John Lewis Whisenand, 61, of Whitefish, formerly of Eagan, Minnesota, passed away at home on Sept. 8, 2015, surrounded by his loving family after a two-year battle with cancer.

John is survived by his parents, Fred and Coral; his loving wife of 41 years, Tracey; four sons and three daughters-in-law, Shawn and Bridgette, Paul and Sonja, Thomas, and David and Katie; five grandchildren; and his loving brother and sisters, Fritz, Barbara and Nancy.

John was born in Grand Forks, North Dakota, in 1954 and graduated from Williston High School in 1972. After graduating from the University of North Dakota in 1977, John flew for OK Aviation and Real West Airlines in Bismarck. In 1981, John was hired by Northwest Airlines where he spent 25 years flying and instructing on the B727, B757, A320 and A330 aircraft. After retiring in 2007, John continued his instructing career with CAE Inc.

John and Tracey moved to Whitefish in 2008 where they loved to golf, ski, raft and hike in the surrounding mountains.

John was most proud of his four sons, who through hard work earned college degrees and are very successful in their careers. Shawn is an airline pilot, Paul a manager at an energy company, Thomas owns a brewery, and David is an attorney. He also adored his grandchildren, Alyssa, Macy, Beck, Nolan and Arthur.

John would like to thank those who cared for him during his illness, especially Drs. Harris, Anderes and Carlburg, physician's assistant Carrie Thompson and nurse Lois.

John would also like to thank Bible Study Fellowship, his spiritual mentor Rick Drenk of Minneapolis, and Pastors John and Ralph of Christ Lutheran Church whose love and prayers blessed him over the last two years. John's faith in Christ was strong, and he wants everyone to know he is alive and well in heaven.

Finally, he would like to thank God for the many incredible sunrises, sunsets, and awe-inspiring displays of stars he was so blessed to see during night flights over the Atlantic. As the Bible says in the Psalms, "The heavens declare the glory of God."

A service for John will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 12, at Christ Lutheran Church in Whitefish.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Glacier National Park Conservancy.

Austin Funeral Home is caring for John's family.

John was born October 6, 1942 and raised in Moon Township, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Moon Township High School and Washington and Jefferson College in Washington, PA. He entered the military in 1966 after flight training, and served in Vietnam as a Pilot of the OV-1 Mohawk Intelligence Aircraft and Infantry Officer Leader, where he received the Bronze Star, Air Medal with 21 Oak Leaf Clusters, and Vietnam Distinguished Service Cross. John joined Northwest Airlines as a Pilot in 1971, and for the next 30 years worked for the airlines and FAA in various capacities. While in the FAA he became the Director of Flight Procedure, Training and Standards, and Service and Deputy Associate Administrator for Aviation Standards. At Northwest Airlines he was the Senior Vice President of Operations and Chief Safety Officer, all while continuing his passion for flying whenever possible. John retired in 2001 in Sanibel Island, FL. and Arlington, VA.

John and Marie most recently resided in Sun City, SC and frequently traveled to Northern Virginia to visit their children and grandchildren. "ACE", as he is known to our family, was a loving, generous, devoted husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother in law, and friend.

Carlton Ray Bankston, 75, of Holden Louisiana, passed away at his home on August 31, 2015 after a long and courageous battle against cancer. Mr. Bankston was born on November 20, 1939, in Holden, Louisiana. He was a member of Magnolia Baptist Church. He graduated from Holden High School where he achieved all-state honors in basketball, a sport which he enthusiastically taught his two sons. After high school he joined the U.S. Marine Corp. He went through basic training in San Diego and served tours of duty in Hawaii and the Mediterranean. Mr. Bankston stated the Marines were easy after enduring the challenges of farming in south Louisiana and playing basketball for Alton Leggette. Following his service in the Marines, he began a 39 year career in the airline industry working for National, Pan American, and Delta Airlines. During his career with the airlines he resided in Miami, New York, and Atlanta, but always kept his "home" in Holden. Working for the airlines allowed Mr. Bankston to easily pursue one of his joys of life which was traveling. Always planning a trip, he visited all 50 states, along with Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. Upon retirement from Delta Airlines where he served as a flight dispatcher, Mr. Bankston returned to Holden to pursue his other joys: gardening and visiting with family and friends. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Dorothy Wagner Bankston; sons, Steven Ray Bankston (Kymberly) of Birmingham, Alabama, and Stuart Lyle Bankston (Rebecca) of Holden; grandchildren, Barnes Ray Bankston, Carter Bankston, Christopher Bankston, Myia Bozeman (Derrick), Tyler Bankston, McKenzie Bankston, Gauge Bennett, and Kati-Grace Bankston; sisters, Annette Wagner Harvey and Fayrene Mitchell; sister-in-laws, Shirley Bankston and Mildred Bankston; along with several nieces and nephews.
