Desmond, Benjamin

Ben was a proud Irish man who's smile could light up the room!  He was born to Benjamin and Prudence.  Ben's mother did much mindful planning for his future with progressive ideas. Ben's mother remained close with Ben until her death.  Ben was blessed with a dear family friend in Kathie Jepson, friend of mom who kept her promise staying close to Ben and they enjoyed time together at church which was important to both of them.  Ben enjoyed coffee and many laughs with Kathie until she passed in 2021.Ben shared many stories about his time at Cambridge, his travels abroad, ties to a castle in Ireland and  presented at Merrick day program where he worked many years.  Ben enjoyed time with friends, watching his old TV shows and being King of the castle of B2 home.  Ben shared a home with 3 special roommates and spent some of his best days with the ladies in Roseville.  Ben will be missed and is very loved. Ben's eyes twinkled with joy.  Heaven gained a precious angel.
