John enjoyed playing in many local bands and worked recently at Mansion Recording Studio. He also enjoyed fishing. John was a devoted, loving family man. We will miss you! We love you! John Janos, better known as Bear to some, had many hidden talents. His smile could light up the room in two seconds, and it did. Bear was involved in music from a young age, playing in bands with his childhood friends. Although he chose to be a firefighter, many don't know the contribution he made to local artists. Bear built the Mansion studio with close friends in order to help talented young artists in this area start their career. He watched out for everyone, from colleagues, to clients, to people he barely knew. John's remarkable way to help people in an aspects will reverberate throughout our lives forever. Bear, we love you, you will be missed. Funeral Services will be held at St. Thomas Aquinas Church, Highland Ave., Binghamton, Wednesday at 10 a.m. Reverend Gerald J. Buckley and Reverend Corey S. VanKuren, Binghamton Fire Department Chaplains, will officiate. Burial will be in Vestal Hills Memorial Park at the convenience of the family. The family will receive friends at the J.A.
