My wife , elois and I, Michael spivey worked 11 years at kaiser aluminum with Ben. He was always happy and made us laugh during work. He was a true pleasure to see and be around every day at work. He was a hard worker and a very dedicated family man. He spoke of his wife all the time. He truly loved her . After all these years we often spoke of our days at kaiser aluminum and Ben was always a key figure in our fond memories. Its always tough to lose a good person but GOD was ready for him to come with him as we all must do. So he will live in our hearts and minds until we meet again! May GOD bless his family and give them strength through these difficult times.
