It was such a pleasure to meet and make good memories with Ben and family while in Lahr, Germany. We also loved keeping in touch and having a few visits down through the years. Ben will be missed! Our condolences to Pat and family.
Love and hugs,
Frank and Joan Heyman.

I am so sorry to hear of Ben’s passing. He and Pat were good friends of my parents when we were all in Germany. The Wilsons were our family away from home, us kids were all great friends too. Ben was always kind and thoughtful, a truly good man. My sympathies to Pat, Kathy, Colleen, Laurie and families. Andrea (Puddy) Campbell
