A graduate of Wayne Township High School, he retired from farming in his Lees Creek, New Vienna community in 1978. A lifelong Quaker, he remained active in the Fairview Friends Meeting his entire life. Born to Elmer J. and Stella M.

Following his retirement from active farming, he became active in the Fayette County Council on Aging where he drove a daily Meals-on-Wheels route for thirteen years.

Active in almost every committee at Fairview Friends, he served as Clerk of Meeting for many years and was Quaker Knoll Camp Director. He and wife Ruth Anna organized scores of mission trips to the Indian Council House Friends Meeting in Oklahoma and a Central American mission trip to Belize.

Ben served on the Selective Service Board and the Simon Kenton and East Clinton School Boards. Camper in tow, he introduced his family to almost every western national park. A sports enthusiast and Reds season ticket holder for many years, he played on traveling baseball teams, and enjoyed softball, ping pong, croquet, boating, and water skiing.
