Albert "Al" Jay Pardee

Albert Jay Pardee, known as Al to friends and family, age 65, of Metamora, Ohio, passed away peacefully in his home, Thursday afternoon, October 11, 2018, following a long battle with cancer.  Al will best be remembered as a loving husband, father, musician and restauranteur.

He was born November 10, 1952 in Buffalo, New York to the late Joan (Melbrod) and Grant Pardee.  Al graduated from Kenmore West High in Kenmore, New York.  Al married Paula Marie Glowinski on June 10, 1984 in New York, and she survives.  He is also survived by his sons, Jason (Jenny) Pardee, Jeffrey (Kim) Pardee, Grant (Ashlyn) Pardee and Marc (Anna) Pardee; 6 grandchildren, Jackson, Josselyn, Juliana, Camden, Kristen and Jameson; brother, Marty and his sister, Ann.

His restaurant career spanned decades, but Al was best known in the industry for owning and operating Sylvania Diner for 12 years.  He was also a talented bassist, and had a passion for playing the bass guitar in multiple bands over his lifetime.  A native of the Buffalo, New York area, Al was also a diehard Buffalo Bills fan.  He was a member of the Sylvania Moose Lodge #1579.

Visitation will be held Wednesday, October 17th from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home, 413 E. Main St. in Metamora (419.644.3601). Services will be held Thursday, October 18th at 11:00 a.m. in Peace Chapel at Toledo Memorial Park in Sylvania.

Al’s family is grateful to all the people who were always there for him in his time of need, especially, Dr. John Evanoff and his staff, members of the Metamora Fire Department and Hospice.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the family, Metamora Fire Department or Ebeid Promedica Hospice.
