I'm saddened by your family's loss. Ben was my hero from the Lakers when I was a little kid in 1954 & 1955. One of my prized possessions is his autograph which is still in my possession. One of my greatest was when he was walking off the court he put his arm around my shoulder after a rough game. He had class and he had always been in my thoughts when I think Lakers. Please accept my sympathy and he no doubt well have eternal life. Warm condolences to his entire family.

John & Tom,
I am very sorry to hear that your Dad, Vern, has passed away. I had the priviledge of meeting him at numerous occasions when I accompanied my Dad, Tommy Thomsen from Askov Minnesota. We attended a few basketball functions honoring your Dad and I remember how proud my Dad was to be a part of Vern's past. They played basketball together in Askov and many memories were shared by both. Vern was a wonderful man and will be missed by many. My sympathies go out to you and your family.
