Benjamin Michael White was born on December 12, 1974, to Michael White and Wanda Michels. He joined his big sister, Gina (Frog-a-logs) at his birth. Benjamin “Ben,” was eighteen years old when he became a big brother to his brother, Jack, who was the “apple of Ben’s eye”.
Ben grew up in Worthington, MN, and Rochester, MN, but called a few other Minnesota cities home over his childhood as well. He attended and graduated from Lincoln High School in Sioux Falls. After high school, he continued his education and went on to receive his business degree. Ben also studied for and earned his realtors’ license.
Ben was very ambitious and was successful at most everything he attempted. After he received his business degree and realtors’ license, he became a very successful businessman, realtor, and property manager. Somewhere along the line, Ben found time to perfect his martial arts skills and achieved the level of 1st Degree Black Belt.
Ben cherished his life composed of the things that he loved the most such as dogs, children, his momma, football, and his savior Jesus.
Ben leaves behind his momma, Wanda; his dad, Michael; his five siblings, Gina, Jack, Jesse, Aaron, and Taylor; his niece, Courtney; nephew, Jordan; and his many friends: Mick, Bryon, Jerry, Jon, and so many more.
Ben will always be in our hearts and will be cherished forever.
