Ben was employed at Ewing Irrigation in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He was known as everyone's "Go to Guy". Ben was a hard worker and provider for his family. He was a free spirit who accomplished so much in such a short amount of time. His greatest accomplishment was becoming a daddy. Ben was proud of the life he created.

He enjoyed music in all forms, concerts and festivals. He fell in love with the Colorado Mountains. He loved hiking with his "first baby" Kamuy and camping with friends. His smile was contagious and his energy was bright. Ben never knew a stranger and made friends wherever he traveled.
