Ben attended Hope Christian Church in Columbia, IL; he was a member of Monroe County Farm Bureau; supporter of Strong Hold Ministries - Texas & St. Jude Hospital; and he was passionate about family and farming. To those who knew him, Ben was the definition of hard work, determination, and kindness. Selfless and loving, he gave himself fully to his family, his faith, and his community.
