1976 — 2014
It is with sadness that the family announces the untimely death of Ben Green on June 26, 2014, at the age of 38 years. Ben is survived by his wife Cherie and their children Chantel and Shaun, as well as Breanne, his child from a prior relationship.
He is also survived by his sisters Tracy (Sam) Holtz, Debbie (Brian) Cockshott and Cindy Barton (Rob Fyn), as well as his step-father Glen Wason, father Allan Green and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, co-workers and friends.
Ben was predeceased by his mother Ruby Green and brother Chris Barton.
Ben was born in Port Alberni, B.C., on Jan. 6, 1976. He moved to Stettler, where he finished his schooling.
He married Cherie Weeks and their children, Shaun and Chantel, are now three and five years old. Ben was involved with the Stettler Youth Group and he enjoyed fishing, camping, playing pool and bowling. He particularly enjoyed spending time with family and friends, especially annual Thanksgiving gatherings.
Ben loved to cook and was awesome at it. His early employment was as a restaurant cook. In 2003, he moved on to a successful career in the road-building industry in Saskatchewan. Ben became adept at all aspects of curb, gutter and sidewalk construction and was an excellent concrete finisher.
He was dedicated, hard working and highly valued by his employer. Not only was Ben a reliable employee, he was usually one of the first to arrive at work each morning. Ben was a quiet person who worked harmoniously with his co-workers and got along well with people. He is greatly missed.
A gathering for family, co-workers and friends will take place on Saturday, Aug. 16, 2014, at 2 p.m. in the Castor Golden Circle (4903-51 Street, located behind Magnet AG Foods), followed by a barbecue pot-luck to which all are invited to attend at Huber Dam Campground, 11 kilometres east of Castor on Secondary Highway 599, then turn south onto Range Road 131 or take Highway 12 east to Fleet and turn north on Range Road 131. Huber Dam will be on the east side of Range Road 131.
For those who wish to contribute in Ben’s memory, a trust fund has been established for Chantel and Shaun. Contributions may be delivered to Cherie Green, Trustee, Box 823, Castor, AB, T0C 0X0.
