CELEBRATION OF LIFE PLANNED FOR KIRK GRYBOWSKI

Oct. 14, 2002 – A celebration of life will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27 at the St. Thomas Yacht Club in honor of Kirk Grybowski who died suddenly of a heart attack Oct. 8 in Chicago. (See "Kirk Grybowski dies suddenly in Chicago."
Kirk's wife Judith said the celebration will include "lots of music," one of Kirk's greatest loves.
Kirk was an avid sailor and tennis player. He and Judith were members and regular volunteers at the Yacht Club.
Judith has asked that in lieu of flowers donations be sent to the Grybowski Family Scholarship in care of the Foundation of the University of the Virgin Islands. The scholarship has taken on a new name. It was originally the Judith Grybowski Nursing Scholarship fund. It was setup by then-UVI President Dr. Orville Kean when Judith retired in May 1999, after 31 years at UVI, to honor her work at the university and to provide assistance to Virgin Islanders who want to become nurses.
Judy said Monday night she had changed the name because "Kirk was an honorary nurse for more than 30 years."
Kirk developed the Emergency Medical Services for the Virgin Islands.
Donations can be sent to Foundation of the University of the Virgin Islands, #2 Brewers Bay, St. Thomas, V.I. 00802
Grybowski is survived by his wife, Judith; son Paul and his wife, Michelle; son Keith and his wife, Nancy; grandchildren, Stephen, 12, Kevin, 9, and Maximillion, 7; many other relatives and a worldwide company of friends.
