Ben had a charismatic smile with a contagious sense of humor. He was at peace with who he was and had a gentle calming presence to him. He lived his life with a strong drive to accomplish his goals, trying to make the most out of the present; never worrying about the past nor future. He devoted much of his life to his passions- physics and music. Ben was a deep thinker and the challenges of physics intrigued him. He was a fantastic drummer of jazz/rock music. Ben’s art work is on the quilt square. He entitled the work “The Order of Law.” It is an illustration of his life’s passions.
