James Howard Banks Obituary
September 8, 1938 - June 11, 2016 Jim Banks, our treasured father, grandfather, and loved one, passed away at home on June 11, 2016. Born in Toronto, Canada, he moved to Los Angeles in 1965 to begin his family. He worked as a tax accountant his entire life, and loved spending time with his clients, whom he considered friends. His greatest joy was his family, and it grew larger over the years. He is survived by his children Jennifer (Michael), Brian (Joanna), Jon (Julie), Andrew (Elad), and James. He was loved by his partner Karen Schwartz and her family, and his brothers Leonard and Richard and their families. He was Papa to Zachary, Audrey, Ben, Josh, Conor, Matthew, Joey, Maya, Abe, Levi, Margaret, and three more grandchildren due later this year. We mourn the loss of a very special man, but celebrate his memory. In lieu of flowers, the family requests a donation to the Katz Summer in Israel Scholarship at University Synagogue in Brentwood.
