August 5, 1935 – October 30, 2021

Ben was an extremely bright, witty, and quiet man. Bennie and Louise (nee Joyal), sweethearts since age 15, married in 1955 - 66 years! Now reunited with Mom, Annie and Dad, Steve.
Loved by daughters, Lyn (Dave) and Karen; son Ben (Chauntelle). Gramps to Ryan, Adam and Hunter; Great-Gramps to Eric.
He retired from Bristol and loved cars, fishing, hunting, pickling his own herring, The Harmonicats, Bogey, and making Yule Logs (donating hundreds to hospitals and seniors). Our family had no idea of his philanthropy until we saw his photo in the paper - Mr. Modest.
Ben wanted no service, so think of him at his cabin, in nature, where he was most happy. Ben said he would love to have been a river otter.

On to the next adventure!
