I worked with him for many years at Meijer. We become very good friends , when things were going on in our life or troubles at work we always knew we could call each other. He as helped me over and over again. My mom and dad loved him always asked about him, my kids loved him. Everyone loved Volpe! He was a dear friend, who always made me laugh and I always knew I could count on him. You will be dearly missed my friend.

Mike & Nan,
We have been blessed more than I can write to be able to share the memories of Ben with you, going through pictures and hearing the stories of the 'Ben" we know and the new stories of the 'Mike" that his friends knew. He will always be in our hearts.
Genesis 1:1 starts, "In the beginning God created...".
God created parents like you to nurture and raise Ben into the handsome, kind and adventurous son he turned out to be. And he created Ben to give you joy and strength to go through the valleys. Be proud. Goodbyes are not forever, we will see Ben again.
Love you both,
Dan & Evelyn Coxon

Nancy - Truly sorry to hear of the loss of your son. My heart breaks for you and your family. That's not the way it should go - the loss of a son before the parent. If you ever need a friend to talk with & listen - please contact me. Lean on friends and family during this difficult time.
Sincerely,
Mandi Kishman
