    My deepest sympathy to Ben’s children and family. I have wonderful memories of Ben. He was a great friend, always there for any of us whenever he was needed. He always made everyone smile and laugh regardless of what was going on. Seriously, every time we were able to meet up, typically, with our NASA group he was there full of laughter and smiles. He was humble, intelligent and an all around wonderful person.
    May his warmth and smile stay with us, always.

  3. Eug Arthurs says:

    Ben was always good to me. Although I only knew Ben through a working relation, he treated every question I had with respect and was eager to share information that I could use on the job to my advantage. The amount respect that he gave goes a long way. That truly is a rarity in today’s age. For that I am grateful to have known and worked with Ben. My deepest and sincere empathy to the Strick family. I hope that you find comfort in knowing how admired and and respected Ben was as a collogue. It only leads me to believe he was twice the man when not at work.
    Hang In There
