Felix Grycel III

February 22, 1942 - December 22, 2019
Blaine, WA


Felix “John” Grycel IV, age 77, passed away at his home on Sunday, December 22, 2019. He was born February 22, 1942 in Buffalo, New York to Katherine Angello and Felix John Grycel Jr.

John had a variety of careers and interests. He was a graphic artist, owned his own business, and retired as a computer programmer. His main interests were cars, sailboats, and family. He loved spending time in his very large garage working for hours on his cars. He could tell amazing stories, many of them about adventures he had been on with his boat or cars or the people he met along the way. He shared his love for cars and story telling with his brother Robert and Thomas (deceased) Grycel. He was happily married to Barbara Ann Jewell on July 10, 1971. For the past 48 years, they have lived in California, then moved to Port Townsend, WA in 1976 to raise their son Felix “John” Grycel IV for 30 years and, most recently, lived in Blaine, WA to be closer to John, Kimberly and their two sons Kylan John Grycel and Keston Scott Grycel.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to: Support Officer Community Care (PO Box 1102, Bellingham, WA 98227). The volunteers that work as support officers took amazing care of Barbara in the time immediately after John’s death.

  1. Even though we lived so far away from each other, I thought about my father every day and I loved him very much.
    I will miss him for the rest of my life. If I would have been told of his passing, I would have come to the funeral, or at least I could have sent flowers.
    Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

    John has been a friend since high school days. Hooked back up on facebook & emails. Found out we had both moved to northern Washington, he on the west side, me on the east side. Would have loved to meet up but, alas, I waited too long. I appreciate John’s passion in life. RIP good friend.
