Benjamin McFadyen

MCFADYEN, Benjamin James

August 31 1990 ~ August 29 2022

Passed away suddenly at home on Monday, August 29, 2022.  Ben was full of life. He loved being outside in nature, hiking, camping and exploring. He was a kind and gentle soul who loved to learn and share his knowledge. He was wise beyond his years. He was the first to offer help, he loved brewing beer, gardening and playing guitar.

Ben will be terribly missed by his loving and cherished fiancé, Ashley Benallick. He leaves behind his honored and proud parents Jim and Robin McFadyen; his in laws Jeff and Verona Benallick; his sister Leah and nephews Tim and Luke as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.  He will be dearly missed by his friends, leaders and fellow university members and by his beloved four legged buddy, Coby.  Cremation has taken place.

A celebration of Ben’s life will be held at the GILCHRIST CHAPEL – McIntyre & Wilkie Funeral Home, One Delhi Street, Guelph on Thursday, September 8, 2022 at 11:00 a.m.  The family will greet friends from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m in the funeral home chapel.  Casual dress only.  Reception to follow service.  Please gather with us as we celebrate the kind man Ben was.
