October 7, 1996 - October 2, 2020
Austin James "AJ" Bank, 23 of Bristol, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, October 2, 2020. He was born October 7, 1996 in Geneva, IL. to Wendy and Mark Bank. To know Austin was to love him. He could light up any room and had a smile to warm any heart. Austin was a 2015 graduate of Marmion Academy and attended The University of Wyoming and Waubonsee College. He was a tri-athlete playing football, baseball and lacrosse as a Marmion Cadet. He was in the ROTC program during his time at Marmion. AJ was an avid Chicago Bears and Blackhawks fan and attended many games with his dad. Some of AJ's favorite memories were the times he spent with friends and family at his Northwoods cabin where he enjoyed fishing, ATV-ing, snowmobiling and snowboarding. AJ loved to travel with his family and had more adventures in his short 24 years of life than most have in a lifetime. AJ came to work for the family business and was CFO of White Eagle Auto Body for three years. AJ was known for his quick-witted humor and showed compassion to all those who knew him. AJ was a one-of-a-kind son, grandson, brother, uncle, nephew and friend. He was so loved by his family and will be deeply missed. AJ leaves behind his loving parents, Wendy (Harris) and Mark Bank; his sisters Paige (Ryan) Deane and Payton Bank; his nieces Blaire and Briar Deane; step-grandma; several aunts, uncles and cousins and many friends and his best friend, "Charlie" his dog. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, and Virginia and Rodger E. Harris. AJ's favorite quote: "With Strong Winds and Following Seas, Mate, You Will Be Missed!" A funeral mass will be offered on Saturday, October 10, 2020 at 10:00 am at St. Patrick Church, 406 Walnut St., Yorkville, IL 60560. Fr.
