To the family of Ben, I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Ben for many years and he was one of the most upbeat, hard working and kind man. He was a great example of how you should conduct yourself. He believed in doing things the right way. No short cuts. He was always put together, everyday sporting a hard crease in his freshly pressed pants. The man was sharp. We had lots of laughs and special moments because he was special. May he Rest In Peace.

Ben and I were buddies at work, not just co-workers. We always had stories to tell each other about our lives and families; we cracked each other up! I will miss him very much! Rest now my brother.
