LeRoy enjoyed fishing, traveling and watching Old Western movies. Leroy also loved his R & B music. Among some of his favorite artists were Al Green and Sam Cooke and he could tear up a dance floor like he was James Brown! LeRoy had a great sense of humor and was quite the jokester. He liked cars and was a wonderful mechanic, as well as “handyman”, conquering almost any task that needed completed. LeRoy's most prized possessions were his children (and anyone else’s as far as that goes)! He was a very supportive man and was a great “big brother” to many. LeRoy had a strong faith in the Lord and was baptized at Unity of Love Baptist Church in Chicago, IL by Reverend C.H. Long.
LeRoy was preceded in death by his parents, LeRoy Banks, Sr. and Beatrice Noel; wife, Linda Jane Banks; an infant brother and sister and several aunts and uncles.
