One of those handful of people I can honestly say that I'm a better person for having known him. We'll miss his stories and his sense of humor. God's comfort to Cherry and the family.

Heartfelt sympathy to Cherry and extended family. Ben was a neighbor for many years and a close friend for even more. He was well read and had a vocabulary to be envied. He was full of wisdom and well respected. We loved you, Ben. RIP
