So deeply sorry for your loss. Ben is one of the most generous and kind hearted people that I have every met. I did not consider him a friend I considered him a brother. I hope that you can find solace in the fact that Ben was a great person and he touched so many people’s lives in a positive way.

I am deeply sorry for you loss. Our families go way back to the time when Rick and Carl coached Ben and Brad in T-Ball. I have great memories of the kids growing up, each family having 4 children similar ages. Camping together, going to Lexington for the Bluegrass Games and watching Soccer games over the years.
My heart goes out to all of you. Deb

I will truly miss Benjamin , he was such a caring person.He always asked how things were going, when ever he came to knuks. I have been back to Kentucky to visit several times and when I would see him at knuks, he was always glad to see me and asked about my new truck driver career and live in general.
