I really loved Mickey. He was my brother-in-law (Chris), for a relatively short time, but I have strong memories of those years. Being a Hassan holds a special place in my heart. I saw a picture of him and Vickie with Alex and Elizabeth. I have that picture. That was at my wedding to Chris. That was a warm and beautiful day.

A few years ago, we ran into each other at a favorite Mexican restaurant in Plano. We stared at each other, both confused by who we each were. Then we both got it at the same time and a big hug ensued. He was funny, sharp, kind, and always supportive of me. It’s said that your in-laws are always your in-laws. I’m proud to have had Mickey as my brother-in-law.

Rest easy and Godspeed. You’ll be with your parents and Alex. Peace and love and healing to Mickey’s family. Mickey had a big presence and I’m sure there’s a huge void now. I’m so terribly sorry.

Much love,
Laura

Back in the late 60's is when I first met Ben. We worked together at Collins Radio, bldg 412 in Shipping and Receiving, in Richardson, Texas. We became really good friends as well as coworkers. Several years later I moved away and didn't see Ben for many years until the mid 80's, around 86. We began seeing each other again. He was divorced and so was I. On June 5 1987, we were married and stayed married for nearly 15 years. Ben had his good side and he had a bad side, but I only wish to talk about his good side. Anytime I mentioned something I liked or desired to do, he would get it or make it happen. For example, I loved bowling, so we joined the Collins mixed bowling league, and we bowled for years together. One day I told him how much I would love to have a Chinese Pug, I always wanted one. Next thing I knew he brought home a little Pug puppy for me and I named him Jack. I found a house at 2400 Briarwood that I
fell in love with and wanted us to buy it and he made it happen. Those are just a couple of things he would go out of his way to do for me. He cared a lot for my children and grand children as though they were his own. He was their PaPa and was very proud to be called PaPa.
It made him feel so good and special when they would come to visit. Ben had many friends and we did so much together. He dearly loved his friends and would do anything for them.
Even though we divorced in the 2000s, I will always have a special place in my heart for him. I will always remember the fun and good times we had together with his family, my family, and all the friends we made along the way. I forgive him for all the bad times and choose not to remember them from this day forward and pray that he is at rest in the arms of The Lord. I pray that his family and friends will also find comfort and peace in the hands of The Lord. I will forever love you,Ben, and may you rest in peace.

Even though Ben did not graduate from Plano he was invited to attend a 50 year class reunion. What fun he had seeing everyone. He knew a lot of people from working at the DQ. He knew what song you were going to play on the juke box because he had heard it plenty of times. I already miss him posting his favorite songs on facebook. I saw him at a car show back in October and we talked a long time about Plano and his cars and his family. He was a fun guy and truly had a lot of friends.

Ben and I have been working together for years, but got to know him during a Corporate Challenge event when we bowled together at Allen Bowl and won first place. He was league secretary on Thursday nights and asked me if I was interested in joining the league after the Corporate event. I have bowled with him for the last 3 years and he was always open to talk and very helpful with bowling suggestions. He was a good friend and will be missed. Wonderful and thoughtful man. My condolences go out to the friends and family of Ben.

I, too, worked with Ben at Collins and Rockwell - in fact shared an office with him at one point.
He was a true professional and a really nice guy all at the same time. We lost contact after I
retired in 1991 and I am sorry for that. Rest in Peace, Ben.

I met Ben about 20 years ago, I was working for Pop a lock & was called to Poor Richards in Plano to open a car, When I arrived Ben was standing there by his 67 Camero that I opened for him, While waiting for payment to clear we started talking & I ask him what he did & he told me he was a CPA so I ask him if he did Taxes & he gave me his card & I gave him a compact slim Jim! He was my CPA & was always very helpful with any questions ! I am shocked by this sudden loss ! Was getting ready to call him to do my Taxes & catchup on our lives!!! Rest in Peace my friend!!!!!

Ben was a beautiful soul and wonderful friend. I will miss our trips to the gym, lunches, and many "counseling" sessions. He and I had a common connection because of our boys. Our bond was special and I will be forever grateful for his friendship.

Rest Easy my Friend!

Ben and I go back to the fifth grade at St. Paul the Apostle in Richardson. I still fondly remember either biking or running from my home in west Plano to his home off of 14th in east Plano to trade stamps or just hang out. I enjoyed the experience we had at Jesuit, especially being the first from Plano to attend there. I also thoroughly enjoyed teaching his son at Williams and was as shocked as him to hear of his untimely death. I will miss Ben very much. I wish the best for his family. God speed Ben.

Ben, Dad, Papa,

Words simply cannot express how thankful I am to have had you in my life for over 30 years. You were the Dad, Papa and Friend that you didn’t have to be. You brought so much joy to our lives through the years, we will never forget you. We love you and will miss you so much. You were always just a phone call away for anything we ever needed. My heart is hurting. Love Amy
