OBITUARY OF ROBERT JOSEPH JANIK
JANIK, Robert J. (Bob)
Major, (retd.) Royal Canadian Corps of Signals, Canadian Airborne Regiment. C.D., M.M.M.
Little Green Monster, Paratrooper, Ultralight Aviator, Rabble Rouser, and Argument Winner. Beloved Husband of 61+ years to Joanne and Father of Anthony (Karen). Bob made his final jump from this world to the next, April 6, 2022.
Bob joined the Canadian Army in 1953 as a Soldier Apprentice, made his first parachute jump at the age of 18 and served this nation honorably for the better part of 4 decades, including service in Egypt 1965 - 1966, Cyprus 1974 and Germany 1984 - 1987. In 1968 he was an original member of the Canadian Airborne Regiment.
Bob was a lover of animals; strays were attracted to his Inverary yard knowing they would find sanctuary or at the very least, treats. An avid reader, Bob considered learning to be a continuous process. The Salvation Army held a special place in his heart for the assistance they gave his family when he was young and his was a familiar face around Kingston manning a Kettle every Christmas. Service was in his blood.
Also left to mourn his passing are sister Dianna Stewart (Howie), sister Carole Brown, brother Bill Janik, all of Winnipeg, MB, sister-in-law Ruth Lewis (Bert) of Ottawa, sister-in-law Sharon Fraser and brother-in-law Frank Manzer (Bonnie) of Fredericton, NB. Numerous nieces and nephews, Jo's great friend Sharon Palmer, his Airborne Brothers, and his flying buddies.
There will be no funeral however a celebration of Bob's life will be held at a future date.
As an expression of sympathy; donations to The Salvation Army or The Military Communications and Electronics Museum Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
Our grateful thanks to the Doctors and Nurses on Davies 4 at KGH.
