Benjamin finished school then became self-employed, enjoying work in the construction and trucking industries.

Benjamin was preceded in death by his mother, Pamela Eley; and grandmothers Phyllis Eley and Rosalyn Cox.

I am profoundly saddened to learn of Ben's passing. He has left his mark of expertise inside and outside of my home in recent weeks. He always had a smile as he would explain various jobs in great detail. Heaven gained a master craftsman. He will be sadly missed and I will be praying for your family.

Sorry for your loss.

Ben did some work in my home, too, and I had found the best worker, (and team), I could get! I had a great deal of respect for Ben as a talented tradesman who could do anything with knowledge and skill! I also admired him as a person-he was polite and had such a calm demeanor. I will miss his sweet soul!
