  • I am so sorry to hear of Harold’s passing. I met Harold about 30 years ago. We played in the last group in Hindman’s club championship, which Harold won. After the tournament Harold asked me to let him buy me dinner and he wanted to show me a few things about my golf swing. In just a few minutes at the range, Harold had me hitting the ball better than I ever had. I was so impressed that he wanted to help a guy he didn’t even know. He went on to help my Dad, wife, and son learn more about golf. Harold and I played in many tournaments together, but all he did for my golf swing does not compare to the benefits I had of just being his friend. Harold taught me much about life and even more about friendship. I will so miss those conversations and calling his house late and night and Rhonda’s sweet voice saying, “Hello Mike”. She always knows my voice even when we haven’t talked in years. I’m praying for Rhonda, Kyrstal, Harold Jr. and family. I know it was a great honor to be family with such a great man as it was to be his friend. Michael Weeks

  • Dear Rhonda: Thinking of you with heartfelt sympathy. Condolences to the entire Banks family. Philippians 4:13.
