Johnathan Angelo (Johnny) Banchero

Birth Date: 1946-08-13
Deceased Date: 1994-06-18

Johnny spent 47 years of his life cherishing his family and making a lasting impact on everyone around him. Growing up in the Beacon Hill area with his two brothers, Kenny and Kelly, he attended St. George's for his early education and graduated from Cleveland High School. During his time at Cleveland, Johnny excelled in sports, becoming a local sensation in both baseball and basketball. His exceptional skills, particularly as a pitcher, earned him widespread acclaim.

After graduating in 1964, Johnny married his high school sweetheart, Patricia Colello, in September 1966. The couple welcomed their first daughter, Gina Marie, in January 1968. Later that year, Johnny met Janet Lester, who would become his wife for 18 years. Their family grew with the birth of Jennifer Ann Banchero in 1973, who became the light of Johnny's life, followed by the arrival of their third daughter, Angela Delina Banchero, in 1974.

Johnny lived life to the fullest, balancing work at E&E Meats with long, hard-working hours on the family farm in Black Diamond. He remained active in sports, playing softball with his son-in-law, Eddie Flanagan, and pursuing his passion for horse racing and poker.

In 1991, his daughter Jennifer married Arnold Prado, who became Johnny’s right-hand man and much more than just a son-in-law. Johnny was also a loving grandfather to Tony, Joseph, Ashley, Nichole, Linsey, and Anthony, and cherished his five nieces and nephews: Sonny, Moe, Erica, Angelo, and Nichole. Additionally, he was a dedicated stepfather to Laurie Flanagan, and Mark and Lisa Manolides.

In his later years, Johnny devoted himself to caring for his father, Modesto, and maintaining the family properties. He tackled every challenge with dedication and stood by his family through thick and thin, embodying the spirit of a true Italian family man.

Johnny's memory lives on in the hearts of his loved ones. We love him dearly and pray that he rests in peace. May God bless you, Johnny!

Johnny was such a pleasure to be around. Great pitcher in baseball. I tried out for baseball team and could not come close to hitting one of his pitches. After practice Bob Jurcan asked why he didn’t slow down so Donne could hit it. Johnny said he was throwing slow. I didn’t make team. When we were freshmen we both played point guard. He so quick that he would knock down my passes. He taught me to be better passer. I wish he could be there in August.

He had a passion for a good meal, a great party, a winning night at the casino and the love of music, fast cars, fishing, all sports, baseball cards and comic books.
Doug left behind many people who will miss him dearly when he joined his father, Douglas E. Currie in heaven.

Deceased Date: 2016-10-03
Beloved Seattle artist and former teacher Frank S. Fujii passed away on October 3 at his Mercer Island home at the age of 86.

Fujii, a Nisei, was born on January 14, 1930 in Seattle’s Central District. He was the youngest of nine siblings. He attended Maryknoll School and Garfield High School, before enrolling at the University of Washington, where he earned a master of fine arts.

During World War II, he was incarcerated at Tule Lake Camp. He met his wife Michiko Inouye at the University of Washington. They married in June, 1952. She passed away in 1989.

Fujii was a popular former teacher at Franklin and Cleveland High Schools. He later worked in the graphic arts department at Seattle Central Community College for 17 years before retiring in 1989. He also served as affirmative action officer at the College.

Over the years, Fujii was a perennial donor to the Wing Luke Museum’s annual art auction. His art pieces always attracted spirited bidding and sold for a price far above their stated value. An exhibition of his works was featured at the Wing Luke Museum in 1992.

The Museum features a special gallery named in Fujii’s honor—the Frank Fujii Youth Space—on the second floor.

His works typically mixed traditional Japanese images such as brush strokes, kimono and fish with a playful graphic element, revealing Fujii’s strong interest in exploring graphic design.

Fujii was a role model and mentor to countless emerging local artists and designers. Michelle Kumata, Exhibit Director at the Wing Luke Museum, said she met Frank when she was a young artist. “I remember and appreciate him telling me that my art was special,” she said. “It really boosted my confidence and meant so much, especially coming from an established Japanese American artist. He was a cool dude, talented artist, and generous soul.”

Mayumi Tsutakawa, longtime arts administrator, said Fujii was her art teacher at Franklin High School. She recalled that Fujii, who also coached the school’s basketball team, played Bebop jazz music in the classroom and had many athletes in his class.

“I was not a very good art student,” Tsutakawa said. “When we studied contour drawing, where you draw your right hand, using your left hand, and vice versa, I was dismayed at the blobs left by the fountain pen we were supposed to use. Frank told me, ‘Those are good blobs, shows character.’ So he showed me that it was good to be different, and not to try for someone else’s idea of perfection.”

Over the years, Fujii donated his talents to many Asian American organizations, including the Seattle Chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League, which used a logo he designed to promote the effort to earn reparations for Japanese Americans incarcerated during World War II. The circular logo incorporated an image of barbed wire and a graphic representation of the first, second and third generations. The redress effort, spearheaded by Japanese American activists in Seattle, culminated in the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, signed into law by President Reagan.

