Ben loved sports, especially basketball. He and his partner won the NBA 2Ball Wisconsin State Championship in 2000. Ben played throughout high school and was known for his graceful three-point shot. He was a talented artist and appreciated good design, especially of the basketball shoes in his collection.
Ben connected with people. He was gregarious, kind, and always tried to offer a good word about others. His bond with the family dog, Penny, was always touching and an insight into his sensitive nature.
He was quick to laugh, intelligent and will be deeply missed. Rest in peace our sweet boy.
