    We wish to send our sincere sympathy to Irene, Venise, Stacey, and family. Ben will always remain with all of us in the special memory of him that each one of us has. He was very proud of his family, always having a story (or two) to tell whenever we met him. Although we won't be able to join you to help celebrate the Mass, you will all be in our thoughts and prayers as we follow along on-line.
    Dick & Brenda Scherger

    Dearest Irene, Venise, Stacey, and family,
    So very sorry to hear of your loss. Ben was such a warm and gentle man, caring, quiet and generous. His passion for farming was only surpassed by his love of family. He will always be remembered with fondness and admiration...and love.

    To Irene and. family: Ben was a nice man. He liked to talk about farming and the good old days. Ben liked to play Bingo Tuesday afternoon at Good Samaritans. Take care ❤️
