  15. Bob and I enjoyed his outgoing and kind nature. His smile and sense of humor was treasured not only by us but others as well.
    He will be remembered for his down to earth sermons to us “Guys” and one especially in which the congregation applauded after he was done. Somehow, we knew it took a great deal of strength to stand up and speak for ten minutes.
    God bless Mandy and his family for their strength and humor throughout Deacon Ben’s illness.

    May he rest in peace and be in the light of god. Heart felt sorry for his family.

  17. There are not words enough to say what Deacon Ben meant to me and Will. He was a man that had a huge smile, a huge heart, and a huge love, that shined in his eyes… enough love for everyone. I teased him so much and he alway gave it right back to me… I loved his sense of humor!
    He will be remembered always and forever deeply missed.
    My heartfelt sympathy to Mandy, his sons and his family.
    RIP Ben.

  18. Ben was such a kind man. Gentle, welcoming and patient with new comers. I enjoyed working with him as Sacristan at the cathedral. I always learned from his homilies. May he rest in peace.
