Friends Of Ben  KALISPELL, MT
Ben Parsons, 36, of Kalispell was an incredible family man and friend. He was killed January 5, 2017 in an avalanche while backcountry skiing on Stanton Mountain in Glacier National Park.

With heavy hearts we create this page to honor Ben and his beautiful family. He leaves behind his wife Jennifer, one-year-old son Rowen, parents Larry and Valerie Parsons, sister Josie Parsons, and countless family and friends who loved him. 

Ben's infectious enthusiasm for life inspired us in so many ways. His light shone brightly as a father and a husband. He was a true friend who was always loving and accepting of the people around him. A Whitefish firefighter and paramedic, he was an elite athlete known as one of the best ski mountaineers and mountain bikers in the West, his pursuits taking him to Europe.

Please help us give back to the family of our true friend and glowing member of our community by contributing to this fund for Jen and Rowen.

We love you so much, Ben. You will forever make our lives brighter.
