Gryn, Paul Wm. passed away peacefully on September 30th, 2014 surrounded by his family after a courageous battle with cancer.
Loving husband and best friend of Nijola for 45 years. Proud dad of Jennifer Gryn and husband Jason Thoms and Mark Gryn and wife Rosemary Barbera. Adored grandad of Audrey Thoms, Joshua and Lauren Gryn. Predeceased by his parents Anna and Leo Gryn.
Paul retired from Industry Canada in 1997.
In life and retirement, he enjoyed curling, sailing, both cruising and racing and was a long time member of Cedar Island Yacht Club. He recently joined St. Clair Garden Railroaders and was working towards his own backyard railway.
Touring with their R.V. from as far north as Red Lake, ON down to the Florida Keys and many stops in between filled his retirement years.
When he wasn't traveling, spending time with his grandchildren was his favourite thing to do.
As per Paul's wishes, cremation has taken place. In lieu of flowers, if desired donations may be made to Hospice Windsor Essex County by contacting Reid Funeral Home and Reception Centre, Essex (519-776-4233).
Family and friends are invited to share their words of comfort and remembrance at www.reidfuneralhome.ca
To Industry Canada:
Quite often I have passed along to your office obituaries of southwest Ontario (Windsor, Leamington, Chatham, et.al.) area amateur radio operators. Below is the obit for the late/great Paul Gryn who worked in your Windsor office for many years and was very well known and very well liked by the southwestern Ontario amateur radio community. He kept in touch with many of us over the years and was considered a good friend by all. Indeed, Paul and Ron Taggart VE3APC also of the Windsor Industry Canada (aka, DOC back in the day) were the two ‘Radio Inspectors’ who administered the ham radio exam that I passed back in 1976. Paul and Ron left their mark in many ways on this hobby and are missed!
