On behalf of the entire Orlando family, we're so sorry for the loss of the "Mr. Pronek" as we called him. He was truly a great husband, father, and leader of the Pronek Clan. I first met Mr. Pronek visiting my friend, Gene Pronek, at "Pronek Central" when we were both teenagers. Initially, I think Mr. Pronek was wary of me....because he had good judgment :)
I quickly grew to know and admire him and the entire Pronek Clan. He was truly a great man who inspired the best in everyone who had the privilege to be around him, especially his family. Our family has so many great memories with him, and the Pronek family. And those memories continue with their extended families as they continue to grow. We will always fondly remember the Memorial Day parades, croquet tournaments, BBQs, and of course, losing money in the best variety of poker games every conceived!
We will miss him tremendously. However, we remain blessed and grateful that Mr. and Mrs. Pronek raised such a fabulous family. I'm so impressed with their collective intelligence, work ethic, strength, competitiveness, passion and balance (with a slightly twisted sense of humor :).
Rest in Peace, Mr. Pronek....
Best, Joe, Cathy, Brennan & Stephanie-Rose
So sorry for your loss. Thinking of all the Pronek's. Mr. Pronek (I couldn't bring myself to call him by his first name) was one of those people that made you feel good no matter what was going on. He always had that quick one liner or a lengthy joke that would crack us all up. I will miss the poker games where he would laugh at you while taking all your spare change and making you laugh while doing it. I remember sitting with Mr. Pronek watching whatever game was on while Thomas or Gene were "getting ready" to go out. I will alway think of the big fights with everyone around the Living Room while he told stories of the old fights. Memorial Day in Farmingdale will never be the same without the awesome stickball games with Mr. Pronek trash talking both sides while striking you out. Sending Prayers and Love to you all.
Neal was a larger than life member of our family. What an interesting man! Time spent with Neal was well-spent as you would always learn something, have to think deeply about something and certainly laugh out loud about something. Neal exuded intelligence, curiosity, humor, passion and, above all, love. We were blessed to know him.
Kathleen, Patti, Nick, Frankie, Diane, Cristian Stiven, Larry & Jhon Eric.
Even though there is joy in the homegoing, there is sorrow in your loss. We are thinking of you at this tender time and sending a warm embrace to all of you along with our love during this sad time. Condolences, Christine White & Todd Billingsley
