Daniel “DJ” Banik
SANTA FE - Daniel “DJ” Banik passed from this life, June 5, 2021, at his home.
While he was unable to overcome his addiction battle, he was a fierce and persistent fighter who lived every day of his life as fully as he could. He turned his life over to Christ not once but twice throughout his battle, but Satan’s way was to keep whispering. He was a son, brother, uncle and friend, who was hilarious at times and had a generous heart. We will never forget what two decades of addiction took from him: his friends, girlfriends, health, security, connection to his family, and every scrap of enjoyment of life.
He was preceded in death by his father, William “Bill” Banik and stepfather, Frank E. Mote.
Survivors include his mother, Lynette Mote; brothers, Jason Baker and wife, Amber, Justyn Mote; sister, Jessica Casady and husband, Ron and proud uncle to, Gage, Gunner, Nola and River.
Visitation with the family will be from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. Saturday, June 12, 2021 with funeral services beginning at 3:00 p.m., in the chapel of Hayes Funeral Home, 10412 Highway 6, (409) 925-3501. w
