    I am so sorry of you loss. Ben was the absolute kindness person (and coach) I ever had throughout my years in sports.

    His impact upon others is monumental. I am sending love, hugs, and condolences to you all. Eddie aka Ahmad Tezwad 🙂

    Condolences to you Mariana, and to the rest of Ben’s family. Ben and I worked on a lot of projects together at Mutual of Omaha back in the 80’s/90’s. He was a hard worker, organized, knowledgeable, and reliable. For one reason or another, we had a chance to grab a beer together now and then, and he was interesting and fun. I know you will miss him, so I will be praying for you.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. My daughter Heather found out from Dave and passed the news to me. As I told Ben last December “if I could be half the man You are then I would consider my life a success. In my mind, Ben will always be a “gentle” giant and will be missed by all whose lives he touched.
