Ben worked for McNally Contractors for many years, thoroughly enjoying every minute of it, everyone he worked with took a liking to him almost instantly.

The family of Ben would like to thank Andy and the Coaldale EMS, nurses on 4C, Melissa from home care, and all the staff and doctor’s at St. Michael’s Palliative Care for their care and compassion.

At Bennie’s request no formal funeral service will be held, he only asks that you have a beer in memory of him.
