Lee D. Banner, a Fishkill resident since 1976, passed away suddenly at home on Thursday, June 4, 2020. He was 75.
He was born in Rochester on March 14, 1945. After graduating from High School, Lee enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserves and served until he was honorably discharged in 1971.
Lee was a Licensed Real Estate Associate Broker for Weichert Realtors in Fishkill, where he had worked for 33 years and was a top agent. He will be remembered by his coworkers and clients for his dedication and constant willingness to help. He was the foundation of the office and was always happy to help anyone in need, and he took great pride in helping countless people achieve their dreams of owning a home. He was a member of the National, New York State, and Dutchess County Associations of Realtors.
An avid reader, Lee considered the library a “home away from home”. He was proud of his Armenian ancestry and loved sharing information about his heritage with family and friends. He participated in many social media groups, all of which were very meaningful to him, and he enjoyed watching videos and reading forums in order to expand his knowledge of countless subjects and interests. Lee was also fascinated with nature and the outdoors; and had a fond affection for his Yorkshire Terriers.
On February 25, 1978, he married Joyce Mueller-Banner at St. Peter’s United Church of Christ in Washington, MO. Joyce survives at home in Fishkill along with their son, Andrew Banner.
In addition to Joyce and Andrew, other survivors include his mother, Thelma (Bates) Banner of Glendora, NJ; his brother, Sheldon Banner & his wife Linda of Pittsburgh, PA; his sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Toni Banner of Egg Harbor Township, NJ as well as Sandra Mueller, Cliff & Tish Mueller, and Ronald & Donna Mueller, all of Missouri; and many nieces, nephews, and other relatives & friends.
Lee was predeceased by his father, Harry Banner; his grandmother, Lillian Bates; his brother, Terry Banner; his sister, Barbara Andrescavage; and two brothers-in-law, Bill Andrescavage and Edward Mueller.
A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
Donations in Lee’s memory may be made to the Blodgett Memorial Library, 37 Broad Street, Fishkill, New York 12524.
Arrangements are under the direction of McHoul Funeral Home of Fishkill, Inc., 1089 Main Street, Fishkill. For online tributes, you can visit Lee’s Book of Memories at

6/29/20 Joyce, Andrew and Lee's extended family and friends; I am so very, very sorry to learn of Lee's passing. I pray that God will comfort each and everyone of you. Lee and I were neighbors in Barrington, NJ. I met Lee when I was in 6th or 7th grade. A life long friend, one of the nicest persons I have ever known. Although we didn't stay in touch as much (in retrospect) as I wish we had, I have never forgotten Lee and the good times we had together as kids. Lee visited me some years ago and we talked via phone on May 8th for about an hour. I still have the last three emails from Lee in my inbox, where they will remain for the foreseeable future. I learned of Lee's passing on 6/25/20. I apologize for taking so long to write this, but even now I've had to stop a number of times to clear the tears so I could see what I was typing. Joyce, if you can access Lee's email, I have a small mystery I would like to relay to you. Lee was and will always be remembered as one of the really nice guys. I offer my most sincere condolences to you, Joyce and Andrew and to your extended family and friends. Proud to call Lee a friend. Buzz

To Joyce and Andrew and all of Lee's loved ones , I am so sorry that he is gone.
Lee and I became acquainted in his senior year of high school (my junior year), when I asked his best friend to take me to the Prom. Lee was very encouraging of that relationship, and while it didn't last, my friendship with Lee did. We would walk part way home from school together and get into some lengthy conversations about anything and everything.I was fascinated with his vast knowledge and interests.
We lost touch for many years but reconnected on Facebook about 15 years ago. Knowing that I was a nurse, Lee regularly sent cartoons or clippings about how great nurses are and how hard we work. I will sadly miss hearing from him. He was one of the good guys! Rest in peace, dear Lee!
