Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • Donna and family, my deepest condolences and healing prayers to you and your family. I have known Ben since he started at CP Rail in the mid 80s. He was not only a co worker but a great friend. Ben was a gentleman and a great guy to work with. I remember running into you both whether on a walk in the neighborhood or in the store and always a friendly greeting. A fellow Bomber fan. Ben will be missed. Sincerely Kelly Neufeld - Posted by: Kelly Neufeld (Friend ) on: Jul 30, 2021
