John Prohaska died September 5, 2022, at Grace Hospital in Winnipeg from post-surgery complications.
Born August 25, 1934, in Yugoslavia (Croatia) John, his mother and five siblings immigrated to Canada in the early 1950s after many years in an Austrian displaced persons' camp. He worked several jobs in Canada until he became a well-respected steel fabrication engineer, designing agricultural and manufacturing structures across the country.
A private service will be held.
Grateful thanks go to all the staff at Grace Hospital for their exceptional care and compassion.
The family requests that friends visit Johann Prohaska's tribute wall at www.bardal.ca where condolences, photos and stories may be placed for all to see.
