Obituary: David Banks, 47, of Scottville.

David Michael Banks, 47, of Scottville passed away Sunday June 19, 2022. David was born January 28, 1975 in Pontiac, the son of Bruce Banks II and Cynthia (Doench) Fulton.

Dave moved with his parents David and Cindy Fulton to Mason County in 1978. He often talked of the Round Lake years and the adventurous childhood he lived there with his brother Bruce, sisters Katie and Kelly and neighborhood friends. David loved playing baseball and having fun. He graduated from Mason County Central with the class of 1993; he furthered his education at West Shore Community College.

On August 3, 2008 Dave married Lisa Hughes and they shared their life together and their love of nature, dogs and happiness at their home on the river north of Scottville.

David was a hard working, fun loving guy who deeply loved his family, friends and his dogs. He loved playing slow pitch softball and was an amazing teammate. Dave was a die-hard Detroit Tigers and Detroit Lions fan and spent his Sundays cheering on the Lions with his dad Dave, brother Bruce and his closest friends; when there was a big play his favorite celebration was “the pancake” a three person high five that he took great pride in perfecting. He also loved mowing the grass and tending to his property, whacking golf balls in the backyard, and playing on Bubba’s pool league team “back in the day”.

He worked many years of his life in the landscaping business, most recently for Larsen’s Landscaping. His work ethic was second to none and he was extremely proud of his projects.

David was preceded in death by his sister Katie Fulton.

Along with his wife Lisa, he will be lovingly remembered by his parents David and Cynthia Fulton, Bruce and Carol Banks; father-in-law and mother-in-law Dean and Susan Hughes; his brothers Bruce (Jody) Banks, Brian (Amy) Banks; his sister Kelly (Joel) Savich; his nephews Bruce Banks IV, David Fulton, Hunter, Owen and Waylon Savich; his nieces Charlie Banks and Mackenzie and Madison Savich, numerous aunts, uncles and cousins, many close friends, his kitties Jasmine and Tigger and his beloved dogs Pepper and Fritz.

A celebration of life will be held in Dave’s honor on Saturday July 9, 2022 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Hissong Residence, 497 S. Reek Road, Custer. Please join his family to share memories with love and laughter.
