Ben owned and operated Door County Tree Tech for 14 years.  He enjoyed fishing on the Ahnapee River and the Forestville Flowage, hunting, boating, and everything related to the outdoors.  Ben wanted to make every day an adventure with his children.  He loved spending time with his family and friends, and making people laugh.  He had an infectious smile and was the best father.

A public visitation at the Forbes Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay will be held from 2:00 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. on Tuesday, July 28, 2020.  A private family memorial service will follow.  In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established for Ben’s children.  On-line condolences may be offered at forbesfuneralhome.com
