We are so sorry for your loss. We loved hockey games with him as he was always a great competitor and a fine young man. Always confident, capable and able to compete with talent and grace. My son thought he was fun to be on the ice with and against. Goalies are special guys. With love and sympathy, the Sprich family, Frank, Diana and Frank

My condolences to the family and friends. Take time to grieve and celebrate a life well-lived. The loss of a loved one is truly a loss no matter how long we have them with us, but remember the Almighty God promises to be near to all those calling on him (Psalm 145:18)

Kim- shocked & heartache does not describe how we feel for you & the entire family. My sincerest prayers that the Lord will help you all get through this.
'A joy shared is doubled- but a sorrow shared is cut in 1/2. ' Thankful you have loving people near to help you through.
My best & forever memory of Ben will be winning the Chaminade hockey game at 1AM. Sending my love & prayers!

Dear Family of Ben, I did not know Ben long, but in the short time I did, I learned of his passion for EMS and helping people. He was well liked by those who interacted with him, and any time I spoke with him it was always positive, he was a true professional. My condolences to you all and my thoughts and prayers will be for you in the coming months. Trish Gathje, Rochester/Austin MN
