  4. Pleased to share my condolences on behalf of Christ Temple Mission Church where Deacon and Sis. Banks served admirably. He will be missed for his dedication to the Lord; his wisdom and love for his family. Ever the coach and full of advice; Deacon Banks always had something to contribute to any conversation.
