William Prozora

William Prozora was born Feb. 8, 1917 in New York, N.Y. to Samuel and Anna Prozora. Bill went peacefully to our dear Lord on Jan. 29, 2008 just shy of his 91st birthday.

He was a loving, caring husband and father for almost 65 years. Bill died from a brain tumor at home with his family at his side, holding his hands.

Bill served his country in World War II from May 1941 until October 1945. He then worked until retirement in 1972 with the Department of Defense.

In 1973, he and his wife built their home overlooking Mutiny Bay. He enjoyed spending many hours working in his yard, caring for a large garden, helping others, and in his earlier years, fishing.

He is survived by his wife Dorothee; sons William, Donald and his wife Pirjo; and his daughter Merrily Clark. He was also survived by three grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and his brother Fred Prozora and sister Olga Suarez on the East Coast.

He was preceded in death by his son Robert, his grandson Geoffrey Prozora and his sister Vera Weber.
