Michael W. Princehorn, 65, of Wooster, passed away on Friday, January 26, 2024, at Wooster Community Hospital.

He was born October 19, 1958, in Massillon, the son of Richard and Patti Bolender Princehorn.

Michael was a lifelong resident of Wayne and Stark counties. He was a 1977 graduate of Dalton High School. Michael had been employed at Federated Auto Parts in both Canton and Wooster for 25 years. He was a huge fan of “The Beatles” music and enjoyed watching “Seinfeld” and “The 3 Stooges.” Michael also enjoyed both playing and watching golf in his spare time. His greatest love, however, was his family. He truly enjoyed spending time with them and attending their sporting activities in their younger years.

Surviving are his children Stephanie Princehorn of Massillon and Nicholas Princehorn of Alliance; his grandchildren Kali Graves and Amari Princehorn; and his brother Douglas (Kathy) Princehorn of Wooster.

Michael was preceded in death by his parents.

A Service of Remembrance will be held on Monday, February 5, 2024, at 1:00PM at the McIntire, Bradham & Sleek Funeral Home, 216 E. Larwill St., in Wooster, with Rev. Larry Emery officiating.

Friends will be received 1-hour prior to the start of the service at the funeral home.
