History: Ben was born and raised in Deer River, MN. He attended high school at Deer River High School, and went on to college at Itasca Community College & Hibbing Community College, where he graduated with his HVAC degree. Ben worked at Super One Foods in Deer River for many years where he was the local “grocery store rockstar”. As many know, the community recognized Ben as a standout; one of the hardest working employees at the store. Everyone loved to talk to him while shopping and he loved saying “hi” to all the locals. Ben also worked at Paul Bunyan Communications washing cars and doing various odd jobs.
Ben loved to downhill ski with his family every year, enjoyed hanging out on Deer lake boating and was the best dog-sitter for the family dog, Chamois. His biggest hobby, however, was playing video games. His quick wit and sense of humor will be greatly missed.
Honorary pallbearers: Jake Baldwin (cousin), Daniel Baldwin (cousin), Jake Lorentz (brother-in-law), and Tim Skelly (friend).
