He leaves behind his loving wife of 38 years, Sherry Farster.

Ben was retired from Carolina Cable Contractors. He was patriotic, conservative, an active supporter of The Wounded Warrior Project, member of the Moose Lodge and National Rifle Association. Ben was an avid sportsman who believed a day spent hunting or fishing was a day well lived. Ben loved to cook, feed and entertain friends. His passion was helping anyone in need and being a friend to everyone he met. While Ben did so much for so many, his world revolved around his wife and best friend, Sherry. They met as teenagers, fell in love, married and remained each other’s best half. Even though Ben will be missed by everyone who knew him, his legacy carries on through his influence on their lives.

I did not know Ben, but I consider Sherry to be a good friend and one of the best women I ever had the privilege to know. There are no words for times like this, but know you are in my heart and prayers. Love ya, girl.

Ben indeed was a great friend and neighbor to the Williams Dairy Family. With that smile of his he shared his vegetables and was helpful in any given situation, even when our cows got out.. He will be greatly missed.
