Ben Goodman

May 17, 1938 – Feb 15, 2016

After a short battle with cancer, Ben died peacefully in the early hours of February 15th 2016. 

Ben will be remembered as  a glass artist, an  energetic hiker and longtime member of the Hiking Club, a keen paddler and knowledgeable kayak guide, and an enthusiastic horseback rider. He also enjoyed sailboat racing, downhill and and cross country skiing. 

After retiring from a career in business, Ben returned to school and graduated from the Ontario College of Art in 1990, before moving from Toronto to Salt Spring with his wife Judy in 1996. Life on Salt Spring suited Ben admirably, he enjoyed the artistic community and appreciated the outdoor activities. He will be remembered as an artistic and adventurous spirit, and a kind and thoughtful man.

At Ben’s request there will be no service; his family will hold a celebration of his artwork and his life later this spring.

If you wish to make a donation in Ben’s name, please consider the BCSPCA.
