With his much loved daughters holding his hand Ben left us peacefully to join his beloved Sharon. Ben loved music, woodworking, and time spent in Mexico. He was an artistic man who had a zest for life. He will be remembered by his family and friends with a smile and especially by his grandchildren for his silly rhyming and made up words. He is predeceased by his love Sharon, his parents Friedrich and Berta, brother Hank, son-in-law Larry. He is survived by his daughters, Janine (George), Michelle (Lorne), grandchildren Chad (Angela), Jeff, Kayla, Brock (Kelsey), great grandchildren, Nash, Mackenzie, Robert, and one on the way. Ben is also survived by his sister Ingrid (Rolph), niece Patty (Jeff) and many other nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank all of the doctors and nurses who cared for Dad. There will be a celebration of life at a later date and Ben’s ashes will be scattered in his favorite place, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
