Banjo worked for the San Mateo Times for over 30 years. He was well known for his bowling and golfing skills, and loved to watch and wager at the horse races, especially Bay Meadows. He lived very happily at Lesley Towers for about 20 years. He moved this year to Saint Helena near his daughter after cancer surgery. A private family service is planned.
