Ben worked as an assembler for AGCO well over 30 years. He enjoyed making his own tools that made his job easier. He always loved welding different things in his garage. Hunting with his brothers and son were an enjoyable time for Ben. He looked forward to camping and fishing and especially enjoyed his time at Marion Reservoir. Another enjoyment for Ben was sharing time with Janet at his favorite Kansas Star Casino. Family meant everything to Ben and he looked forward to family get-togethers and spending time with his wife, Janet, and their kids, grandkids and great-grandchild.
