For Proko-Wall, Community Service is Integral

Posted on 3-24-2022

Community service is an integral part of Proko-Wall’s business, and they know how important it is to devote community time outside of the funeral home.

Proko-Wall Funeral Home and Crematory

Founded in late 1969 by the late Gerald Proko and Bob Walczyk, Sr., Proko-Wall Funeral Home was established on what was known as the far east side of Green Bay. The business has grown to six fully licensed funeral directors, a certified pre-planning specialist, 18 additional full and part time staff, a licensed in-house crematory and a full service pet funeral home. Proko-Wall continues to deliver the unique brand of service that families have become accustomed to since 1969, with the ownership transferring to Bob Walczyk Jr. ┬áLong ago, Jerry and Bob Sr. realized that a funeral was much more than just a service, and were committed to helping a family keep the memories of their loved ones alive. Proko-Wall continues to help families create unique tributes to a life lived and is dedicated to walk with a family after the ‘service’ is over.
