Benjamin Robert Fecke

December 31, 2009September 24, 2013

FECKE, Benjamin Robert, age 3, son of Robert M. and Jennifer L. (Comer) Fecke was born Thursday, December 31, 2009, and returned home with the angels on Tuesday September 24, 2013. Those that knew Ben know what a fighter he was throughout his short life. Through so many challenges, he surprised everyone with his strength. At the end of his life here with us, it was clear that he was ready to return home to heaven and live in a pain free, joyful eternity. His time with us was a gift, and he will be missed everyday by his parents, his little sister Grace, and a new little sibling that will be joining the family soon. He is also survived by Grandma Joyce Comer of Englewood, and Grandma Kathy and Grandpa Ted Fecke of Huber Heights. He also had multiple aunts, uncles, and cousins that encouraged and supported Ben during his brief life. A Mass of Christian Burial led by Fr. Jim Manning will be held Monday September 30th at 11am at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 115 S. Main Street, Franklin, OH 45005 with burial to follow at Calvary Cemetery, 1625 Calvary Drive, Dayton, OH, 45409. In lieu of flowers, Ben’s family requests friends consider donations in Ben’s name to The Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, PO Box 5202, Cincinnati, OH 45201-5202 or the Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome (SADS) Foundation, 508 E. South Temple Suite 202, Salt Lake City, UT 84102. A special thank you to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and to Dr. Rick Czosek and Dr. Barbara Hallinan for helping us keep Ben here as long as we could, although it wasn’t nearly long enough for his family. TOBIAS FUNERAL HOME-FAR HILLS CHAPEL in care of arrangements. Online condolences may be sent to

Ted and Kathy,
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your grandson. I will keep your family in my prayers. I know what you are going through because I lost a three year old granddaughter about a year ago and there are no words that will console you. Hold tight to the memories, they will be with you forever and Ben will always be in your hearts.

Sorry to read about your loss. Cherish the good memories you have of your sons short life on this earth. I didn't know Ben, but I did work with his grandpa, and if he was anything like Ted, he was a great child. May God comfort you in this time of loss. Trust God to get you through this time.