“He was known for doing the banners at a lot of political and community non-profit events,” Ann Fujii-Lindwall, his daughter, recalled. “Some people even saved them as keepsakes. It was pretty amazing to stand there and watch him draw these straight lines and brushstrokes. His mother was also a good calligrapher. That’s probably where he got a lot of his artistic talent.”

Fujii is survived by his sister Kinko Nomura, Seattle; two daughters, Ann Fujii-Lindwall (husband Alan Lindwall), Seattle; Susan Yamamoto (husband Gary Yamamoto); and granddaughter Michiko Yamamoto.

Ann Fujii-Lindwall:

We all know all the ways my father; Frank Shobo Fujii contributed to the Seattle community, even up to the end, donating a piece of his art to the International Examiner CVA event last month. All the “titles” he earned---basketball coach, art teacher, commercial artist, community activist and leader. But of course, he was a husband and father first. As I scanned many photos recently, I saw so many with people at our house on Mercer Island, a home that he and my mother built 51 years ago. They opened themselves to so many people and I learned so much from all their community involvement and connections with some of the elite leaders at my young age.

But first growing up on Beacon Hill on Spencer Street, we also were social with the neighbor kids and my dad would of course, make his famous one of a kind signs for all of our “social events.” He painted our tricycles with our names, made forts inside the house out of cardboard, and we repaid him by helping him put his silkscreened Christmas cards on the drying racks. Those would special times. The long and fun trips to visit my auntie Tomi in Hawthorne, California – with an overnight stop at the Nishimi’s in Sacramento….so many summers, going to Manhattan Beach and Disneyland and the corner grocery store in Hawthorne. Both Suzie and I would sit in the front seat of our 1972 orange Volkswagen Bus (my mom rested in the back!) and give him cold towels and frozen grapes…one of his favorite treats. Speaking of treats, he would make us frozen popsicles quite often, applying his artistic talent by using food! I remember when I was fairly young (I was 9 years old when we moved to Mercer Island), when my dad left for work, I would run up to the window in my room, and he would stop his car and turn and wave to me. Of course there were times when he forgot, and I would be very sad that day. We would eat at Dags near Franklin High School a lot, and of course, we thought that was the best! My dad loved his food, going to Three Grand, Hong Kong, Four Seas, becoming regular customers! Neither Suzie nor I were very artistic, but our dad was always “supportive” and “appreciated” our efforts…that goes for not being very athletic, too! He got mad when some people said “don’t you wish you had sons?” He taught us about family, and we visited his mother in a nursing home for ten years. There were also frequent trips to the museum on the weekends, Seattle Center and Volunteer Park, and others. I know that had some impact on who I am today.

More recently, Suzie and I were fortunate to spend a lot of time with my dad, getting him to his many doctors’ appointments and taking care of him on Mercer Island. I will never regret that, even though we both spent hours, lots of ups and downs, but the bonding was strong and loving. It was a gift to our dad, for all the sacrifices both he and my mom made so we could have the important things in life. And recently at his last trip the hospital, there were about three instances where some staff thought I was my dad’s wife….at first I took a little offense, but then realized that my dad didn’t look 86, and his voice was always youthful. And that’s how we will all remember him.

Benjamin "Ben" Dennis Grenn, age 75, passed away at his residence in Anchorage, Alaska, on Dec. 7, 2021, after a 14-month battle with brain cancer. He was born on Feb. 22, 1946, in Aberdeen, Wash., to Joseph and Iona Grenn. The family moved to Seattle, Wash., in 1949, where Ben was blessed with two younger sisters, Nancy Nicholson and Gail Grenn. On Jan. 18, 1969, Ben married Selinda Tollefsen in Anchorage.

In addition to serving four years in the U.S. Air Force, Ben had myriad of fascinating jobs – he was an elementary school teacher, sports news anchor, newspaper writer, a radio personality and worked for the State of Alaska for many years as staff to a variety of colorful state legislators. But most importantly, he was a loving husband, father, uncle, brother and grandfather. Ben's first love was his family, but a close second was his love for sports of all kinds, particularly Seattle sports.

Ben is survived by his wife, Selinda Tollefsen Grenn; their children, Carrie Craig (Grenn) with husband Shane and son Craig Murphy, Skyler Grenn with wife Amanda and their children Aurora and Aria, Jason Grenn with wife Jana and their children Atticus, Vivienne and Truman; sisters, Nancy Nicholson and her sons Colby and Austin and their families and Gail Grenn.

In lieu of flowers, the family encourages donations to ANCORA Home Health and Hospice or the American Cancer Society - Alaska.

A memorial service will be held at Baxter Road Bible Church in Anchorage on Saturday, Jan. 29, 2022, at 1 p.m., with a reception afterward.

Most memorable moment was West Seattle double overtime game. Ben had a starter pistol so everyone could hear the end of the game. During the celebration after the victory he pointed starters pistol at two cops, I overheard the cops tell Coach Scott they will shoot him next time he does that.
