Herbert H. Banister, 90, of Cumming, GA passed away at home on Tuesday, November 12, 2019 after a yearlong battle with cancer. Born in Cleburne County, AL, he attended Heflin High School where he lettered in football and basketball and was a member of several school clubs. He later entered the U.S. Navy as part of Patrol Squadron Two (VP-2) stationed at NAS Whidbey Island, WA before deploying to NAF Naha, Okinawa to patrol the East China and Yellow Seas during the Korean War.

After leaving the Navy, he ventured north to the border of Kentucky and Ohio for work, where he met his wife, Elia Frances Hunt. Together, Herb and Fran moved south to Louisiana and then Florida where Herb joined International Paper Company's liquid packaging division. It was in Florida where they had and raised their only child, Pamela Jo. Herb retired after a transfer to Atlanta and 35 years with IP.

He loved his family and many lifelong friends made in the Navy, at International Paper Company, and everywhere he lived. He and Fran enjoyed traveling throughout all 50 states, Canada, Mexico, and the
Bahamas. They were members of Pine Grove Baptist Church in Cartersville, GA. Herb was also an avid sports fan, particularly of the Atlanta Braves and Alabama Crimson Tide!

Surviving are his daughter, Pam Banister of Cumming, GA, and sister, Jane Banister Pugh of River Ridge, LA along with many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his wife Fran of 55 years, and two sisters, Grace Pressley and Betty Childs.

Funeral Services will be held Saturday, November 16th at 1 pm in the Chapel of Ingram Funeral Home, Cumming, GA. Family will receive friends for visitation beginning at 11 a.m. at the funeral home the same day of the service. There will be a graveside service on Sunday, November 17th, at 1 pm CST, at Edwardsvile Cemetery in Edwardsville, AL. Should you choose an alternative to flowers, donations may be made in memory of Herbert Banister to the American Cancer Societey.

Private Condolence


Posted at 11:01am
To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.
