Obituary of Paul Smyth

Paul Spencer Smyth, loving husband and father of five children passed away at the age of 81 on Saturday, May 1st, 2021 in Portland, Oregon.


Spencer was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland March 2, 1940 to Robert & Elizabeth (Greer) Smyth. He was educated at Saint Malachy’s College. On July 2, 1962 he married Alice McCurry, and they immigrated to Montreal, Canada, where their first four children were born. 


Spencer entered the electronics industry as a buyer at Canadian Marconi Company. In 1969 the family relocated to the Bay Area in California, and in 1979 made their home in Portland, Oregon. Spencer grew his purchasing and materials management skills during the high-tech revolution at Intel Corporation, Epson, and InFocus Systems where he culminated his career as Commodities Director.


Spencer and Alice retired in January 2000 and enjoyed their senior years together with family and friends. Some of the highlights of this season were their travels through their beloved Irish homeland.


Spencer is survived by his wife, Alice of 59 years, five children & their spouses, Carolyn (and Michael), Patrick (and Jean), Roger (and Colleen), Brendan (and Georgia) and Maureen (and Tom); twelve grandchildren; his siblings, Carol, Betty & Sister Geraldine O.P.; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.


He was a parishioner at Resurrection Catholic Parish for twenty years, where he volunteered with the St. Vincent de Paul Society.


One of Spencer’s favorite Irish expressions was, “Slán Abhaile” (Safe Home). With love from all his family, we exclaim, “Slán Abhaile, Spencer! ~ until we meet again in our Heavenly Home.”
