I was Bens Aunt. What a personality and what chrisma! He was so charming and sweet! I watched him grow up with my two sons, Alex and Mitchell Stephens. I always admired how he could talk with adults and peers, with such ease. His smile was impish and pure! I will miss you Ben! Sorry things couldnt be different, Ilove you! Your Aunt Patty, always and forever!

Dear Ben this is heart breaking, I will always remember the long talks we had and how you always showed up with your pant leg rolled up LOL. Your love for music was fantastic and your smile was always great to see. I met Ben through my daughter when they were teenagers, he was a great friend to her and we will miss you dearly. Sending prayers to your family and your children of course. We would love to have a visual for Ben with his mom's permission of course please reach out if this is possible thank you.

I've known Ben almost all my life it seems... He was one of those dear friends you categorize in your heart as FAMILY.
HE TAUGHT ME SO MUCH but mostly he taught me how to keep my head up & that being my true self was beauty not make-up or jewlery

Me and Ben have been friends since 8th grade. We have had years of memories! I never knew the last time I saw him would be the last.....he sent me a video of him dancing in the bathroom and making faces at the camera 😂 he was always so funny and such a good soul. I love him and will always miss him🙏 I'll never forget him singing and playing guitar he had such a good voice❤️ rest in peace my friend!!!

I haven't seen or spoken to you since high school, but I am so, so sad to hear this. You were always one of the most positive and uplifting people during our days there and your smile is still one of the memories I have of you.

I'm so sorry you couldn't find your lighthouse, rest in peace.
