from Hettie Crescini:
Ben and I met in 1974 and were married in 1975. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary on 13 Dec 2000 and he passed away with cancer on 14 Jan 2001. He was a most patriotic American, a great father and wonderful husband. He is well missed. His hobbies were bowling, dancing and participating in the Senior Olympics games where he was awarded many, many medals and ribbons. He had many friends and was dearly loved.
