January 27, 2013
Mary, Doug, Tim - I am so sorry to read of your loss. The Janney family was such a part of my growing up in Trilby. My father going to the hardware store on Christmas Eve to buy mother's present became a tradition in the family.
January 26, 2013
He was an exceptional role model to many of the kids who grew up in Trilby. The neighborhood was a special place because of folks like Mr. Janney.
January 25, 2013
Mary, Doug and Tim, I am so sorry for your loss. Joe was more than a great man. He was a good husband, father friend and businessman. I received a call from Orlando and an Email from Antonio and we talked about the great time we had together at your house. They wished the distance was smaller and could be here to confort you. We all will miss him a lot. Ciao Carlo and Gail.

Mrs. Janney,Doug and Tim,
Deepest sympathy to all of you. So many memories of Trilby are connected with the Janney family - from the fire siren calling the volunteers to many trips into the store with my father. It was a pleasant chance encounter to talk with Mr. and Mrs. Janney at Manhattan's a few years ago. Condolences from Bob and me to all of you.
January 24, 2013
Sad to hear of Joe's passing. It brings back a flood of warm memories of the man and the way he treated my "Mom" as her employer and friend for so many years. I also don't remember a cross word to me as I worked at the store through my school years. Without a father of my own, Joe was a great role model for me.
January 24, 2013
Doug & Tim, How fortunate you were to have your Dad for all these years. He was an icon in the hardware industry, and someone I always enjoyed visiting with and learning from. I'm sure you will both miss him, but carry many wonderful memories. Your good friend and your National salesman. Lou Savage

Joe did so much for so many. We'll always appreciate the kindness you and Joe extended to my parents,especially when they became very ill. Joe lived his life well and we'll all be left with fond memories of him. Imagine the greeting in heaven by the Trilby firemen. Let the card games begin!

You had a great hardware!

To The Janney Family:

So very sorry for your loss!

Ah, the memories the Hardware store brings back!

My grandparents, my parents, and my uncles go way, way back with the Janney family!

My grandparents were Frederick and Julia Wistinghausen who lived on Smith Road. In fact, two streets off Smith Road are named "Frederick" and "Julia" Drives after my grandparents. My Mother, Minnie Wistinghausen Powers Allison, is still living in Florida. She is 103 years old! Her brothers, Lawrence and Kenneth Wistinghausen are both deceased.

Mr. Janney was a legend in Trilby, as was his family! What a nice, nice man!

I will tell my Mother of Mr. Janney's passing and I know she will be very saddened by the news.

(When my parents eloped on July 28, 1933, they rented an apartment above the drug store in Trilby that I believe was owned by the Janney family!)

God Bless you all.

God speed, Mr. Janney.

In Sympathy,
