We have lost a proud, hardworking man that gave it his all, to the end. Ben was born on August 5, 1934 and passed away on October 29, 2016 at the age of 82. He lived a full life. Ben was the youngest of six kids, raised in Newcastle, Calif. He proudly served in the U.S. Navy.
Ben was a current member of the Navy League and was involved in several car clubs, which had brought him joy over the past 32 years.
Dad was as comfortable tending to his roses and baking cookies as he was operating heavy equipment. He was a grading and excavating contracter in North Lake Tahoe for many years.
