Ben Cooper's Memory Care Facility
For the past year Ben has been in a memory care facility in Moreno Valley, CA near his primary caregiver, Craig White. Craig also is the caregiver for his wife, Ben's daughter Kelley, who was hospitalized multiple times in 2016 alone, and is now diagnosed with dementia. Craig, Kelley and Ben have moved to Memphis to be near Ben’s beloved granddaughter PK . Craig and Kelley will stay with PK and family, while Ben will be in a care facility nearby.
When Pamela’s health failed, Ben was Pamela's only caregiver for five years until she passed. Sheer fatigue and grief may have impacted his affairs more than any of us knew. While Ben and Pamela successfully built a legacy in preparation for retirement, unfortunately, the IRS has been diverting much of their business cash flow. Until this situation is resolved, the few remaining family members are in need of help in covering the moving costs and establishing a small fund to support Ben in a new care facility.
We deeply thank you in advance for whatever you may be able to offer. If any funds remain after Ben passes, the remainder will be donated to Ben's favorite charities listed below.
- St. Judes Children's Hospital
- The Wounded Warrior Project
- Happy Trails Children's Foundation

Are we able to send a card to Ben?
Ben was one of our frequent and very popular guest stars at the Williamsburg Film Festival. We've really missed his smiling face, jokes and funny stories. We will be helping our friend .
