I enjoyed the time I spent getting to know Ben, and the deer hunts we went on together in Michigan. Ben had a big heart and was always ready with a smile. He was a very good guy and will be missed. My condolences to the friends and loved ones he left behind. Chris

Helen and family.

Ben was part of our hunting group on what we call The Happylands in Vicksburg Michigan. He graciously allowed us to use the property year around for recreational activities. We are mostly retired men now and grew up as friends for over 50 years. We played cowboys and Indians and hung out at the property as children and hunted as we all came of age. About 30 years ago Ben became one of us. He was like family to my brother Randi and his wife Deb.

The hours he shared with our families each trip will be treasured memories forever. Campfires and meals shared around them will never be the same without the Ben being with us. I know all of us from the hunting club would like to thank you for sharing Ben with us.

Our memories are many Ben…Thank you for everything.

Lee and Missy Noel
