Friends and family we are humbly asking for help. My 28 year old brother, Ben Knutson, has passed away very suddenly and left his wonderful wife and two beautiful children behind. Joanna, who is 9, was Ben's shadow and daddy's little girl. Braiden, who is 2, is Bens mini me. He looks and acts just like Ben. Since November Ben has been in and out of the hospital. He had been diagnosed with asthma. The first time he was hospitalized for three days and he was intubated because of respiratory failure. One month later he had gone back into the ER for trouble breathing and he was admitted again, except this time it was just overnight. We thought this was a good sign until last Saturday night. Ben and Kaelyn were on their way to the hospital when Ben became unresponsive. Ben's heart stopped and his brain had gone without blood and oxygen for over twenty minutes. The doctors revived him, but he had a heart attack and respiratory failure simultaneously. Ben passed away last night surrounded by his loved ones. He had been in the hospital for almost a week. Ben was so protective over his family and loved the Florida Gators, San Francisco 49ers, New Jersey Devils, Chicago Bulls, and US national soccer team . He was very passionate about so many things, especially his family and sports. He had one of the best work ethics that I've ever seen. Ben worked at Schott Pharmaceutical and rose in the ranks very fast. In a worldwide company Ben was the youngest setup 3 throughout the company. Any kind of donation would help our family tremendously. We want to help lay him to rest and help my sister in law cover her bills. Medical bills and not working have put a financial strain on our family. Thank you in advance for the help.
