He was a good man and a good friend that I will miss and another good person claimed far to soon. The world is definitely in need of more people like Ross.

My sincere condolences to his family and many friends.
