Steven C. Banks, formerly of Monroe, NY, passed away Friday, May 13, 2011. He was 45.

Son of Veronica Costa Whitehead, he was born February 28, 1966 in Englewood, NJ. He was a member of Elks Lodge, Brevard, NC.

A family statement reads in part: “Steven was a unique and caring man with a passion for the outdoors—hiking, riding his motorcycle or just enjoying the day. He conquered many careers from his first job with Museum Village of Monroe to his charity work with children and his promotional work, where he once rode the world’s largest motorcycle. He lived life to the fullest. The world has lost a great man. As an organ donor, it was his gift to life.”

Survivors include his parents, Veronica and Robert Whitehead of Monroe and Henry Hudson of Cochecton, NY; children Darby Carroll Banks, Steven R. Banks, Holden Banks and Brittany D’Agastino; sisters Heather Hudson Sigman and husband Scott of Middletown, NY, Stefanie Hudson of Mahwah, NJ, Penny Marcario and Kelly Hudson, both of the state of Florida; nephew Branden Marshall of Middletown; and niece Lauren Brooks of New Windsor, NY; several aunts, uncles, cousins and countless friends.

Steven was predeceased by Collen Carroll, mother of their daughter Darby.

Visitation will be held from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, May 26 at Smith, Seaman & Quackenbush, Inc. Funeral Home, 117 Maple Avenue, Monroe, NY. A Celebration of Life will take place at 8:30 p.m. in the funeral home on Thursday evening.
