Benjamin Noah Lenagh

July 2, 1999 – October 2, 2022

Preceded in death by grandparents William J. Lenagh and Richard and Wanda “Nana” Pate.

Survived by parents Ed and Mary Ann Lenagh; brothers Jason (Jill), Matthew, Zachary, and Jacob; niece Verona; nephew Desmond; Grandma Helen Lenagh; many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Benjamin Noah Lenagh, a son, a brother, and a friend. Ben exemplified so many amazing traits. Never without a smile on his face, he would always be the one to say “I love you” at the end of any conversation. He was a caring and kind human being that achieved great things in his short time here. He was in the process of finishing his master’s degree  after discovering his calling in education. In his free time, you’d often hear Ben hooting and hollering over video games or find him pushing around heavy weights at the JCC. He was a devout New Orleans Saints and Houston rockets fan and could quote almost any player’s stats. Ben was brilliant, he had 33 college credits by the time high school was over. Ben loved watching anime with his brother Jake and would always be ready for the annual thanksgiving basketball game in the driveway. He was proclaimed to have the best-looking basketball shot of the all the Lenagh boys. Ben was the type of person who would do anything for anyone with an incredible personality with loving heart. We take great comfort knowing that Ben is with Nana up in Heaven now and will miss him dearly. Until we meet again Benjamin Noah.

    I had the pleasure of working with Ben over the summer in a UNO class. His energy and enthusiasm and caring presence was felt by everyone. My thoughts and love go to all who knew him.

    Ed, Mary Ann, and Jake, sending our deepest condolences to you and your family for the tragic loss of Ben. We have such fun memories of watching him play sports throughout his high school years. Carter feels very fortunate to have had both Ben and Jake as his teammates. May the Lord comfort you and keep the special memories of Ben vivid in our hearts always. God Bless

    I didn’t know your son but my daughter Rachel was in the same class as your older son @ MN. I’m so very very sorry for your loss! My deepest sympathies!

    Lenagh family and friends, you are all in my thoughts during this impossibly difficult time. Such a tremendous loss. At a time when people are running from the teaching profession, Ben stepped up and loved being a part of it all. His example will live on to inspire and encourage others. Beautiful man inside and out.
    Love, Lauri Cook
