Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
My sincere condolences to Gloria, Bradley, and Derek. Ben was one of the good dads. He was very proud of his boys and his grand kids. Family was everything to Ben. It is difficult to recall the number of family dinners, the holiday get togethers or the time spent going to second hand stores and garage sales around Winnipeg. There is no doubt that Ben will be missed. In time all those good memories will make us all smile again. The warmest of regards. Colin - Posted by: colin turnbull (brother in law) on: Jul 23, 2022
When I think of Ben, I remember his generousity. The Komistek door was always opened to family and friends to have a drink or a delicious meal. Ben enjoyed going to church on a Saturday evening as he said that it made him feel good. May Ben not be forgotten and the Komistek legacy continue through his two sons and their children. Rest in peace Ben. - Posted by: ShirleyTurnbull (sister-in-law) on: Jul 23, 2022
