Henry John Baranoski
Henry John Baranoski, 81, of Conway, S.C., formerly of Middleburg, Pa., passed away on Feb. 7, 2020, at Pruitt Health, Conway, after a brief illness.
He was born Sept. 8, 1938, in Shamokin, Pa., the youngest child of the late Jan and Bertha Baranoski. He was married for 55 years to the former Mary Ann Klunk who survives.

Henry was a 1956 graduate of Coal Township High School. He served in the Army from 1961 to 1963.
He proudly served the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, working at the Selinsgrove Center from 1964 until his retirement in 1991. Henry was also employed by Boscov's Department Store in Selinsgrove where he was a long-time sales associate in the sporting goods department from the time the store was built until the mid-1980s.
In addition to his work, he was very active in his community and served in numerous volunteer capacities. He was a Fourth Degree member of the Knights of Columbus for more than 40 years, a longtime member of St. Pius X Church where he served as lector. He proudly served the Snyder County Democratic Committee as an election judge and served two terms for the Selinsgrove School District and two terms for the Midd-West School District. While he lived in Conway, he was a member of St. James Catholic Church where he also served as a lector.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by four children and their spouses, Andrew (Barbara Klingler), Ann Marie Frakes (Christopher), Matthew (Heather Bickhart), and Adrienne MacKenzie (Brian); two grandchildren, Aidan MacKenzie and Alexis Baranoski; and his constant companion, his giant Schnauzer, Baron.

He was preceded in death by his parents and 12 siblings.

After your move from Kreamer, I'm afraid I lost tract of Henry, but I assisted in selling your home and I bought the Simplicity Lawn tractor. God Bless and my thoughts are with you. Lynn
