I worked at New York Center when Benjamin was there.I as a young controller was motivated by his sense of professionalism and accomplishment. He inspired me seek a higher level and to reach back and help others

Mr. Benjamin Demps was an inspiration to many African Americans in anbd outside of the Federal Aviation Administration. He asked a lot of his employees, expected excellence and was an outstanding example to all he came in contact with. Many of us wanted to be just like him. May God welcome him into his kingdom.

I was really saddened to hear of Benny's passing. Benny and I shared a lot of things. He was born in Harlem and I was born in East Harlem a few short blocks away from his birthplace. Both in NY Center. Both at the FAA Academy where I was a Instructional Unit Manager. Benny had a tremendous impact on my career. He was very influential in my selection as the Burlington Tower and Approach Control Facility Assistant Manager. I was also assigned by Benny to the select committee to develop the new Air Traffic Control Training program in 1975-76, during a very tumultuous time. If not for Benny's leadership the project would have failed.

I have always had great respect for Benny and his friendship, a true leader and gentleman in the new FAA. We have lost one of the Best of The Best. My sincere condolences to Carolyn and family. May he rest in a well deserved peace with our Lord. God.'s Speed Benny.

Mr. Benjamin Demps was an inspiration to many African-Americans that broke into the FAA in the early 1970's. I was one of them. My faith tells me that God has him cradled in his loving arms.
