Obituary for Duane Princehorn

Duane Princehorn
Duane H. Princehorn, age 82, formerly of Wooster, is now in God's loving embrace following his battle with kidney disease on Friday, May 5, 2017 at Genesis Health Care Center in Sylvania, Ohio.

Duane was born on November 29, 1934 in East Greenville, Ohio to Homer and Grace (Hohenadel) Princehorn.
He graduated from Washington High School in Massillon, Ohio in 1953 and went on to earn his Bachelor's degree in Education from Ohio Northern University in 1957.

He married Betty A. Huffman on October 28, 1961 in Lorain, OH.

He put his degree to use as a teacher at Horace Mann Middle School in Lakewood, OH. where he taught for over 25 years teaching Industrial Arts, Mathematics and Computer Science. During this time, he served in the Ohio Army National Guard and continued his education by earning his Master's degree from Kent State University.

Duane's passion definitely was his family, but when he had extra time he could be found creating numerous furniture and woodworking projects or tending to his vast flower and vegetable gardens. He never hesitated to share the fruits of his labor with others. His gift of teaching expanded well outside the classroom as he always shared his vast knowledge to aid those around him, which was his way of making the world a better place.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

In addition to his loving wife of 55 years, he is survived by his son, Todd (Andrea) Princehorn of Luna Pier, MI. and daughter, Marschal (James) Sutphin of Lebanon, KY.; grandchildren, Megan Nally, Jenna and Logan Sutphin, and Briana Princehorn; four great-grandchildren and a brother, Dean (Joyce) Princehorn of Massillon, OH.

The family will be receiving visitors on Tuesday, May 9th at Custer-Glenn Funeral Home in Wooster from 2 - 4 and 6 - 8 p.m..
The funeral service will be held at Oak Chapel United Methodist Church in Wooster on Wednesday, May 10th at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Christopher B. Statz officiating. A visitation will take place on hour (10:00 - 11:00 a.m) prior to services at the church.
There will be a reception for family and friends immediately following the service at the church.
The Interment will then take place at St. John's Sixteen Cemetery in Massillon, OH. at 3:00 p.m.

Memorial contributions may be made in lieu of flowers to the charity of the donor's choice.

Words of comfort may be shared with the family at: www.custerglenn.com.
