  1. So sorry to hear about Ben. Known you all since I was very young and nobody should have to go through the things that have transpired the past few years, love you all, Ben is at peace now.

  2. Met Ben at work and riding together we got along great sad to hear this but men need more resources for issues they face rest in peace brother

  3. I will never be able to thank you enough for how much you meant to me brother. I love you with all my heart and will never be able to express the gratitude of you being in my life for almost 30 years. I was blessed to be lucky enough to cross paths with you and develop a legendary friendship that I will never find again in this lifetime. My heart is truly broken that I will never talk to you again and I hope we see each other again someday after this life ends. I miss you brother. I forever appreciate you!

  4. My brother, through thick and thin, we shared so many moments in this life together. You will forever be held dearly in my heart. Glad to have called you a friend for so many years. I truly consider your family as my own.

    I’ll see you on the other side.

  5. I am so sorry for your loss. Ben was a good-hearted man who loved his family. One of my favorite memories was when our families vacationed in Florida together and he used his new mental detector. He spent a good amount of time and only located a penny. We always had a good time when our families got together. You will be missed by so many.

  6. Worked a few jobs with Ben. He was always a lot of fun. We would get along great and somehow always laughed at each other’s stupid jokes. You’ll be missed bro. 396 for life

  7. Ben and I became members of the family about the same time. He was one of a kind. I think my favorite story was when Dan and Juan took Ben to one of our wine dinners at Coopers Hawk for his Birthday. He walked in with a crown on from Burger King like he opened the place. Ordering rounds of shots for everyone. He had the whole place laughing, he made everyone there a friend that night. I will miss his humor and personality so much! Love you so much!!!

  8. Dear Patty, I am so sorry to read of your Son’s passing. My deepest sympathy for you and your family. Continued prayers for all of you. May God hold you in His Loving arms.

  9. Steve, I am so sorry to hear about this tremendous loss of your son, Ben. You and your family will be in my prayers, especially during this painful time. Jan Landers
