Rest in peace, Louis Banks

I met Louis Banks over 20 years ago. One of the springs that lifted my overhead door in the garage had broken. I had no clue who to call, and when talking with a friend, she had mentioned another friend’s brother. Louis came and in no time flat, had taken off the broken spring and put on another one.

Over the years, I’ve called on Louis for so many things. As I’ve written about before, I am an absolute enthusiast for demolition auctions. So when I found an auction with kitchen cabinets that I wanted, Louis was the first person I called. He had certificates in automotive repair, carpentry, and knew a little bit of everything. He was able to take all the cabinets down without destroying them for me to eventually reuse in my own kitchen.

When the belt on my dryer broke, Louis was the one I called to fix it. I did a successful repair on my washing machine, and even though my fix worked, I couldn’t get the outer shell of the machine back down properly on the base. So it was Louis to the rescue.
