Ben enjoyed volunteer work and what a great teacher. Ben taught at ACTION Training for Employment for many years. He loved having an office with him name on the window, that way the students had no excuses and could always find him and be ready for their studies. He was love by all at ACTION and will be missed here at Goodwill. Our Saturdays have been so special --- Burga, Ben and Friends all meet at Seven Angels (Appleton) for friendship and laughter. I will certainly miss his great hugs. Ben we will miss you and we will take care of your Burga she is so special.

Mrs. Foltz, Steve and Greg, You all have my deepest sympathy on the loss of your husband and Father. I often remember the good times I spent with Steve at your house and how good you both were to me. At times it seems forever ago and at other times it's like it all happened just yesterday. They are times I will never forget. I'll keep you all in my prayers.

What comes to mind when you think of Ben? Intelligence, warmth and compassion!! He was "present" to all people and very giving. How lucky my husband, Dick, and I were to have had him as a friend.
