My dearest Flo and family, How sad to read of Ben's passing. I will always remember you both as a loving couple and very helpful to me when I worked in Jim Deichman's office. I will always remember when I needed help in hanging up shelves in my new home and Ben stepped right up without hesitation and put up those shelves like a pro! God Bless you Flo; you and your family are in my prayers. Mary Ann Becker

When I started at Met-Ed as a new engineer right out of college, I spent some time with Benny to learn something about line work. Benny was a great teacher - he took me under his wing and taught me a lot - about line work, engineering, good work ethic, and how to be a goo leader. His men respected him. When I was still working 40 years later, I still quoted some of the things Benny said. He was a great person and I am glad I knew him.

What a sad week this is. Ben will always be fondly remembered by myself and family for being such a great friend to my parents, for tireless work and volunteerism at Holy Rosary, and for the many laughs we shared through the years on church trips, gatherings, holidays, and most of all, down the shore! Those days and memories cannot be replaced -- they are so special. I/we will miss him dearly.
