Gordon Arthur Banks
March 23, 1948 - April 18, 2001

Funeral arrangements by Thorpe Bros. Funeral Home & Chapel

At home on Wednesday, April 18, 2001 at the age of 53, after a courageously fought battle, beloved husband of Brenda; devoted father and friend to Heather and Scott; dear son of Hazel Banks and dear brother of Douglas and his wife Sheron (Pt. Colborne); sadly missed by his nieces Tamara Culp and Chantal and Kristen Banks.

Gord will also be missed by his in-laws Bonnie (Neil) Fontaine, Barry (Lori) Sabo and Bev Sabo and their families. Gord always loved his “aunt” Velma and her family. Roberta has always had a special place in his heart and he especially loves her and John’s girls Brittney and Courtney. There is one other special girl in his life named Lillian Grace Culp who came into our lives June 11, 2000. She made his eyes sparkle every time he saw her.

Gord will be fondly remembered by his many friends and colleagues from his many years with Conklin Shows, B.J. Games and the Canadian National Exhibition Casino. Gord had a seventeen year association with the Brant Figure Skating Club. He served as treasurer and always loved to help backstage at the annual Flashing Blades. He also served as second vice-president of Brantford Minor Sports Association. Through his association and hard work with the skating club he was shown the appreciation of others with many awards and honours.

He received the 1995 Presidents Award from Brantford Minor Sports Association. In 1996 he co-chaired the organizing committee for the Gold Medallion Precision Competition. In 1997 he was nominated by the club and the Western Ontario section for the Wittnauer/Canadian Figure Skating Association Volunteer award of Excellence which was awarded him in a ceremony in Toronto. Gord received the 1998 Brant Figure Skating Clubs Professional Coaches award for Club Spirit. In June 1998 Gord received the Brantford Minor Sports Award of Merit for outstanding contribution to minor sports in the City of Brantford. In September 2000 Gord became an honourary member of the Brant Figure Skating Club in recognition of outstanding service to the club and the sport of figure skating. Gord also became involved in other skating endeavours such as being in charge of transportation for major national and international competitions at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton in 1996, 1997 and 1998 Canadian Figure Skating Association Championships, which could not have been completed without the help of many individuals, especially Wayne Millward and Scott Russell. Cremation has taken place.
