Celebration of Life for Benjamin Andrew Falk

Donation protected
Benjamin Andrew Falk of Austin, Texas passed away unexpectedly on July 15, 2023 in Austin, Texas at the young age of 34. His family is heartbroken by his untimely passing but finds comfort in knowing Ben had a noble end, dying while helping friends work on an Eagle Scout Project in the Texas heat.

Ben was born in Austin, Texas on January 12, 1989, to the late legendary Texas artist, Walter S. Falk, III and Rhonda Stout Falk, who survives him. Ben is also survived by the love of his life, Alyssa Ferguson, their precious daughter, Frannie Anne and their son, Walter S. Falk, IV expected to arrive this winter. He is also survived by his devoted sister, Sheryl Falk and her husband, Richard Retz, Houston, and his loving brother, Nathan Falk and his wife, Amanda Yzaguirre and nephew, Jackson Pearce. He is also survived by a host of beloved cousins, aunts, and uncles and a large circle of faithful friends, whose outpouring of love and support has been extraordinary.

From an early age, Ben loved his Country inspired by his grandfather, Walter Falk, Jr., who served as the Mayor of Rockport. Ben was active in the Boy Scouts and graduated from Rockport-Fulton High School. At 17 years old, Ben volunteered to serve our Country by joining the Army where he was proud to earn his wings as a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter pilot and was honorably discharged as a Chief Warrant Officer (CW2). While serving, Ben studied Electrical Engineering Technologies at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and obtained a B.S. in Aeronautical Science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. He achieved his dream of becoming a lawyer, graduating from Texas Tech Law School where he won national recognition for his advocacy skills. He was a well-respected lawyer at Anderson Roberts PLLC and an owner of Championship Title.

Ben was incredibly intelligent, loquacious, and kind. His love for others really shined in the world around him, and his generous nature caused him to have many loyal friends. All agree, Ben was larger than life, with a heart to match. He inherited the fun gene from his dad, Terry and was the life of every party. He delighted his family and friends with his zest for life, his razor-sharp wit, and his entertaining stories. Ben always had adventures to share, including his climb of Kilimanjaro, hike through the Himalayas to Everest Base camp, and dancing with Massai warriors in Africa.

Ben's life was tragically too short. His deepest sorrow would have been leaving his young children, which were his proudest achievement in life. He would want them to know how much joy they brought him and that wherever he is, he will watch over them and help in any way possible.

Ben was one of a kind. He was much loved, and he left a deep mark on the world in his short time. He will live on through his beautiful children, through his stories, and in the hearts of all who knew him.

There will be a Celebration of Life on Saturday, July 22, 2023, at 1:00 p.m. to honor him at Key Allegro Yacht Club, 1796 Bayshore Drive, Rockport, Texas. As Ben loved celebrations, there will be another celebration held in Austin in the near future.

Contributions may be made to the Benjamin A. Falk Memorial Trust for the benefit of his family.
