1. Bruce Prentice was b. c. 1944, probably Detroit, MI, and d. 15 Jun 2014. His obituary reads as follows:

    Bruce Prentice: Newspaper Obituary and Death Notice, Sylva Herald & Ruralite, The (NC) - Wednesday, June 18, 2014.

    Bruce "Speedy" Prentice, 70, of Cullowhee, NC, passed away at home, June 15, 2014.

    Mr. Prentice was the founder, owner, and original operator of Speedy's Pizza, which emerged out of Cullowhee in 1973. Bruce moved from Detroit to Sylva, because he loved the small town feel, the sense of community, and the serenity that only the mountains could bring. He is greatly loved and will be deeply missed by many.

    He is survived by his wife, Janie Prentice of Cullowhee, N.C.; his three children, Jennifer Stillwell of Sylva, N.C., Molly Cabrera of Lighthouse Point, Fla., and John Prentice of Sylva; sister Betsy Prentice Zboril of Rochester, Mich.; and three grandchildren, Jett, Jarin and Jayce Stillwell of Sylva.

He m. Janie. Children per his obituary, above:

  1. JenniferPrentice. She m. Mr. Stillwell and in 2014 lived in Sylva, NC.
  2. Molly Prentice. She m. Mr. Cabrera and in 2014 lived in Lighthouse Point, FL.
  3. John Prentice and in 2014 lived in Sylva, NC.

Who are Bruce Prentice's Parents?

For now, it is only an educated guess, but Bruce Prentice's father might be John Prentice (shown in the 1940 census as b. c. 1904, Scotland) and his wife, Jean (also b. c. 1904 in Scotland) :

  1. John lives in Detroit, as probably did Bruce.
  2. John's age is appropriate, 40 when Bruce was born in 1944.
  3. Bruce named a son, John, probably after his father.
  4. John had a daughter, Betty, and Bruce's obituary says Bruce has a sister, Betsy.

Investigation is continuing.
