It is truly of great sadness that we have learned of Ben's passing.
We thoroughly enjoyed the sharing of stories when we visited him in his accounting office. He truly was a remarkable man. We will miss his quick wit, and the leaning of his adventures throughout his long life. Our sincere condolences to the Munro family.

Lori and Patsy, it is with a broken heart that I express my extreme sorrow to hear of Ben's passing. He was such an awesome man, Dad, Grandpa and friend to all. We are so saddened to have lost such a great friend. Many times while passing by his office I would stop in for a hello and ask that he sing his special song that he wrote for you Patsy. I never left without either a good laugh shared, a memory talked about, a word of advice given, or tears shed after he sang your song to me. He warmed my heart just to be near him....not only at tax time, but anytime I popped in for a visit to share a bit of time with him. I was always comforted by knowing he was just down the block if I needed help. I know how much he loved all of you, and shared many stories of you, Lori and Lana, growing up and of his precious grandchildren and their wonderful stories too. On several occasions I was greeted at the door by a lovely little girl asking me how she could help me today. I would respond "I'm here to see your Grandpa". Her reply would most often be that "everyone comes here to see my Grandpa" which would always give me a good chuckle. You have such wonderful memories spanning decades together, and the love you have for each other I hope will help you heal as you stand together to share with each other the love your Dad built within your family. I know that losing Ben has left a huge hole in all of your hearts. I pray for comfort for each of you, in remembering what a wonderful Husband and Dad he truly was and also how very proud he was of each and every one of you. Our sincere condolences, sent with love and much affection. From the Levy Family, Leanne, Phil, Kevin, Skye and Teagan

We are very sorry to hear that Ben has passed away. May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
Cathy and I had the pleasure of working with Ben. He did our books for the last 6 years. We always enjoyed year end when we could sit for a few hours with Ben and listen as he would share some of his best memories with us as well as give an update on what his beloved family was up too.
Ben is one of the most interesting people I have ever met, he will truly be missed by many.

Patricia and Family.
I will be out of the country when you gather to recall Ben's lifetime of fun and accomplishments.

We graduated from CMA together and have maintained a business relationship over the decades. In recent years we established a closer personal / business relationship, including the sharing of many stories.

Reminisce and remember the good times, as there are many. Ben will certainly be missed.

Please accept my condolences and take care of yourself and your family.
