He was the loving husband of Linda L. (Cragle) Janowsky. The couple married November 12, 1966 and had 48 wonderful years together. Dick was born on September 5, 1939 in Elmira, NY, son of the late Fritz W. and Grace I. (Wagner) Janowsky. Growing up on the family farm Dick always had a passion for the land and farming it. He was the first Co-Operative in Ridgebury Township to go into the Farm Program. With Dick’s love of the land, he went into the Real Estate business. He was a broker for Strout Realty for 21 years. In those 21 years, Dick was always in the top 25 offices for sales out of 700 offices. He ended his career with Strout to open his own business, Janowsky Realty. He helped many in northern Bradford County sell and buy homes and land until his retirement in 2011. Dick’s motto was always “Bringing People and Places Together”.
Calling hours were held January 2 and 3, 2015 at the Roberts Funeral Home, Inc. 279 Main Street Wellsburg, NY. The funeral service to honor Dick’s life was held January 3 at the Roberts Funeral Home, Wellsburg, NY with his pastor and friend, Rev. Robert Wuethrich officiating.
