In his younger years he was a member of the Boy Scouts of America and played baseball from kindergarten to high school for the Gold Star Chili Tigers and Boone County High School his senior year. He currently worked for Meggitt PLC in Erlanger.

Ben enjoyed playing and watching baseball, sports cars, hiking and fishing and being outdoors, the Cincinnati Reds and Bengals, but his greatest joy however, was being a father to his son Jude and spending time with his family.
