Born in Cleveland Ohio and raised in Schenectady, NY, Frank was the son of the late Kazimer and Catherine (Rogalski) Prokorym.

Frank graduated from Draper High School in 1944, and proudly served his country during WWII in Central Europe and received the European-African-Middle Eastern Theater Ribbon with 1 Bronze Star, In 1961, Frank married Alfreda M. (Pustolka) Prokorym, his loving wife of fifty-two years. They resided in Schenectady, NY until he retired from the Adirondack Steel Casting Company where he was employed as a machinist for more than 30 years. In 1989 Frank and Alfreda moved to Daytona Beach, Florida until Alfreda’s passing in 2013. Frank subsequently moved back to Schenectady, where he lived with his loving and devoted daughter, Linda. Frank was known for his infectious sense of humor and strong moral compass. He was a devout Catholic and a communicant of St. Adalberts Church in Schenectady, NY. He was famously known for saying, "If you live by the Good Book, you will not go wrong”.

Frank was a talented artist who loved to paint and draw, he was skilled at carpentry, which incorporated his artistic flare. He loved the outdoors, where he enjoyed landscaping, biking, golfing and swimming. He enjoyed taking long walks on the beach with his wife. Frank loved challenging jigsaw and crossword puzzles, as well as mushroom picking in the fall. A sports enthusiast, he was an avid Cleveland Browns' and Cleveland Indians' Fan. He also enjoyed many summers with his family at their lake house on the Great Sacandaga. Frank was a natural crooner, and once they heard him, everyone loved to sing along.

Frank was also predeceased by his siblings, Raymond “Roman” Prokorym, Jean Durma and Chester Prokorym.

Frank is survived by his loving daughter Linda A. Prokorym of Colonie, NY, and his many nieces and nephews.
