February 12, 1955 - April 24, 2022
Legacy of Love In my Father’s House are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:2 Marvin Edward Banks was born to the late Joseph Brown and Edna Mae Banks in Baltimore, Maryland on February 12, 1955. On Sunday, April 24, 2022, he was called home. Marvin is preceded in death by his brother, Alvin Banks. He received and accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior in 1980. Marvin was spiritual in his own way and believed in his Almightly Savior. He received his education in the Baltimore Maryland Public School System and later received his GED. He furthered his education and trained as a sheet metal apprentice at the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. In 1982, Marvin would go to work for several commercial and government jobs in that field. He was formerly employed by Colonial Webb Contractors as a HVAC Specialist, where he later retired. He would go on to teach his son the trade, he himself was very proud of. Marvin was a devoted and proud father to his only birth child Joey and was known to always have him nearby. He will be remembered as a laid back but very hardworking man that loved to fish and spend time with his son and grandchildren. He also was known as someone who loved to laugh and tell jokes. During the 80’s and early 90’s, Marvin would frequently travel to Virginia to visit family with his son, until he permanently relocated to Richmond. He was a wonderful companion, grandfather, uncle and friend that loved spending time with family. He adored his grandchildren. They are an extension of his heart beat. He was the kindest and gentlest man and would do anything for anyone. Marvin also known as “Fish” and “Pops” leaves to cherish his memory and legacy to his two sons, Marvin “Joey” (fiance’ Tracy Lightsey) and Eddie “EJ” Morgan; four grandchildren, Cameron Banks, Mariyah Banks, Kevon Jefferson and KeShawn Jefferson; sister, Joanne Banks-Brown; brother, Joseph “Sonny” Brown Banks; best friend and companion, Wanda Cummins; and a host of other relatives and friends. We ask each of you to keep “Marvin” live in your hearts. We were all touched by his presence. Live life to the fullest and keep his legacy alive.
