I Say... GDPR - Data portability and Data Deletion

Another General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) topic for discussion:

From various sources I've been reading, the subject data is spoke like they have a right to ownership of their personal data collected/stored by a controller.

If this is the case, am I, as a controller, allowed to simply delete data without notifying the subjects?

For example, I maintain a customer database with names, addresses, and email correspondence history. At some point we decide to purge the database of all customers that have not been active for more than 3 years. Am I required to notify all these customers? ...what happens if, hypothetically, one of these customers then came to me an requested portability of their data under the GDPR?

As I read more about the GDPR, there are so many grey-area hypothetical situations I'm conjuring up, it'll be interesting to see how the regulations will be enforced in practice...
