Beth and Marilyn Ben was one of the first persons I met in Midland in 1967. He helped me many times with his wise thinking during my career at Dow. He truly made Dows medical department one of the best in the country. More importantly I enjoyed talking to him about cruising the Great Lakes. He was a master Captain. As we cruise the channel this summer I will raise my glass and toast Ben. He truly lived a great life and will be missed by many. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all.
