So long Former bumble bee
29 June 2020 My deepest condolences for your loss.
I played rugby with Ben in our teenage years for the mighty yellow and black Wick High Bumble bees.
Although he wasn't the most athletic or skilled players I've graced the field with he was one of the most enthusitic, jovial and well liked guys I've had the pleasure of playing alongside.
He was always quick to break the ice in tence situations and keep our young egos in check.
I will always remember him for his bus ride banter, quick quips and belly donut party tricks.
Although we fell out of touch after school and never knew each other as adults Ben was part of a rugby brotherhood that will always be part of our lives.
My thoughts are with his young family at this shocking time, I'm sure he'll sorely missed.
