With heavy hearts and sadness, we announce the sudden passing of our beloved father, son, brother, grampy, uncle and friend, Ben. Ben was born in St. John’s, NL, and moved to Ontario at the age of 18. He started his career in the automotive industry as a car painter. He spent his life tinkering with cars. Ben moved to B.C. where he started his family in 1981 with the birth of his daughter, followed by his son a year and half later. His greatest love was being a dad, and uncle, and a grampy. He touched so many lives with his kindness, his smile, and his positive outlook on life. Ben’s Celebration of Life will take place on Friday, September 18 at 11:00am at Garden Hill Funeral Chapel – 11765 224th Street, Maple Ridge.

    We are so sorry to find out that your dad has passed on. Ben always talked so much about the two of you every time we saw him shopping. We know he loved you all so very much and the pride in his eyes showed always. The coming days and weeks will be so sad for you all but take comfort from each other and remember the good times. It is so very hard to have a loved one leave us. This we both know so very well since the loss of our son. It is hard guys and all we can say is one day at a time. Nothing truly will make it better. Just draw comfort from the love you have for Ben. Our phone number is 604-463-2967 if you ever wish to talk. Love from the Piculs
