Leonard Michael Banga

It is with a broken heart that I announce the passing of my dear husband, Leonard Michael Banga, age 42. He died on October 10, 2016 from injuries sustained from a plane crash. He was a loving father and grandfather. Len, the love of my life and my best friend was unstoppable, brave, daring, hardworking, loyal, generous and badass. When Len had a dream, idea or a vision, he always went to the X-treme. Going to work every day wasn’t a job for Len. He was going in to see the other side of his family. He was an inventor, entrepreneur, founder and a 10 out of 10 friend. There is a saying in business, “Anybody can be replaced.” But whoever said that never met Lenny. Leonard is cherished by his wife Michelle; daughters, Promise and Brooklyn; and granddaughter, Nixyn; his parents, Mike and Elsie; his siblings, Patricia (Reg) Fairburn, Thomas (Roberta), Scott (Connie), Leanne (Kevin), Les (Robin), Linda (Darcy) Korol; mother-in-law, Faith Koopman; sister-in-laws, Vanessa (Trevor), Jennifer (Solomon); and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. A service will be held at 2 p.m., Wednesday October 19th at Circle Drive Alliance Church, 3035, Preston Avenue, Saskatoon, SK. Private Interment will be held at a later date. We would like to thank all the first responders involved in getting our boys out. Contributions in memory of Leonard may be made to Nechako Valley Search and Rescue. Or mail to, Box 378, Vanderhoof, BC, V0J 3A0. Arrangements in care of John Schachtel- Mourning Glory Funeral Services (306-978-5200)
