Terry Lee Prososki
December 16, 1954 – February 11, 2020
Terry Lee Prososki, son of Clemens and Patricia Prososki, was born December 16, 1954 in Omaha, Nebraska and died unexpectedly on Tuesday, February 11, 2020, at his home in Omaha, at the age of 65.
Terry grew up in South Omaha and graduated from South High School in 1973. Like everyone Terry had many phases of his life. As a young man Terry grew a passion for cars and dirt bikes which then led to a lifetime career in the mechanics field. He started his career at Sears Automotive, then Automotive Electronics, and retired from Metropolitan Utilities District (MUD) in 2013. He took great pride in his work and always made sure to arrive to work early to read the paper.
Once starting his own family, he found that he loved cooking and gardening. Canning homegrown vegetables and spending countless hours in the yard were a couple of things he loved to do. It was important to Terry to have a family pet and this is when the beagle mix puppy, Charlie became part of the family. Charlie was Terry’s “man’s best friend”. They took many camping, hunting and fishing trips together. Fourth of July he would not take any trips as this was a special holiday for Terry. He would host an annual party at home and end the night by watching Rosenblatt Stadium’s firework show.
After his girls had grown up, he was able to pursue another passion, motorcycling. Terry loved to ride and was very proud to not only be a member but the Vice President of the SOB Riders Group. Many relationships were made through the group. Ultimately, Terry referred to all of the members as his brothers. Riding around the United States, taking part in bike runs, and attending concerts were events that Terry enjoyed and looked forward to. When he wasn’t on his bike, he spent time at home with his new puppy Hercules and enjoyed taking his boat out.
Overall, Terry was a person you could count on. He loved helping people, but his ultimate passion was his family. He developed a routine to see his grandson every Friday. Whether he was picking him up from school or from the house, this was their day. He enjoyed watching all of his grandchildren grow up and was extremely proud of all of them.
Survivors include his two daughters, Shawn Perovich (Shawn Mosites) and Tanya Perovich (Rick McGinnis); their mother, Victoria Perovich; grandchildren: Zach, Nick, Taylor, Xander, Haidon, Scarlett and Lylith; siblings: Chuck Prososki, Kathy Hunter and Karen Prososki; many nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents Clemens and Patricia Prososki; his brother, John “Slim” Prososki; and his nephew, Ryan Prososki.
VISITATION and TIME OF SHARING: Saturday, February 22nd from 1pm to 3pm, at the West Center Chapel.
