Church, Benjamin “Ben” Garth, 42, Brooklyn, Hants County. With deep sadness we announce the passing of our cherished husband, father, son, brother, and friend. Ben passed away on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 after a fierce battle against AML. He won over the hearts of many with his infectious smile and caring heart. Even in his final days he continued to put others first. “Kitty” or “Kit” was happiest when he was with his boys, in a hay field, or puttering on the family farm. In his younger years, Ben was known for being the life of the party and will be greatly missed by so many close friends. For the past 19 years Ben was a dedicated employee of Kynock Resources Ltd. Surviving are his wife, Ashleigh (Plume); sons, Colton, Maddox and his fur baby Dozer; parents Dell and Cheryl (Blackburn) Church; sisters Lori, Kelly (Ryan Brown); and several nieces and nephews. Predeceased by maternal grandparents Leonard and Virginia Blackburn; and paternal grandparents George and Minnie Church. The family would like to thank all of the many nurses and doctors who gave such phenomenal care over these past few months. Special thanks go to the nurses in the Hants Community Hospital Emergency Department and Ambulatory Care, Dr. Amanda MacDonald and Dr. Bezanson, all of the nurses and support staff from 8A, Dr. Abid and Dr. Couban, and the doctors and nurses from 3A ICU.
