Dr. Clyde George Banner II, 63 years young, passed away Saturday, October 15, 2016, after a heroic battle with cancer. Clyde was born in Denver and raised in his beloved New Orleans; a city as flavorful and full of life as he. Dr. Banner attended Tulane University, where he played college baseball, and not to be outdone, football too. He graduated in 1977, and went on to complete his Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine, and establish his career in Jupiter, Florida, practicing Emergency Medicine. For more than 21 years he tirelessly and loyally devoted himself to his passion for helping people and saving lives as an ER doctor at Jupiter Medical Center. JMC was his home away from home, and the people he worked with were much more than colleagues – they were friends and extended family.

Though Jupiter became his home, New Orleans was a part of his essence in every way – you could taste it in his cooking, hear it in his selection of music, and feel it in his zest for life. As a family man and avid sports fan, he fused these together in the Crescent City whenever possible. He traveled back to NOLA pretty regularly, with his forever fiancé, Linda by his side. He loved the Saints and Tulane Athletics, which he supported every year. They made the most of those trips, visiting his mom, sister and oldest daughter, Genevieve. His youngest daughter, Krystal who lived in Florida, would accompany them often, as would close friends who also shared a love of New Orleans. Together they would attend Tulane games, Saints games, Jazz Fest, and Mardi Gras parades and balls with the Krewe of Endymion, to which Clyde was a member.

Clyde was an extremely caring and generous soul who loved his family and close friends deeply. He lit up a room with his warm and gentle smile, and made everyone whose lives he touched, feel accepted and loved. He is survived by Linda Giannetti, his long time fiancé and life partner of 18 years; daughters, Genevieve and Krystal Banner; step sons, Dennis and Dominic Giannetti; and daughter-in-law, Lauren Giannetti. He is also survived by his sister and brother-in-law, Diane and Joe LeMoine; nieces, Angelle Lawson (and family), Michelle Sortino (and family); and grandchildren, Antonia, Dylan, Sofia and Giuliana Giannetti.

A Visitation will be held on Thursday, October 20th from 5pm to 9pm at Taylor and Modeen Funeral Home, 250 Center St., Jupiter, FL 33458. Family will be speaking from 6pm to 7pm. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you send donations "in memory of Dr. Clyde Banner" to Tulane Athletics. Office of Development, PO Box 61075, New Orleans, LA 70161-9986.
