In Loving Memory of Arthur L. Banks Sr

Arthur L. Banks Sr. was born on June 20, 1949, in Seattle, Washington, and he passed away on November 25, 2023, at St. Joseph Hospital in Tacoma, WA. The last two months of his life were spent at St. Joseph Hospital, surrounded by his wife AnnMarie and loving family. Arthur peacefully left this world, leaving behind cherished memories that will forever remain in our hearts.

Arthur is survived by his loving wife, AnnMarie Banks; two daughters, Catreena Williams and Emily Murphy (Harold); and two sons, Arthur L. Banks Jr. and Parys Fox. We would be amiss not to mention his honorary children, Octavia Moore, Carneisha Grace, and Zacala Packard, along with a host of other children that he fostered and loved as his own. His parents, siblings, and one grandson all preceded him in death. He was “Big Daddy” to thirteen grandchildren, twelve great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces and nephews. 

In celebration of his life, visitation will be from 10am until time of funeral service at 11am Mon. Dec. 11, 2023 at Holy Temple Evangelistic Center 12600 Renton Ave. S Seattle, WA 98178.
