Leo Henry Banaszak III, 63, of Ganges, Michigan unexpectedly passed away Saturday, September 12,
2020. Born the eldest son of Leo Henry Banaszak Jr and Shirley (Minné) Banaszak in South Haven, Michigan on October 4, 1956.

Leo graduated from Fennville High School, Class of 1975 and then proceeded to enter the workforce. He was a very hard worker and spent his years in a variety of occupations to provide for his family which include but not limited to a Butcher at vanHardzveld’s in Fennville, an Auto Mechanic, a Furnace Tender at Western Foundry, Maintenance Machinist at Magna- Donnelly and Challenge Manufacturing. When Leo was not working, he could easily be found splitting wood for his family or helping a friend in need, heading to the New Richmond Bridge to fish with his kids or grandkids, or deer hunting with his dad, brothers, son, or best buddies! All of these adventures began with a stop to “The Little Store”, his favorite spots in Pullman, the gas station or one of the many local restaurants depending on what the plan was for the day.

Leo’s greatest love was for his family. As his children grew and later started families of their own, all the locals would be updated on the happenings of his beloved family. His generosity, kindness, and compassion for others was freely given therefore, Leo knew no stranger. His children frequently had the experience of being stopped by one of his old buddies on the sidewalk or while shopping, simply because they wanted them to know they knew their dad.

In addition to his parents, Leo Jr and Shirley, Leo III is survived by: his brothers, Brian and Robert; the mother of his children, Nellie (Leverich, Banaszak) DeJonge; his daughters, Amy Lynn (Marty) McKellips, Kristen Marie (David) Nonhof; his son, Leo Henry (Catherine) Banaszak IV; his grandchildren, Mattalyn, Samantha, Alison, Madison, Amy-Lynn, RayeAnne, Leo Henry V, Eden, Leland, Nicholai, Kendyl, Audrey, Wyatt, Laela, Marek, and Jesaiahs; his beloved Kim Vecchio; his step-daughter, Cheryl and her family; his step-son, T.J. and his family; nieces and nephews; extended family; and many friends.

Leo was preceded in death by his grandparents on his Father's side, Leo Henry and Cecelia ( Ogradowicz) Banaszak, and on his Mother’s side, Marian Minné and Aschille (Lorraine) Minné.

In Loving Memory of their cherished son, brother, dad and grandpa, the family will receive extended family and friends on Saturday, September 19th from 1:00 to 3:00 PM for a casual gathering with light refreshments, to be held at Corner Bible Church located at 4001 124th Ave.(M-89 and M-40) Allegan MI 49010.

A graveside service will take place at a later date with immediate family only at Taylor Cemetery in
Ganges Township. In lieu of flowers, Memorial Donations may be made to the family in care of Kristen
