Edward A. Jankoski, 93, beloved husband of Florence (Sypek) Jankoski for 65 years, passed away peacefully Nov. 17, 2021 after a short illness with family at his bedside. Born Jun. 5, 1928 in New Britain, he was the son of Adam and Filumena (Winalski) Jankoski. He lived in Bristol his entire life and attended local schools, graduating from Bristol High School in 1946. Edward married Florence (Sypek) Jankoski on Jul. 14, 1956 and had three sons. Despite valiantly fighting several health issues over the last thirty years he always had time to enthusiastically help his three sons with whatever building projects they were working on regardless of how large or small. His favorite pastime was pulling the slot machine levers with his wife at whichever casino was offering the best perks.
He worked at the Stanley Works for 43 years first as a draftsman, and then as a planning and project engineer, receiving numerous awards for building energy conservation in the 1970’s. He retired from Stanley Works in 1989. He was a U.S. Army veteran of the Korean War and served in the 45th Infantry Division from 1950 - 1952.
Edward is survived by his wife Florence, three sons and their wives, James and Valerie from Bristol, David from Bristol, Ronald and Jennifer from Burlington, seven grandchildren: Tyler and Justin; Jonathan and Robert; Edward, Abigail, and Emily. He was predeceased by a younger brother Stanley, his father Adam, and his mother Filumena.
