Benjamin attended several schools in the San Diego school district, including Freese and Fulton Elementary, Keiller Middle School and Morse High School. At a very young age we discovered that Ben had a natural ear for music, he later took music classes in school and learned how to read and write music. Ben, since childhood had the biggest crush on Alicia Keys and intended to meet her someday and write a song for her!
Benjamin had a gentle, soft spoken way of reaching out and touching people. He is loved and respected by many and will forever be remembered and dearly missed!
