Slater, Benjamin (Ben)  
Benjamin (Ben) Slater 11/2/1920 - 12/17/2014 He was a Purple Heart veteran of World War II, having served in the campaigns of North Africa, Italy, Germany and France with the "Santa Fe Battalion," railroad workers who transported troops and supplies when steam engines ruled the rails. Ben was a man of many talents, but his greatest satisfaction came from sharing the Word of God with others. He was preceded in death by his wife of 60 years, Evelyn, brothers Tom and Jim and sisters Grace, Edna and Mabel. He is survived by his daughter, Benalyn Seeley, and granddaughter Karen Seeley, of Auburn, Calif., grandson MSG Kevin Seeley, USA (ret.) and wife, Kimberly, of Colorado Springs, Colo., Sister Mary Selvey, of Phoenix, Ariz., plus three great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. As he wished, no service will be held. Ben's family would like to thank Sutter Hospice and the staff of Almond Gardens Elder Care, both past and present, for the love and care shown him during his years of residence. Arrangements provided by Sierra Foothills Funeral Services. ************************************* Life is like a mountain railroad, with an engineer that's brave; We must make the run successful, from the cradle to the grave; Watch the curves, the fills, the tunnels; never falter, never quail; Keep your hand upon the throttle, and your eye upon the rail. As you roll across the trestle, spanning Jordan's swelling tide, You behold the Union Depot into which your train will glide; There you'll meet the Superintendent, God the Father, God the Son, With the hearty, joyous, plaudit, "Weary pilgrim, welcome home!"- M.E. Abbey
