At last. Did Benjamin attend PS 165 on West 109th St. in Manhattan? I was his friend and classmate. He could hit "two sewers" in stickball.

I was shocked to hear about one of my deceased husband's oldest and dearest friend, Benjamin Demps. Harry Mason and "Sonny" (as they were both called)grew up in Harlem, N.Y. Harry passed on June 15, 2012 age 78. I had often thought if Benjamin knew about his old friend "crossinf over" and that's what prompt me to search for info. about Benjamin I will always have such fond memories of his warm hospitality during our stay with him at his home in Oklahoma,1981.

Jesus Christ gave his life for mankind to have everlasting life. All his promises are true.

Carolyn,
I only learned of Ben's passing today and immediately looked for some way to reach out to you to let you know that I have prayed for you and your family. I only worked with Ben from a distance when he was Director. He was talented and insightful. Please know of my prayers for you and all of his family.

Ben Demps was an unusual management and public servant talent that as a new Governor I was fortunate to discover. We recruited him from his Euorpeon post to return to Oklahoma to run Oklahoma's largest and most complicated agency frought with challenges. He performed this job with good humor and a distinguished aire that had all of us act more professionally when he was around. Pat and his daughters were lovely and brilliant and also became part of our team. What a marvelously varied life that seemed to constantly seek challenge. Thank you Ben for all you did for those in need in Oklahoma. May you rest in peace.

I remember "Mr. Demps" from my earliest days at ZNY. Will always remember and be grateful for his encouragement. His example guided me throughout my career.

Carolyn, my heart breaks for you. I see him so relaxed and welcoming to Ed and I the day we were at your house in Edmond before you "sailed away". We have enjoyed the cards, e-mails and pictures of you and "Mr. Demps" since you have been in Florida. It was a pleasure to work with him in DHS and more of a pleasure to have known him through my friendship with you. If there is anything Ed and I can do please let me know. Stay in contact. I love you.

I first met Ben Demps at the FAA Academy in the mid 70s. Always a smile. Always a friendly word of encouragement. R. I. P.

I knew Benny when we both were supervisors at the New York Air Route Traffic Control Center back in the sixties. He was smart, funny, and a please to work with. What a privilege just to have known him way back in the day. I was truly saddened to hear of his passing, but he leaves great memories and a not to be forgotten legacy.
