I will always remember our Broad Street Gang growing up. We had wonderful times on Broad Street and will always have the memories. Friends are someone you will always have in your heart and very thankful for that.

Joe Ben & Family were the greatest neighbors to my Grandmother, Margery Casebier, and to us when we lived there while Dad was overseas. He also took good care of her & us when she passed away while here in Georgia, moving her back to Central City/Greenville. We had the opportunity to stop by on one of our trips to CC, and were greeted as if no time had passed. Rest In Peace, Joe Ben. Our sympathies to the entire family for such a great loss.

His gentle means of sculpting souls
Took me years to understand.

Until we meet again, JB.❤

So sorry to hear about my friend Joe Ben. He certainly was a friend to all and always made a special effort to help. Joe Ben and Tucker Funeral Home took special care of my Mom & Dad(Ann and Henry Hunsaker)when we were in such pain. Thank You! RIP Joe Ben
