Ben went on and worked as a website designer for his self-owned company, Next Ripple Technologies. He enjoyed all sports, especially any Minnesota teams. He also enjoyed video games, fishing, cooking, fantasy football and spending time with family. He had a very special place in his heart for his daughter, who he loved to play cribbage with and his granddaughter, who he couldn’t pass up one more Strawberry Shortcake episode. Ben truly enjoyed living on the lake, playing cards, fires and hanging out with friends.
