Ben was a very good man. All of us who were lucky enough to work with Ben, looked up to him and admired him for the man he was. Ben was an honest, hard working gentleman, who was always respected by the people he served. God bless the Lubinski family.

My condolences to the Lubinski family. I had the privilege of working with Ben early in my law enforcement career. Ben was rock solid in everything he did and I learned much from him. He was one of the good guys and will be missed.

My deepest sympathy for your loss.
