Ben was blessed with so many good cousins, aunts and uncles.

Ben was passionate about animals, especially his beloved cat, Mr. Kitty.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Bill and Kay Hoover and Dr. Lyle and Margaret Adams.

Ben was a non-conformist who had little interest in worldly goods. He struggled to maintain the average ‘norm’ in the workplace and would much rather be gardening, playing his drums, or cooking.

He was a gentle spirit with beautiful blue eyes.
