Edward (Swinty) Janora of Nanticoke, PA, who was born July 14, 1939 to Sophia (Troyan) and Joseph Janora, beloved husband of 57 years of Joan (Kulakowski) Janora, passed away peacefully on February 13, 2022 after a prolonged illness. He was a 1957 graduate of Nanticoke High School and served 2 years active duty in the Army artillary division, where he spent time in Korea, Texas, Oklahoma and Georgia. He worked as a bricklayer from 1965 to 2001. He had a lifelong love of the outdoors, including fishing and hunting. He served as the President of the Lucky 14 Club for 30 years and was Secretary of the Took-A-While Sportsman Club. Later in life he became an avid golfer and took up wine-making, even growing his own grapes. Even through his illness, Swint could be counted on for his charming smile and a quick- witted laugh.
