He grew up helping his dad cultivate crops on beautiful farm land in the Centerville area. It was while learning farming and farm equipment maintenance that Ben became a lover of motorcycles. He rode his dirt bike all over 200 acres of land for years, Later Ben went on to make many friends in various motorcycle groups and was lovingly known as “Goober”. Ben graduated from The Westfield School in Perry, attended Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, and then started his own trucking company hauling lumber and sod. In his later years, after spending time in Florida working in the engineering field, he went back into driving long haul trips all over the eastern United States. He enjoyed being on the road and seeing America. Ben will be sadly missed by his family - his sisters, Susie McInvale and Kathie Grubb; his niece Kendall Beasley; his nephews, Ben McInvale , Scott George, and Johnny Grubb.
