Not sure what to say?


It was great to know someone who would always have a great smile and good conversation. Great person.

Ben was a good friend for many years. I will miss him greatly.

Dear Yara, Clea, and Garrett,
I'm so very sad to hear of your Dad's passing. He was such a wonderful man. I am very thankful to have known him. I remember his generosity at holidays with our family and his passion for his life's work. Such an immense loss.

Over the 30 yrs since he interviewed me for a job Ben was supportive and helpful whenever I had a difficult question or interesting situation. It would have been great to work directly with him. He was a great explorer and a true "Gentleman". Garrett, you had a great Dad. My thoughts and condolences to you and your family.

Ben was a wonderful man. He hired me to work for Placer Development as a summer student back in 1980. It was a great learning experience for me, and I went on to work for Placer Development and then Placer Dome Inc. for 25 years. Thanks, Ben.

I met him a few years ago and enjoyed a friendship in the distance and good talks. It was a pleasure to share good times with you.

My sympathy goes out to the Ainsworth family during your time of grief. A life well lived will surely be missed by many. As the days and weeks pass and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love of family and friends. I hope the words at 1 Thessalonians 4:13,14 can serve as a hope to you all.
