Ben Henry's parents and mine where close friends. And I became good friends with him and his sister and brothers at family gatherings up at their farm near "Rock Bridge". In the late Fifties Ben Henry was known as the "Judge" to classmates and friends because of his level demeanor and easy conversation. He was looked to for council and/or mediation. He owned a Harley 74 and then a 1955 flat black Chevy with a 409 jammed under the hood. To me and mine he will always be "just good folks". We are indeed sorry for the family's loss and will miss him as well.

Ben, Kathy and children. It is so sad and with a heavy heart that we send this message to you & your family. I loved your daddy & admired the person he was and how much he meant to so many of us. His positive and inspiring way of looking at things and acting was a attribute to the person he was. He was loving, kind, generous and thoughtful.He was a wonderful person inside & out! He will be greatly missed by all that knew him. How richly blessed we all are to have had him in all lives & how richer for knowing him. It is our prayer that the "Peace of God" resonate with you during this time. Donna Haynes Prestage & Family
