Obituary of Edward Steven Yanchok

Edward Steven Yanchok, age 79, passed away on Saturday March 30th, 2019 at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset in Somerville NJ. Born in Newark, Ed grew up in Union, resided shortly in Springfield, then moved to Warren 58 years ago.

Ed was very active in the Warren PTA when his children were going to school, was a former member of the Warren Board of Adjustments and member of the Jaycees.

Ed’s favorite past time was trapshooting.
