Paul Grobski, age 77 of Conway, SC Passed on October 14, 2019.
Paul was the proud father of Paul Jr. (Michaela) and Karen Dowler (Bill Xavier) and the husband of Lee Grobski. He was the grandfather of Joey Dowler, his only grandson whom he loved dearly. He was also blessed by having his family extended to include Santana, Skylar, Chris, and Brayden. He was born in Scranton, PA and grew up in NY. He entered the US Marine Corp at age 18. He loved being a Marine and his six years of service was highlighted by the two years he was part of the Ceremonial Guard Company stationed at 8th and I in Washington, DC. Part of his duties were to guard at Camp David and at the White House.
After discharge he became a member of the management team of APA Transport and each promotion moved him and his family to another state. He was transferred to Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. Upon retirement he took his golf clubs and moved to Myrtle Beach, SC.
One of the highlights of his retirement was participating in Toys for Tots. He worked hard in the area of Myrtle Beach and Conway collecting boxes of toys to be distributed to needy children. It gave him great joy to know that children would have toys on Christmas Day.
He will be sorely missed by his family, many friends and neighbors. A Celebration of Life Service will be held Friday November 1, 2019 starting at 10:30am at Grand Strand Funeral Home, 9020 Hwy 17 Bypass Murrells Inlet SC 29576. There will be military Honors presented by the Marine Corp League. A reception will follow.
