Ben’s family moved to Alamo, Texas, where Ben graduated from PSJA Memorial High School. Ben also played basketball and football. He was looking forward to his move to Indiana and starting the next phase of life.
Benjamin loved making everyone laugh. Being with friends and family was his most favorite. He especially loved his little brothers and sisters. He was very protective of his siblings, yet he loved to pick on them. He didn’t like it when they picked back. Ben was a jokester. He always left cheese wrappers in his pockets, regular American cheese slices for his mom to find. He enjoyed dressing nice like with his Jordan shoes, Nikes, and playing basketball at home.
Ben’s favorite song was PIMP w/ G-unit Snoopy Day since he was a little kid. He loved to Rap with friends. And he was loved by all.
