Phil Bannister Obituary, Death – The following is the official statement made by the son: My father, Phil Bannister, passed away peacefully in the wee hours of yesterday morning. His passing occurred in the early morning hours. I am aware that some of you knew him on a more personal level than others, therefore I thought it would be appropriate to make a post on Facebook alerting you of his demise. I am sorry for your loss. When he was younger, this picture was taken of him astride the first horse he ever rode. He had spent the better part of his adult life pursuing a lifetime love in horses and using them as a source of money. Cheers people.
In some of the sympathy messages sent to Chris, it was written, “My deepest condolences for the loss of your loved one.” Sue communicated the information to my mother by calling her. In the name of your family on this side of the sea, please extend our deepest condolences to Martin and the rest of the family and ask them to communicate those condolences to the rest of the family. There won’t be anyone quite like your father again.
“Chris, I am so sorry to learn this troubling information. Phil was such a pleasant person; David and I had a few conversations with him, the majority of which were about horses. you are in our hearts and minds, and know that we are sending you hugs and love”….. “I’m sorry for the loss you’ve suffered, Chris.I was able to engage in conversation with him on a few occasions while I was attending your events. I still remember the outside event at Heskin hall that he planned and arranged many years ago. Chris Bannister and the Lost Angels are the name of the band.
