He was our son, our brother, and our grandson. Ben was gifted with a big heart, and a personality larger than life. He was a natural-born leader with a strong will. Benny had a ‘green thumb’ and loved his garden. He was at peace in the outdoors, camping and fishing.

He loved the Green Bay Packers and his Siberian Husky, Jasmine.
