BENJAMIN JOHN HALLENBECK

As friends and family commented, he was always ready to go the extra mile to help others – helping others in anyway possible. His greatest love after his family was music. He was a self-taught musician playing drums, guitar, and ukulele.
He performed at open-mike nights around the Capital Region. The latest venue was Eden Café in Loudonville. He was a sport's enthusiast. He played basketball, baseball, football, and tennis. He looked forward to teaching music to his children and playing sports with Israel and Isla.
Friends spoke of Ben as the life of every party. He went out of his way to help those in need. His light in this world will be greatly missed.
