Ben Olaizola

March 6, 2016

Kill Devil Hills – Ben Olaizola passed away peacefully on March 6th at the age of eighty-four years old. Ben is survived by his wife Ruth, as well as a large extended family.

Ben had a eventful life and was particularly proud of his accomplishments in the Military during the Korean War. He worked as a ticket agent for Metro North in New York until his retirement. Ben and his wife, Ruth, enjoyed their vacations at the Outer Banks and eventually became residents of Kill Devil Hills over twenty years ago.  Ben enjoyed singing, and was a member of a singing group, performing and recording songs in the early 1960s. He also was an avid sports fan, enjoyed classic movies, and the latest “new thing.” He loved animals, and could always be relied on to provide a good joke or two at any given time.

Expressions of sympathy are welcome on the on-line register at Gallop Funeral Services was entrusted with arrangements.
