Ben and his fiancâe Lindsay, were in the process of fulfilling their dream of building a house together. Ben cherished the precious time spent with Lindsay and their beautiful daughter, Hannah. He truly enjoyed spending time with his family and had joined his parents, Grandma Rose, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins at a cookout on Mother’s Day. Ben also relished the family’s last vacation together when they visited his brother Zach to celebrate his graduation from the United States Marine Corps boot camp in Parris Island, South Carolina.
