is heart, Sierra and Asia; his parents, John Boyle and Barbara Babcock Kirsch; his brother, Sol; and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, in-laws and extended family, colleagues and a life time of precious friends.
Ben was a loving husband, adoring father, precious son, faithful brother, the “Cool”uncle, and friend to all. His dedication to his passion for his work, enthusiasm for life and expertise behind the wheel (top 1 percent) was unique and without comparison. The love he showed to his family will be remembered and treasured immensely, but his absence leaves a huge empty space in all our hearts.

Please use this tragedy as a reminder to never miss an opportunity to get off the couch to take your kids for ice cream, remind your spouse how lucky you are to have them in your life. Please never miss the opportunity to give or receive a hug and express your love.
