Bay City, Michigan
After a courageous battle with cancer, Paul passed away Saturday, June 5, 2010 at Brian’s House, age 64. He was born July 1, 1945 in Bay City to the late Richard F. and Gladys C. (Matuszewski) Weiss. Paul married Janet C. Magryta in St. Hyacinth Church on April 29, 1967 and she survives him. He was a Vietnam veteran and served his country with the US Navy. He retired from General Motors-Powertrain on July 1, 2008, with over forty years of dedicated service. Paul was a member of St. Hyacinth Church and Pulaski Hall, where enjoyed playing cards with his buddies. He also enjoyed traveling, camping with family and friends, golf, and helping others with home remodeling and “fix-up” projects. Paul loved to make home-cooked meals and baked the perfect desserts. Family and friends will sadly miss his chicken noodle soup and those extra special desserts.
