Paul J. Dmytryck, age 78, passed away on Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at Valerie Manor, in Torrington, CT, surrounded but his loving family and friends after a long struggle with Parkinson’s disease. He was the husband of Lea (Toto) Dmytryck for 53 years.

In 1966, Paul started a part time painting and decorating company, which continues successfully today with his son and daughter-in-law, Stephen and Gianna,  at the helm. Helping to ‘beautify the NW corner’ was Paul’s goal!
Paul spent his spare time doing projects around his home and reveling in his passion for his family, which grew as his family grew. He was also involved in area Community Theater and could often be seen backstage with a hammer or paintbrush.
His devotion to his faith was a touchstone for Paul. A communicant of St. Thomas of Villanova Church in Goshen, Paul served as an usher and was a 4th degree member of the Knights of Columbus, Council 13128.
Besides his beloved wife, Lea, of 53 years, Paul leaves a son, Stephen Dmytryck and his wife Gianna of Torrington, two daughters, Paula Wiley of Harwich, MA and Leanne Dmytryck, a sister, Helen Goodwin of Millis, MA, his treasured grandchildren, Jeremy Wiley, Lea Milton, Jessica Milton and Gabriel Dmytryck who brought him much joy and pride and several nieces and nephews.
His loving family and many friends will remember Paul for his loving spirit, his devotion and loyalty and especially for his humor and wit!
