What can I say about my Uncle George Janosco, he was one of my best uncles in my life. He was always there when a comforting smile, a man of a few words but when he spoke you would be glad to listen. He reminded me a lot of  two of my other family members Henry and Robert Gagner; they had that very distinctive voice it was like a deep roar of a lion when they spoke. My Uncle George was never a complainer, always calm, generous, in addition to, being a loving and caring man who with my loving Aunt Therese raise four wonderful children. They were very blessed to have parents like yours. 
I will miss him and I thank God for having him in my life and my children's lives. I would only wish I could be half the man he was.  It's our loss and Heaven's gain  to have such an awesome Angel by Gods side.  I will pray and wish to be with you once again someday God willing, you left us with some of your knowledge and skills besides many great memories and a model to live by!
Thank you Uncle George for everything!!
Love you & miss you Uncle George
   Your admirer & nephew Roger St.Pierre

Georgie, so sad to hear of your Dad’s passing. Our hearts are with you, your Mom Theresa, and the Janosco family. Having grown up directly across the street @116 1/2 High Street, I had the pleasure of knowing your Dad. He was truly a wonderful person. He must have been proud of you when he first heard you had borrowed one of your Grandfather’s Reingolds while he was busy weeding his well kept garden...good Slovak dna lives on.
