Obituary of John P. Janus
John Paul Janus
John Paul Janus, 89, passed away on Friday, April 17, 2020. John was born on June 20, 1930 in Philadelphia, PA. He was the son of the late Joseph Janus and the late Esther (nee Wartenbe).
He is survived by his beloved wife of 57 years, Ann Janus (nee Sullivan), daughters Cindy Tschepikiewski, Linda Caffier, Melissa McMorris, grandchildren, Melissa Yetter, John Patrick Peters, Kelly Quinn, Sean Quinn, Olivia Carey, Julianne Carey, Ryan McMorris, Maggie McMorris, and great grandchildren Ken, Brooks and Ryan Yetter. He is also survived by his many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his beloved daughter AnnMarie Carey and his brothers, Joe, Bill, Paul and Tom.
John proudly served our country during the Korean War in the United States Army. John is a college graduate of LaSalle University and became a successful management consultant and then found additional success as a retail entrepreneur.
John was a devout Catholic. He loved God and his family above all else, his wife beyond measure. The two could jitterbug dance better than anyone else. He traveled abroad and to many wonderful destinations throughout his life. However, most of all he enjoyed spending winters with his wife in Long Boat Key, Florida and summers with her in Avalon, New Jersey. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed fishing on his boat, “Daddy’s Girls.” He also enjoyed a good football game, especially if the Philadelphia Eagles were playing.
His faith and optimism knew no bounds. Perhaps that explains why many family and dear friends sought his sage advice. No matter the task, his approach was to get organized, think it through, and execute with a smile. He was thoughtful and kind to so many that were lucky enough to cross his path.
Due to the unprecedented global events, a private funeral service, Mass and internment will be held on Tuesday, April 21, 2020.
