RIP Don Banks, a great writer gone too soon.
Yet somehow the Kellermans and Parkers just continue on

Don, thank you for the countless wonderful columns and hours of entertainment you provided. May the good Lord rest you and keep you, and bring comfort to your loved ones.

Why can't other writers fill columns purely with football news without going off on pet hates, BS personality stuff, coffee, ridiculous hyperbole, etc.? Then one of the few guys who does dies at a way-too-early age. Just not right. Enjoyed his work and always looked for his column. RIP.

It’s becoming more and more of a rare breed sadly. I have a lot of respect for a guy like Banks who definitely seemed to do it the right way.

Dead in his sleep at 56 with no known health issues (at least that the public was aware of).

Can only think heart issue, stroke, or something drug related. Hate to think suicide but it has to be on the radar as well, albeit further down the list (by all accounts, Banks was happy and excited about his new job).

Wow. Really jarring, and quite sad.
