Andrew D. Prokof
Andrew D. Prokof, age 28, died peacefully on Saturday, May 30th, 2020. Andrew was an avid fisherman and a lover of all sports who took great pride in his sheet metal work in the HVAC industry. He was a fan of the Chicago Bears and the St. Louis Cardinals. He loved his country and had great respect for those who served. He enjoyed having a good time and especially loved pushing people’s buttons. He was most proud of his 50-inch musky he caught while fishing in Canada. Andrew had a giving heart, an incredible work ethic, and an outgoing personality, and he was the first to step up if anyone needed help.
Andrew is survived by his parents, David and Nancy Prokof; his sisters, Lauren, Michelle, and Paige Prokof (Tyler Huettig); and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He is preceded in death by his brother, Kevin Michael Prokof; and his grandparents, Reginald and Ione Prokof and Melville and Betty Eaton.
