WINDBER — ZARNESKY – John “Peanuts,” 75, Windber, died June 25, 2013, at Memorial Medical Center. Born Sept. 27, 1937, in Windber, son of the late Michael and Anna (Sroka) Zarnesky. Survived by daughter, Veronica Murton, married to Daron, Mineral Point; grandchildren, Ryan and Reagan; sisters, Maryann Grabish, married to Thomas, Windber; Dorothy Gindlesperger, married to Earl, Davidsville; and brother, Michael Zarnesky, and girlfriend, Colleen, Davidsville. John was a retired auto mechanic and a U.S. Army veteran, where he drove heavy equipment and trucks. He lived the simple life. You could always find him in his “shandee” working in his garden or going for walks. He was never too busy to lend a hand or give a neighbor a ride somewhere as “Peanuts” was the neighborhood taxi.
