Obituary Condolences

icon Ben D. Allison, D.D.S., 77, of Carmel, IN, passed away surrounded by his family, Graduate of York High School, Class of 1953, Taylor University Class of 1957 and University of Illinois Dental School Class of 1961, U.S. Air Force Veteran. Ben was a co-founder of Elmhurst Dental Associates, a member of the Elmhurst Lions Club, Elmhurst Park District and Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Boards. An avid golfer, he was passionate about his Bears, Cubs and Hawks. He loved singing, playing various musical instruments and creating stained glass. Ben never let facts get in the way of an excellent story and his feigned persona of the put-upon, harassed father of way too many bossy children and rambunctious grandchildren hid the kindest of hearts and a deep pride in his family. Ben was the beloved husband of the late Mary, for over 52 years; loving father of Nancy (Mike) Worley, Sharon (Scott) Thiems, Susan (Bob) Bruns, Ben (Ann) Allison, Maggie Allison and Liz (Matt) Pusateri; proud grandpa of 14 and great-grandpa of 2; dear brother of John (Joan) and the late Sharon; fond uncle of numerous nieces and nephews, cousins and lifelong friend of many. Visitation Saturday, 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. with a funeral service at 4:30 p.m. at Gibbons Funeral Home, 134 South York Road, (1/2 mile North of Saint Charles Road), Elmhurst. In lieu of flowers please send donations to The Thiems Foundation, c/o District 205 Center, 162 S. York Rd., Elmhurst IL 60126. For funeral information please call 630-832-0018 or www.gibbonsfuneralhome.com.
