  10. Very sorry to hear of this loss. Ben & I served together, and attended training in Memphis & down at Cherry point. A better and more giving friend I have never known. I was blessed to be able to make a trip or three home with Ben & meet some of your family…around 1996 as I recall. I know this has left a big hole…a big heart will do that. Ben, I love you Brother. Semper Fi.

  11. We are deeply sorry about your loss. You are in our prayers. “If the Army and Navy ever look on heaven scenes they will find the streets are guarded by the United States Marines’. In our prayers. God bless.

  12. Our deepest condolences to Selena and Noah. Ben touched so many of our youth, and we were lucky to have known him. Lisa and Tanner McNeal

  13. Selena, I am so sorry for your loss and to everyone feeling the pain from this. Our hearts feel their capacity to love and care when it hurts so much losing someone. George and I send our prayers to you and Noah.

  14. I was a friend of Ben’s. My son Justin Fisher and I would often have times together at his new built home in Currituck and Ben would have me laughing so hard I’d leave with a belly ache. Ben also did some late night work on my AC unit when it went out and my first wife “Sally” was bed ridden – he was always there when I needed him. My heart felt condolences for the family – he’ll be missed!

  15. Our sincere condolences to Ben’s family and friends. May God grant you peace and comfort. He was a good man and will be missed by many.

  16. I was so sorry to hear about Ben’s passing. He was a good friend for many years. My prayers go out to his family, I hope they find comfort knowing he is now with his Lord and Savior. He may be gone from this world but he will never be forgot.

  17. We were so sorry to hear about Coach Ben. He will always be Coach Ben to us and especially to Sam. He taught Sam so so much not only soccer but discipline and respect and much more. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Selena and Noah and your family. Rest in peace Coach Ben and know that you were loved by many. ❤😥
