Donald Chester Grywinski


Mr. Donald Chester Grywinski, of Telford, Tennessee went to be with his Lord and Savior on Saturday, March 30, 2019.
Don was born August 29, 1950, in Natrona Heights, Pennsylvania, son of the late Helene (Socha) Grywinski and Chester Grywinski. He is survived by wife of 44 years Karen (Morris) Grywinski; son Corey James and wife Shannon (Greco) Grywinski of Vandergrift, Pennsylvania; and daughter Stacey Lynne and husband Richard Bedingfield of Jonesborough, Tennessee; and grandchildren Gavin and Aiden Grywinski and Zachary and Megan Bedingfield. Also surviving are his sister Mrs. Dennis (Cindy) Kost of Lower Burrell, PA and brother-in-law Kevin and wife Wendy (Kelly) Morris of Kernersville, North Carolina; and two nieces.
Don was a graduate of Burrell High School, Lower Burrell PA and Penn State University. He was a substitute teacher for several years, followed by twenty-three years of service at Allegheny Ludlum Steel Corp. as a production scheduler. Don was an avid reader and had a great knowledge of the history of World War II, Theodore Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy. He also loved older model cars and would strike up a conversation with anyone interested in listening. He dearly loved his grandchildren and spent many hours playing on the floor right along with them. Upon moving to Tennessee, he remained an avid Steelers and Penguins fan.
He was a member of Crosspoint Church. He loved his church and church family as well as his dearest friends Dr. Timothy and Susan Slomer and his beloved dog Sammy.
Memorial services will be conducted 2:00 pm Thursday, April 4, 2019 at Dillow-Taylor Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Greg Doebler officiating. The family will receive friends from 1:30-2:00 pm Thursday prior to the service.

My condolences to Don's wife and family, whom unfortunately I have never met. I am Don's cousin and had not seen him in almost 50 years. As fate would have it I thought about him this past week and decided to try to contact him, only to learn of his recent passing. My condolences, love and wishes also to my cousin Cindy.
