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.  Long 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.
