George PROKOPETZ

Prokopetz; George

We sadly announce the passing of our dear father George Prokopetz. He lived to be 91 years of age. Was born April 17, 1923 in MacNutt, Saskatchewan. Passed away on March 30, 2015 in the Abbotsford Hospital. He was predeceased by his wife, Joyce and is survived and missed by their three children, Barry, Sherry and Shawn. Also, is greatly missed by Barry’s wife Jo-Anne and Shawn’s wife Kathy along with three grandchildren, Christopher Joschko and Ben and Adam Prokopetz. Between the time he spent playing the game that he loved, golf, and the many years in the military, being a member of The Lord Strathcona’s Horse, he grew to have many wonderful friends and acquaintances. He was a veteran of WW2 and the Korean war. Amazingly, his brothers Alex and Pete were also in the second war and all survived to return home to Canada. Dad requested not to have a memorial service but to simply be buried next to his wife in a cemetery in Battleford, Saskatchewan. In lieu of flowers please feel free to make a donation to the Kidney Foundation.
