Dr. Janice was.a wonderful human being. His knowledge of history was outstanding. I was always sad when the class was over because I wanted to hear more. His gentle nature was evident all of the time and he was anxious to help all who had questions. Those of us who knew him felt is was a pleasure to register and take for classes.

Dr. Janick was a wonderful inspirational man. I had his building America class many years ago at WCSU. He was kind, helpful, brilliant, understanding and just an all around great guy. He will be missed.

Your Father was a very humble man. When my mom was alive she volunteered at Dorothy Day and he would come in on the fridays and wash dishes. God bless your family during this sad time.

I took every class that Dr. Janick taught and became a history teacher due to him. I often hear his voice telling me the stories of the architecture and cities of this country.

He was the best story teller and he had a gift of making people feel the importance
