Curtis Prohaska Memorial Fund
Curtis, at age 33, was unexpectedly killed in an automobile accident just days after his 33rd birthday while driving to work at his new job for the Traverse Bay Intermediate School District. His wife and he had only relocated to the area within the prior week and were excited to start their new life together in Traverse City, where Becky had recently been hired on as a high school English teacher for Traverse City West.
Curtis loved his wife and pups, his family and friends, and his mountain-bike. His life was short, but the impact he left on all who knew him was immense.
With Curtis' passing, we are uniting to help raise money to pay for funeral and residual medical expenses and to ensure that his wife, Becky, will have time to grieve without any added financial stress. Thanks in advance for your kind contribution.
In fondest memory,
Family and Friends of Curtis Prohaska
