Personal note from Barbara & Julia

Thank you to everyone for your support during this difficult time. We would love for you to post your favorite photos and/or stories about Ben on the "Memories" tab of this memorial website. Please don't be shy about answering some of the questions on the "Favorites" tab as well - it will bring a smile to our faces :)

We have established a Memorial Fund in Ben's honor to collect and distribute funds to organizations that align with Ben's values. Due to the sudden nature of Ben's passing, we have not yet selected an organization(s). We will keep this website updated as we get in touch with people whose lives were positively impacted by Ben, and gather ideas on the best recipients of these funds.
