Banks, City Council, Volunteer

Memorial service for Banks’ Ray Deeth to be held Saturday

A memorial service for Banks’ Ray Deeth will be held Saturday, March 12 in Schlegel Hall at Sunset Park in Banks (12765 NW Main Street) from 12 to 4 p.m.

Deeth, a longtime politician, volunteer, and generally influential person in the Banks business and wider community, died December 21, 2021 of heart failure. According to city councilor Marsha Kirk, Deeth’s family opted to wait until his 87th birthday to hold the memorial. Refreshments will be served.

Deeth was a well-known figure to nearly everyone in Banks. Even if they didn’t know his name, a Banks resident would likely have seen him rolling down the street in his famed golf cart. 

“Well known as being the “Old fart in the Cart”, Ray helped to renovate the Banks Chamber of Commerce and was one of the Founders of the Banks Historical Society,” Kirk wrote of Deeth.
