Ben was born in Flint, Michigan December 19, 1978 to Kay Nederveld and Bill Schoff and passed away September 6, 2019 at the age of 40.

Ben grew up in Williamston and was very active in the community’s baseball and football programs. He was introduced to Fine Arts’ classes at Williamston High School and encouraged to pursue a career in the Arts. Ben graduated from Michigan State University in 2001 and worked as a graphic designer throughout his career. Ben loved his music, the Detroit Tigers, and the Michigan State Spartans.

Ben is survived by his parents, sister Jenny (Jon) Kinsey, and nieces Anna and Lizzie. Ben was preceded in death by loving grandparents Jean and Harold Powell and Jo Schoff. He held a special place in his heart for his grandparents and missed them dearly.

The family wishes to thank former Williamston High School teachers Paul Nilsson and Jeff Lynch for mentoring and fostering Ben’s lifelong passions for the Arts and Athletics.
