  1. I was very sadened to read today of Jim’s Passing. I haven’t seen Jim in quite a few years ,but he was in my thoughts as i passed his parents home on Theota almost every day.I had many of verry good years hanging around with Jim in our Neighborhood.Paling ball,riding our bikes ,Racing our cars ,going to the Drags and so forth.I met Jim in the summerof 1956 when we moved to Parma. Jim was a true friend and will be mised by all. I remember going to Ray and Donna’s Home and Playing the piano for the children and just havinga ball and Rays 1954 Ford contvertable that Jim would always manage to sneak out of the Garage for a quick ride.
    those were the good old days which are now gone,along with Jim Rest in Peace Jim and Thank You For the Memories Ken Fitch



  2. I was saddened to hear of Jim’s passing. My brother Ken was very good friends with Jim growing up, but I knew him too. When we first moved to Parma in 1956, Jim was our Cleveland Press carrier. Over the years I kept track of Jim and how he was doing by because Lynda Prochko, Jim’s nephew’s wife was my dental hygienist at Sears. I would always tell her to say hello to Jim. I always remember Jim’s yellow 1957 Chevy. He was a good guy and will be sadly missed. May he rest in peace.

  3. I met Uncle Jim in 1979 when I first started dating Jeff. Him and Aunt Joy had a Valentines Day wedding anniversary, which Jeff and I shared with them when we got married for Valentines Day in 1986. He was a very good uncle to all: Lynne,Jeff,Larry and Jerry. He was at all the birthdays,weddings,anniversaries,christenings,Easters,Thanksgivings, and Christmases. He was a traditional man and honored all traditional family events. He loved animals and had several horses, beautiful dogs(large Bull Mastiffs), and cuddly cats. What I will remember the most about him however is the love, care, patience and dedication he gave to his wife(Aunt Joy) after she suffered a severe stroke and spent the rest of her life in a wheelchair. Both of their lives were changed in an instant. He became her arms and legs and always did everything for her with gentle kindness. Her hair was always beautiful,her clothes and shoes were immaculate, he met all of her needs. He truly dedicated himself to her until her death 3 years ago. We will never forget the love he had for her and that he made sure she was well taken care of. He is now with Joy and in Gods loving care. HE WILL BE MISSED. Gob bless you Uncle Jim. We love you.
    Jeffrey,Lynda,Lyndsey and Jenny Prochko

  4. I will remember “Jimmy” fondly as our parents were dear friends for years and we would go out to the “farm” on holidays to spend time together in the pasture by the creek. We had such fun cooking outside and sleeping in the barn. My sister, Marilyn and Jimmy and I would spend hours together combing the creek beds for frogs and toads and special rocks just enjoying nature. The family wishes to express our sincere condolences on the loss of your dear brother and uncle to the Prochko family.

  5. So sorry to hear of cousin Jimmy passing. My condolence to the family. My thoughts are with you today. Rose and Dave
