For many years my family has loved Ben, Shannon and their two young boys. We have admired their family’s love for one another, for people, and their love and devotion to God. Our children have enjoyed playdates, holidays, and birthday parties together. I am a friend trying to help make a tragic event less painful.
On June 6,2016 Ben went to work and didn’t return home. Shannon would later discover that while sitting in his work van Ben was caught in cross-fire. He was shot and his life was lost.
Ben was a fiercely devoted husband, a loving father to two small boys, a friend, a Sunday-School teacher. Ben had the sweetest disposition and a beautiful soul. His kind smile was infectious and his soft tone could calm a storm.
I started this GoFundMe account to help alleviate the funeral costs and to give any assistance for his widow to help support their two boys and herself.
If you can’t give financially, please give her your prayers. Pray for their family. Pray for their boys. Pray for the city of Miami and for the violence to stop.
