Richard P. Banse, Jr., 56, formerly of Sanatoga

Richard P. Banse, Jr., 56, formerly of Sanatoga, PA, passed away at his home in Hagerstown, MD, in the early morning of February, 26th. Richard was married to Mary Masterilli, his one great love, in 1997, on a sunset beach in beautiful Trinidad, the first of many adventures they would share. Mary was at his side at the time his vibrant soul was lost to the world, and those who loved him can take solace that his passing was quick and he did not suffer.

Born on May 29, 1958, in Chester County, PA, Richard was raised in E. Norriton and Graduated from Anderson University in Indiana. He was currently a Systems Analyst in the Global Technology Industry, most recently working for Lockheed Martin for over 10 years. Richard had remarkably diverse talents in theater and the arts, and was an avid fan of a wide range of music. He worked as a DJ in college, and had recently picked it up again with renewed passion for a musical genre called electro-swing. He was one heck of a dancer, and gave that gift to his wife, who had never danced before and learned a whole new way of sharing the joy of her love for him. His other interests included travel, hiking, sailing, and outdoor adventures of every kind. He was an avid reader. He could talk for hours on a great many subjects. A true Renaissance man.

He met his future wife, Mary, in 1996, on the Internet. He answered an ad titled, “Adventurers Wanted,” which became the central theme of their lives together. Richard and Mary were adventurous souls who lived life to the fullest. From climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa, to rappelling the glaciers of Iceland, to zip-lining through the jungle canopy in Costa Rica, Richard approached life with a vigor and passion that was ageless. Richard was especially dedicated to supporting his wife’s artistic endeavors, and was so very proud of her every accomplishment.

No story of Richard would be complete without mention of Halloween. Community Theater was a huge part of his life, especially the Haunted Theater, where he was the sometimes scary, sometimes funny, Mr. Scuttles. He also acted in and directed numerous plays, but his greatest joy was designing special effects and lighting, for which he won several awards. He was an avid builder and tinkerer, and with his creative mind and brilliant insights, he created many memorable stage sets, gizmos and gadgets. It was his theater experiences that led Mary down the path of an artist, using parts from his many stage props and flea market finds in her mixed media pieces. He was her muse, her inspiration, her greatest supporter.

While his ride through life was cut unexpectedly short, it was a life truly lived, with the woman he cherished, and they were both made so much better for their too short 18 years together. Richard’s joy was Mary’s happiness, and her legacy will be in paying forward all the love and joy and kindness he has given her.

In addition to his Beloved Mary, he is survived by his parents, Richard P. Banse, Sr. and Shirley Banse (nee Carpenter), sister Susan and her husband Brian Hohman, and their children, Zachary and Trevor, sister Sara and her husband Howard Poole, and their children Madison and Skyler. In addition, countless friends, coworkers and colleagues – pretty much everyone who ever met him – were touched by his kind and generous soul, his honesty and integrity, his passion for life, his love and admiration for Mary, his sense of humor, and his brilliant and creative mind.

Visitation will be at the Catagnus Funeral Home in Royersford, Saturday, March 14th, 2pm to 3 pm, followed by a Memorial Service, 3pm to 4pm, where everyone is invited to speak and share their memories of Richard. There will be no internment. Reception will follow at (location will be announced at the service) from 5pm to 7pm.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in honor of Richard P. Banse, Jr., to Kitty Kottage Adoption Center, 317 W. Johnson Hwy, E. Norriton, PA 19401.
