I had the privilege of knowing Ben Bieber in the 1980s when a few of us had offices on the top floor of the Manitoba Youth Centre. He was an intelligent, kind gentleman with a wonderful sense of humour. He will be missed, along with Doug Lawrence and Herb Heppner, two others whose friendship was appreciated by those of us who met for coffee occasionally, and who have departed. R.I.P. Ben. - Posted by: Bill Stevens (Colleague) on: Oct 29, 2019
