Ben, as he was affectionately known, steadily advanced from humble beginnings to become widely respected in his chosen profession and community at large. His aspirations to impact those within his sphere of influence for the better helped guide him from one success to another, and to build an organizational platform that serves as a vehicle to help others realize their own professional and personal potential.
The reflections many of us have of Ben’s calm, unruffled, resolute, kind, and caring spirit is a testimony to the subtle, yet profound and indelible impression he made on all who knew him. The relationships he established, nourished, and treasured will continue to be a significant part of his legacy. Rest well on your journey, my friend, you will be missed!
