Ben was a Foreman for Muchuda and JF Allen in his early years, and a master of trades and construction for most of his life. He loved the land and farming, especially raising baby calves. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t do and no task he couldn’t complete. He loved his family and enjoyed when they came together. Ben was a generous kind-hearted man, and his family will miss him dearly.

In honoring Mr. Queen’s wishes he will be cremated.
