Bob Walczyk Jr

Bob Walczyk Jr decided after having a number of pets die, that there should be a dignified place to take a pet after their life ended. In 2002 Forever Friends opened on Heyrman St. on Green Bay’s East side. A family pet is a family member and should be treated as such. The idea of mirroring the services that are offered at his funeral home, Proko-Wall Funeral Home, located across the street, became an important part of the Forever Friends business model. Forever Friends serves families all over Northeast Wisconsin and continues to grow every year.

Bob and his wife Annette are Green Bay natives and currently members of Prince of Peace Parish. They have two daughters and two grandchildren and a sassy dog named Daisy. Bob enjoys spending time with his family and the great outdoors. He likes hunting and fishing and working in his yard. Bob has been a member of the Green Bay Preble Optimist Club for over 35 years and is active in numerous other local charities and professional organizations.
