I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one. I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I'd like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun Of happy memories that I leave when life is done.

Picasso famously said, It takes a very long time to become young. Well, my memories of Ben Gooas an individual, an artist, a husband and fatherare that he never had to become young for he was always young. Whimsical, authentically himself, a perpetual twinkle in his eyes, enthusiastic and optimistic about everything that he did. He was a source of inspiration to his students, colleagues, friends...and most importantly his two sons. RIP, Ben, after a long life well-lived.

We are very sorry to learn of Ben's passing. He was a great man with a wonderful sense of humor. My husband and I met each other in his Basic Design Class at ASU fifty-six years ago. He came to our wedding and gave us two beautiful pieces of his work. He will live on in all of our hearts and memories as long as we live. --Miron and Carol Webster

So sorry to hear of Ben's passing. I was fortunate enough to meet and know him during my time at Arizona State University. He was a welcoming and supportive faculty member who was also a friend.

So sorry for the family's loss. Take time to celebrate a life well lived. The loss of a loved one is truly difficult no matter how long we have them wish us. May the wonderful memories of your husband, father and grandfather fill your hearts with love and bring you peace. Continue to rely on God during this difficult time and know that he hears your prayers. (Isaiah 59:1)
