GRIGAS, Joseph "international Joe"
Joseph "international Joe" GRIGAS, D.C.M. departed this life early on 08 March 2005 in the Western Counties Wing of Parkwood Hospital in London, Ontario. A native of Worcester, Massachusetts, U.S.A., Joe was born on 15 February 1915. A self-described loner with a family that was not close, he marched through life to his own drum. After serving a short enlistment in the U.S. Army (14th Inf Regt in Panama Canal Zone) in the early 1930's Joe went to Spain as a volunteer in the Abraham Lincoln Battalion of the international Brigades of the Republican Army. He was captured by the Fascists and spent a year and a half in captivity before being released. He returned to the U.S.A. and in 1940 went to Montreal to enlist in the Canadian Army (Active). He joined The Royal Canadian Regiment in England. He was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal for his actions in leading his Section in the successful attack and capture of an Italian Costal Artillery Battery at Pachimo on the 10th of July, 1943. Joseph was wounded and captured (again) at Regalbuto in Sicily but was left behind by the retreating Germans in an Italian hospital. On rejoining The Royal Canadian Regiment Joe continued to serve until 1944 when he was invalided out. He returned to the U.S.A. where he spent the next half-century living, sometimes quietly, sometimes not, on the fringes of society, hand to mouth but never with his hand out for a handout. Betrayed by his advancing years and increasing infirmity, Joe related his story to a friend, Mr. Bill Carrick of Worcester. Bill contacted The Royal Canadian Regiment and before too much time had passed Joe found the country he had once helped was willing to help him. Joe complained as only a soldier can (or has the right to) complain and when his complaining faded we knew the end was near. We thank the staff of 4th Floor Bruce at Parkwood for helping to smooth some of the bumps in the road on Joe's final journey.
Cremation has taken place. A Regimental Association Memorial Service will be held at Wolseley Barracks W.O's and Sgt's Mess at 1100 on Saturday 12 March 2005. Memorial donations to the Royal Canadian Regiment Museum, 750 Elizabeth Street, London, Ontario N5Y 4T7 would be appreciated by his Regimental family. That is where some of the stories of Joe and his generation are told. (A. Millard George Funeral Home, London, entrusted with arrangements, 433-5184). Pro Tatria.

Joe GRIGAS: a 'natural soldier'
'International Joe' had a love of travel, a love of action and the respect of his Friends.
By Jael WONG, and Peter GEIGEN- MILLER, Free Press Reporter
Before he died, Joseph (International Joe) GRIGAS had his favourite dish -- sardines. The decorated war veteran developed a liking for the fish more than 60 years ago after he was taken prisoner during the Spanish Civil War.
He and his fellow prisoners -- 150 Americans in all -- were given nothing to eat for 13 months but sardines and beans.
"Joe was a survivor, so Joe learned to like sardines and beans and he ate them with relish. For the rest of his life, sardines and beans were his favourite dishes," said retired Capt. Robert WALSH.
He met GRIGAS two years ago through the Royal Canadian Regiment Association.
GRIGAS -- dubbed International Joe because he had been to many countries -- died March 8 at Parkwood Hospital in London at age An American, he fought in the Second World War as part of the London-based Royal Canadian Regiment.
He was awarded a Distinguished Conduct Medal -- one level below the Victoria Cross -- for leading a group of soldiers in capturing two enemy machine-gun nests in Sicily in 1943.
But no one at the Royal Canadian Regiment knew what happened to GRIGAS for 58 years after the war and it was thought he was dead. In fact, there's a gold brick at the Royal Canadian Regiment Museum in London in his memory, said Capt. Duncan McMILLAN.
So McMILLAN was intrigued when he learned GRIGAS was in a veterans' shelter in the United States and wanted to come back to Canada.
McMILLAN and two veterans went to see GRIGAS on Veterans' Day in 2000 and confirmed his identity. The Royal Canadian Regiment arranged to have GRIGAS moved to Parkwood Hospital in June 2003, where he lived for the past two years.
A native of Worcester, Massachusetts., with Lithuanian roots, GRIGAS was "a natural soldier at heart," said WALSH, going wherever the action was.
"He liked to travel a lot and he liked adventure and when he didn't have that, he didn't have much of a life."
Tara O'CONNOR, who befriended GRIGAS at the Worcester veterans shelter in 1994, said he lived a vagabond existence, spending most of the year "in the weeds," a term explained as "anywhere you lay your head at night."
Once age finally caught up with GRIGAS, O'CONNOR helped him find an apartment in a complex for the elderly.
It was not an easy adjustment.
"He wouldn't sleep in his new bed, telling me it was too civilized," said O'CONNOR. "And on more than one occasion, I found him cooking a can of beans directly on the electric stove top."
After his release from the Spanish prison camp in 1939, he returned to the U.S., but didn't stay long. In 1940, he went to Montreal to enlist in the Canadian Army because the U.S. was not yet involved in the Second World War. He joined Canadian troops in England.
He served until he was injured in 1944 and returned to the U.S. For the next 50 years, he worked at odd jobs.
GRIGAS never married and didn't make Friends easily.
"But once he accepted you as a friend, he was a very good friend," said WALSH.
McMILLAN agrees, noting he has heard praises for GRIGAS's character from veterans of the Spanish Civil War.
"When he was held in captivity by the Nationalists, by the Fascists, he was regarded as someone who was trustworthy," said McMILLAN. "You didn't have to watch your back with him."
