My deepest sympathy to Bens family. I have only the fondest memories of Benji as we used to call him.  We were friends since grade school and he never failed to being a smile and laugh to all of us that ran around together.  My heart is a lot sadder tonight with missing him.

I knew Benji at Edgewood Grade School.  He was always talkative and smiling. Called him "Smilin' Bennie"  after the comic strip character "Smilin' Jack".  Am sure he like it!  After Misery Jackson's class... Benji would head for the li'l neighborhood grocery store across the street!  After pulling our pennies and nickels out of a Mason jar, would splurge on a top... and would spin our tops right there on the sidewalk next to the grocery store in a battle to win our opponent's top.  Benji was good with a yo-yo too. Benji went to North Jr. High, but lost contact with him at RHS.  Salute! Benji, I'm sure you'll be playing tops in the Big Sky!

I am saddened to hear of  Ben's death.  My condolences and best wishes go to his wife, family and friends.  I lived next door to Benji on 8th street when we were in first grade.  Ben, Waldine Helmer and I used to walk to school  together each day.  He was a bit mischievous back then, and at one time threw my gloves up in a tree!  My first date was with Ben in the 7th grade on a hayride.  RIP, Ben, you were a good guy!

When I moved to E. 8th Street in Roswell in the summer before sixth grade, Benji and Waldine were the first friends I met. His passing made me sad. He was nice guy. Condolences to his family.
