   We announce with great sadness the passing of Reinhold Prochnau of Blairmore, Alberta who left us all too soon on August 21, 2023.  He was 87 years of age.

    Reinhold was born on December 31, 1935  in Bremevorde, Germany to parents, August and Anna Prochnau.  He was raised to treasure family and friends, the simple blessing in life and that hard work reaps great rewards.

 Reinhold was a professional painter who owned his business. He was also a gifted handyman who liked to work on vintage cars,  woodwork and lending a hand to those in need. He loved going for a nature walks with his dogs, photography, good music, traveling the world and cherished time spent with family and friends. Never one to complain, humerous, wise, thoughtful, and always ready to lend a helping hand, Reinhold will be forever remembered with love and respect. 

   Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life include his children, Sarah Prochnau of Calgary, Alberta, Vanessa Prochnau of Montreal, Quebec and Werner Prochnau of Chateauguay, Quebec; his grandchildren, Selena, Mason, Brittany, Kelsey, Hannah, Mark and Jessica; his good friend, Bernie Oostenbrink; as well as his extended family and many friends.

   He was predeceased by his parents, August and Anna Katharina Prochnau; his brother, Ernst  Adolf Prochnau; his sisters, Gerda Vogt and Elfriede Held; his canine companion, Bear, Max & Brandy.

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, he answered “ Man, because he sacrifice his health in order to make money, then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health and then he is so anxious about the future he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die and then dies having never really lived.”
