With great sadness, we share the sudden passing of Andrew Banton on September 4th 2021, aged 45yrs old.
Andrew was truly one of a kind, a gentle giant who will be forever missed and cherished by his wife of more than twenty years, Julia.
Andrew is survived by his Mum and Dad, Diane and Stephen Banton. Along with his two brothers, Mark and Richard Banton, all of Cheshire, England.
Andrew was born in Cheshire, England and emigrated to Canada almost seven years ago with Julia and their dogs. They were living first in Ontario before moving to Alberta three years ago. He loved his life in Canada and enjoyed all aspects of the outdoors, even venturing along the Alaskan Highway as far as the Yukon on his last road trip with Julia and their two dogs in August.
Andrew was in his element when working in his garage on machinery or restoring vehicles. His prized possession was his Fordson Super Major once belonging to his Grandad, which he lovingly restored to his meticulous standards and brought to Canada with him.
Andrew had a big heart and was the kind of guy you wanted in your corner; he got along with everyone he met and could make everything feel ok simply with his big smile. His humour, and particularly his sarcasm, will be forever remembered amongst his many friends and colleagues.
Andrew was taken far too soon with so much more to live for, forever in our hearts x
Serenity Funeral Service, Leduc.
