1924 - 2017
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Benjamin Richard Hallman on July 5, 2017 in Kamloops BC. Ben was born in Macklin Sask on Oct 18, 1924. Left to mourn are his wife Norma, daughters Barbara (husband Tim), Darlene (husband Ray), and Colleen. Grandchildren Cody (husband Matt), Erin (partner Todd), Angela, Winston and Great Grandchildren Nox Zoey and Maxwell.
Ben was a veteran of WWII who never discussed with his family the atrocities he witnessed. He chose to live live with joy and laughter instead and immersed himself in hard work. He was an avid Gardener and delightful father.
There will be a celebration of his life Tuesday July 18th at Hills of Peace Lutheran Church at 11 am with a reception to follow.
Special thanks to the Ponderosa Lodge where Ben spent the last six months of his life. The kindness and support for his needs did not go unnoticed or unappreciated.
