James Banner, Jr

We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our father, son, brother, uncle, cousin, grandfather, and friend, James Edward Banner Jr. who passed away peacefully on April 1, 2024 at the James Center in Columbus, Ohio.

James was born in Columbus, Ohio to James E. Banner Sr. and Patricia A. Banner on April 5, 1967. He moved to Dayton, Ohio at the age of 16 years old where he finished school obtaining his G.E.D. He remained in Dayton until his passing. He celebrated his 57th birthday in Heaven with his paternal grandparents, William Banner and Irene Thomas; maternal grandparents, Pete and Clara Adams; uncle, Gary Banner Sr.; sister, Toyia Banner-Harvey; daughter, Charina Terrell and son-in-law, Fredrick.

James leaves to cherish his memories, his children, Jayla Banner, Darion Hiles, and Tamitria Hiles; grandchildren, Rhythm Tramble, Superior Tramble and Cameron Zuccola; mother, Patricia Banner; father, James Banner; sisters, Dezera Banner, and Gina Banner (Mike Moncrief Sr,); nephews, Kevin, LaVone’, Kendall and LaMarr Banner; nieces, Burgundy, Lakenyia, Lakeisha Oliver, and a host of cousins, aunts, and uncles.

James enjoyed the finer things in life like jazz, country music, a cold glass of whiskey, sitting on the porch and most of all, his family. James was employed with Dmax for 20 plus years until falling ill where he touched many lives. He will always be remembered by his tough skin but soft and loving heart.

His spirit will live through us and he will be protecting us from Heaven.

Visitation 1:00pm and Funeral 2:00pm Saturday, April 13, 2024 at MARLAN J. GARY FUNERAL HOME, THE CHAPEL OF PEACE NORTH, 2500 Cleveland Ave.
