The Darrell Banks Story
Section 36, Plot 539

As we slipped away from the graveside we all agreed that something should be done to lay a plaque at the grave of this legend.

We propose to lay the plaque in the month of July 2004 in the  behalf of SoulfulDetroit forumers from around the world.

Anyone wishing to donate to the cost of the project can do so quickly by credit card via PayPal.

UPDATE: This project was fully funded, thanks to donations from fans around the world, and this Memorial Bench now graces Darrell Bank's formerly unmarked grave

Darrell Banks Memorial Project
[NOTE ADDED July 2004: Funds have successfully been raised for a memorial bench marker, by internet solicitation, from fans around the world! A memorial bench now adorns his formerly unmarked grave. Please click here for details.]

Thanks to all who donated to the
Darrell Banks Memorial
the project is now fully funded and on Memorial Day 2004 a marker bench was placed on his grave. A dedication will be held on July 17, 2004.
