Ben was a dad over anything, and a great one at that. His girls were his world. He was a welder and family Cornhole champion. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, talking smack, playing Pedro, basketball and being undefeated at Cornhole. Ben will be greatly missed by the ones who knew and loved him. His humor, sarcasm, and ability to ruin any serious situation with Facebook meme’s will forever bring back memories and laughter. May he forever haunt Tayler Dupre.
Paul Bearers serving in his honor, Kerry N., Kerry B., Joey, Bernie, Loring, Caleb, Howard, and Derek.
