June 23, 1962 ~ August 13, 2020 (age 58)


Santos “Joe” Banda Jr., 58, of Victoria passed away Thurs. Aug. 13, 2020. He was born June 23, 1962 in Yorktown to the late Santos Sr. and Minerva Moreno Banda. Joe’s grandchildren were the light of his life, whether it was taking them fishing, going to Dairy Queen for ice cream, cheering them on at their games, teaching them to mow grass, giving them weekly snack bags, or just stopping by to say hi, he was always around and happy to see them. He dedicated many hours to Yorktown EMS. He loved helping people and would give anybody whatever they needed. If you went to his house, you never left empty handed because he loved giving. He was a great man who will be truly missed.

He is survived by his children Pam Torres and Joe Anthony Banda both of Victoria. He is also survived by his grandchildren Michael Rodriguez, Jayden Rodriguez, Rashawn Steward, Kaison Rodriguez, brothers; John Banda, Roy Banda, sisters; Nora Rosalas and Mary (John) Moore.
