I had known Ben since has was about six. Even as a boy he transcended the sometimes cruel tribalism of childhood in favor of good cheer, wry wit, and plain decency. While I didn't see him much when we were adults, from our few encounters and what I came to know of him, he carried these fine qualities into his life as a man. The last time I saw Ben was a chance meeting at the grocery store in Stonington on Christmas Eve in 2015; before then, it had been years. He was with his daughter and son. Their warmth, gregariousness, and humor reflected his own, so I knew he had done well. That twenty minutes planted itself, and over the ensuing couple of years we exchanged emails and vowed to get together. I looked forward to seeing more of him, and lament that now it can't happen. That's my loss, and I know his passing must be a terrible blow to his loved ones. Ben struck me as an increasingly rare exemplar of unpretentious genuineness and rectitude. I commend, as evidence, the wonderfully heartfelt piece he published in the Hartford Courant just two summers ago:

So long, Ben.

Best,

I have nothing but fond memories of Ben (the Big Feeder) Davol. Particularly on the soccer field at Drew. My heartfelt condolences to his family.

A message to Emmy and "the boy"
I had the pleasure to work with your father at Phadia and now ThermoFisher Scientific. I would suspect you wonder whether or not your Dad talked about you to his colleagues at work. Well, your Dad did talk about you to his colleagues. Please know he loved you and was very proud of you. I also want you to know that your Dad was an incredible colleague. If we had a chance to support your Dad on a project, we jumped at the chance. Your Dad was not only incredibly good at what he did, he also had a huge heart and was easy to be around. My prayers are for God's peace to surround you through family, friends, and the memories you hold dear.
May God Bless You
