Port Washington

Kevin Prochniak of Port Washington, WI, passed away peacefully on Thursday, April 6, 2023, at the age of 63. Kevin was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer in October of 2022 and passed away with his family at this bedside on April 6th.

Kevin attended Mukwonago High School and went on to work as a Irrigation Project Manager for Acme Sprinkler Systems in Glendale, WI, for the past 29 years where he has created lasting friendships with all of his co-workers/vendors; especially past owner, Tom Laur (and family), & current owner, Scott Selby (and family).

He is survived by his loving wife of 41 years, Lori; and three children: Andrea (Eric) Eibs, Amanda Prochniak, and Son and Best Friend, Adam Prochniak. He was the best "Papa" to his baby girl, Adalyn (Granddaughter).

He is further survived by his three Sisters: Tamye (Randy) Drefahl, Stephanie Luebke, and Gina Taylor; Sister-in-laws, Lynn (Jay) Dybul and Ruth Bilke. He will be greatly missed by his many Nephews and Nieces: Ryan, Michael and Matthew (Ashley & Mason), Shannon (Garrett), Wayne, Breanna, Brooke, Taylor, and Zach. Kevin also left behind his 3 loving dogs: Bella, Brandy, and Maya.

Kevin is preceded in death by both of his parents, James & Barbara Prochniak; Brother, Brian Prochniak; Mother-in-law, Arden Millard; Father-in-law, James Bilke & Wife, Mary Bilke; Brother-in-law, Scott Bilke; Sister-in-law, Debbie Bilke; Brother-in-law, Rocky Luebke; and Brother-in-law, Jim Taylor.

Kevin & his wife, Lori, loved to travel with the family; the family will cherish the many beach vacation memories & will continue to explore & make further memories. He was an avid Hunter and Fisherman. Kevin loved to spend time with his son, Adam, outdoors in the fall waiting for that perfect buck to come along, winter on the ice fishing, and spring/summer out on Lake Michigan, salmon fishing. Kevin lived to hunt and fish and his son, Adam, will carry on the traditions and as his granddaughter calls it "bring the Reindeer sausage home."

There will be a Celebration of Life for Kevin this summer with the date TBD, held at one of his favorite places to spend time, his Sister Tamye & Randy’s Farm, in East Troy, where friends and family can come together and celebrate Kevin’s life and share memories.

A special Thank you to Dr. Scot Wilfong (Aurora Port Washington), Dr. Mandana Kamdar, & all of the wonderful staff on the 8th floor at Froedtert who took exceptional care of Kevin in his final weeks; the family truly appreciates everything.
