I'm sad to inform you that Ronn 'Skip' Prokop passed away on Wednesday, August 30, 2017. Ronn was a snare drummer with Preston Scout House and, then, the Toronto Optimists. Ronn left the Optimists after the 1963 season to pursue a career in music. He was also a founding member of the groups 'The Paupers' and 'Lighthouse'. Ronn will be missed by all who knew him.
