John Peter Hermanofski, 65, of Hunlock Creek, passed away Tuesday, March 23, 2021.
Born March 6, 1956, in Nanticoke, John was the son of the late Joseph and Eleanor Lozden Hermanofski. John was a graduate of Nanticoke Area High School Class of 1974. As a teenager, he met Millie, the love of his life, while she was working at Carrols in Nanticoke. He even got a job there himself so he could spend time with her. John served honorably in the Pennsylvania National Guard, later worked for D&H Railroad, and was most recently a health and safety specialist for Aptim.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Edward.
Surviving are his beloved wife of 42 years, Millie Mieczkowski Hermanofski; daughters, Amber Vadovic and her spouse, Don, Shickshinny; Brianne Hermanofski, Kingston; Jessica Narsavage and her spouse, Kyle, Mountain Top; Caitlyn Hermanofski, Wilkes-Barre; and sons, John and Cameron Hermanofski, at home; sisters, Marie Ambrose and her spouse, Tom, Pittsburgh; Marge Gensel and her spouse, Ted, Shickshinny; Corinne Hermanofski, Honey Pot; brothers, Joseph Hermanofski and his spouse, Barbara, Honey Pot; Robert Hermanofski, Nanticoke, and companion, Darlene Romanoski; sister-in-law, Marlene Hermanofski, Hanover Twp.; and numerous nieces and nephews.
John loved traveling with his wife and family. He especially loved their vacations to the beach, countless Caribbean cruises, and trips to casinos. His favorite vacations were ones where he could swim in clear, blue water and relax with his toes in the sand.
John worked hard to provide for his family and his job required him to travel extensively, starting with his time with D&H Railroad, until his current position with Aptim. He was fortunate to meet so many wonderful coworkers and friends and kept in touch with many over the years. One of his favorite assignments was the time he spent in New Orleans, La., where he fell in love with the food, culture and music.
When he was home, he looked forward to spending weekends with his family. On Saturday nights, he was sure to be singing along to his favorite rock and blues artists, trying to get his wife to dance in the kitchen with him. He was a grill master and always cooked more than his family could possibly eat. He was looking forward to the arrival of his grandchild due in April. John will be deeply missed by all those that knew him.
A private service for the family will be held at Stanley S. Stegura Funeral Home, 614 S. Hanover St., Nanticoke.
John was exceedingly proud of the military service of each of his brothers. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in John’s memory to DAV (Disabled American Veterans) Charitable Service Trust https://cst.dav.org
