One of the most interesting people and the smartest man I’ve ever known, Ben was an engineer, inventor, builder, physicist, and all around great man of God, husband, father and friend. My kids and I spent countless hours in his shop (“carriage house” to his lovely wife Martha) troubleshooting, designing, fabricating and “mistaking” cars, lawnmowers, electronics, school projects and other machinery. Always willing to lend a hand, I frequently turned to Ben when my engineering mind could not solve a problem. Minutes easily turned into hours with him as he related experience, jokes and assistance. His easy manner, sharp mind and quick whit were always welcome additions to a hectic Saturday afternoon. I miss him greatly.

Thank you God for sharing Ben with all of us, and I’m sure you’ll continue to let him shine from above.
