He continued to be interested in anything to do with nature and the environment, the oil and gas industry, green energy, farming, technology, and politics. Benny semi-retired in 1998 by moving into the town of Hilda. In 2011, he and Wally moved to South County Village in Medicine Hat where he lived until his passing. Ben was most grateful for the tireless prayer support of his family and friends. The family would like to thank the devoted care workers that became Ben’s extended family in his last days.
