Paul Krenitsky of North Andover, Mass. died on May 4, 2019, aged 91 years. A long- time resident of Chelmsford, Mass, he most recently lived at Edgewood Lifetime Care Community in North Andover.

He had retired from the Mitre Corp in 1993, where as a specialist in radar, he had served as a member of the technical staff since 1967. Prior to that, he was an electronics engineer at General Electric Co. of Syracuse, NY for 13 years.

Born in Dickson City, PA, the son of Mary and Peter Krenitsky, Mr. Krenitsky grew up in Blakely, PA. He served with the US Army in Germany from 1945-1948, emerging with the rank of Staff Sergeant. He received BS and BA degrees in electrical engineering and liberal arts from Lehigh University in 1953, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and then did graduate work in electrical engineering at Syracuse University. He was a licensed professional engineer in New York State.

Mr. Krenitsky was a member of All Saints Church in Chelmsford, MA for 52 years, serving on its Vestry and as parish representative on a number of committees, including the governing body of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, the Diocesan Council. More recently, he served as co-chairperson of the Diocesan Urban Mission Commission and as a member of the committee to select the current Bishop.

From 1968-1980, Mr. Krenitsky was founder and president of the Interfaith Housing Corp. of Greater Lowell, a non-profit volunteer group that secured federal funds to purchase, rehabilitate, and sell homes to middle income families. When the federal program that supported this effort ended, the group sought to purchase land to establish congregate housing for the elderly in North Chelmsford, and the group disbanded in 1981 after having provided housing for 17 Lowell families. Most recently, he has served on the Board of the Merrimack Valley Housing Partnership based in Lowell, and has, for the past 26 years since his retirement, volunteered more than 10 hours per week to that organization as a grant writer.

Also since his retirement, Mr. Krenitsky has pursued his chief enthusiasms of tennis and photography. He was a member of both the Westford Tennis and Fitness Center and the Lowell Camera Club, where he was noted particularly for his black-and-white prints.

He is survived by his wife, Rosemarie Wirth Krenitsky, and three sons: Stephen J. of
of Bluffton, SC; Peter W. of Amesbury, Mass, and Michael P. of Austin, TX, and their wives. Also surviving are his sister, Helen K. Stec of Dalton, PA, four grandchildren Alex, Blair, Colin, and Matt; one great-grandson, Leo, and 12 nieces and nephews.

There will be no calling hours. His funeral will take place at All Saints Church, Chelmsford, on Thursday, May 9, at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in his honor may be made to Merrimack Valley Housing Partnership, Box 1042, Lowell, MA 01853 or to All Saints Church, 10 Billerica Road, Chelmsford, MA 01824.

Sending much love and deep sympathies to Aunt Rosemary and the family in this time of loss. I will always remember Uncle Paul for his great kindness, his gentle humor and his generous spirit- a true gentleman in the truest sense.

A mentor, friend, coworker, more like a grandfather. Had a great sense of humor, unbelievably sharp mind, always teaching us something, “look it up” he would say so that we had to get a dictionary before he would explain words, phrases etc. Paul, I hope there are a lot of pencils and a metal pencil sharpener for you to use in Heaven. Will miss you forever. Rest in Peace

I first met Paul in 2002 when I joined the Board of the Merrimack Valley Housing Partnership in Lowell. He was very welcoming to me and always helpful. During the years that I served as president of the Board Paul was always there for me both as a sounding board and as a wise counselor. Although, he was the oldest person on the board and one who was most familiar with the history of the partnership, Paul was never conceited, never thought himself privileged or above anyone else on the Board. He treated everyone the same. In addition to serving on the board he was also a volunteer in the office helping the organization with grant writing. Also, he never missed an opportunity to take a group photograph in which he always managed to make everyone look good. Very gentle, always humble, never assuming, ever polite and embracing of all people with great empathy. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace, in the bosom of the Lord you served so dearly. Adieu!
