  1. Mr. Ken Moore says:

    This is to the family of Ben Selby, a friend of my son, Andrew, and one of my recreational summer baseball kids. I send my condolences to the family, as well as a thanks for making my son, Andrew, a part of Ben’s life. Andrew enjoyed coming to the house to hang out with Ben, and I always enjoyed hearing when Ben called to ask if Andrew could come and visit. Ben was a good ball player, and always had a good spirit when he talked to me. Him and Andrew saw a few movies together at the M-89 theater, and Andrew always said he enjoyed himself. God Bless all of you, and again, I send condolences at the loss of Ben. He was a great kid.

    Ben was my little cousin. It seems like just yesterday he was a little boy but how fast he grew up and truned into a young man. I did not get to spend much time with him but the time i did spend with him he was always so happy and always had a joke up his sleeve. He will be missed so so much by us all and by Jehovah God who will so soon wake him up to be with us again in paradise.

  11. Stuart & Teresa Sebright says:

    Our most sincere condolences on your loss. We heard about Ben last night from Lavina.

    Ben was a good friend to our boys Kyle and Jacob. We would often see him when he was at his grandparents. Ben loved to fish with our boys in the pond or do anything outdoors. We liked that he encouraged our boys to do more outdoors and get away from their video games. He was always very upbeat and courtious.

    We and our boys will miss him. May God give all of you strength and comfort during this time.

  12. Emily, Cheryl, and Sarah Soderquist says:

  13. Lindy Holmes says:

    I am so sorry for your loss. Ben was an amazing kid here on earth and will be an amazing angel in heaven. Of course this world will miss his beautiful smile but it is comforting to know we will see him again someday.

  21. Stephen Cramer says:

    As a substitute teacher I’ve known Ben since he was in 5th grade. Ben was always a good student for me. His smile was contagious, he laughed a lot, and he seemed to genuinely enjoy life. It’s tragic to see such a life lost so early. My family and I are praying for Ben, his family and friends, and the rest of the community. Our heartfelt condolences go out to all of you.

  22. Dalene Anson says:

    Hi Annette and Dave,

    I was terribly saddened to hear about your loss. I will not be able to attend the visitation or funeral as my husband is undergoing treatment for cancer in Ann Arbor and we are gone during the week, but I wanted you to know how deeply sorry I am. I hope that God will grant you strength to endure this difficult time.

  25. Cindy Yonkers, Fennville Rod & Gun Club says:

    All of us at the Club will miss Ben dearly and offer our condolences to the family. Not long ago he helped cook chicken with the crew and helped me get the Newsletters folded and ready for mailing.

    He was a great kid – always with a smile on his face. He’s at peace..

  26. Bethany Peacock says:

    Personally, I did not know Ben. But, I did see him during lunch this past year on occasion. He always looked so happy, and it’s breath-taking that he is no longer physically with us. It makes me really think about taking things for granted. So, I thank Ben for teaching me this; even though I do regret his death. I am so sorry to Ben’s family and friends, but at least he lived the life he wanted.

    “The good always die young.”

    Keep that in mind.

    You’ll be in my prayers.

  34. Rachel Wilgenhof says:

    There is an event I’m trying to get started at my school this friday, In honor of Ben, we’re getting as many people as we can to wear camo. Ben was such a sweet kid. I’ve gone to school with him for 11 years now and my most recent memories with him were in my physics class. he constantly talked of his family and his aspirations and hunting and just about everything he cared about. He was passionate about the things he set his mind to and he was confident in the work he did, even in physics.. I’m gonna miss you bud.. rest in peace <3

  35. Kati Riston says:

    Ben, you were an amazing kid. We never were really close friends but everyday when i walked by you in the halls you had a big smile on your face. You were proud of who you were and i dont think there was ANYONE who disliked you. When i found out about this terrible accident my heart sank. Ben you will always be in my heart. Dont worry, i promise you that we will honor you at graduation, you deserve it! My prayers and thoughts are to your family. and i dont consider this a good-bye, this is more of a “see you soon”! 🙂

  36. Brittany Smith says:

    Ben was a good friend of my brother Storm since Kindergarten. He was a very kind-hearted person. I was very saddened to hear what had happened to Ben as was my whole family. I can only imagine what you are feeling right now, but my thoughts and prayers are with your family.

  38. storm says:

    Dave and Annette, I’m so sorry Ben was such a good kid i can honestly say that Ben was like my brother. I’m not one that is known to cry and it seems as tho it keeps happening. i love that kid. This is such a tragedy. i remember him always talking to me telling me it would be ok or i know storm he is better than that or he would stick up for me if i was gonna get introuble and he would help me and tell the teacher that i didn’t do anything if it was the truth. i will always remember comming over and playing video games or playing with those farret’s or riding bikes all the time. the only time Ive laughed today was thinking of the good times we had. he used to tease me and everything because i wouldnt jump into the pool because it was cold and he always got me in there some how. ben you are with the big guy now and i guess what they say is everything happens for a reason and i guess thats what happened. well i love ya ben. R.I.P. bro

  39. Bobby says:

    I didn’t know Ben, but I do know that no one deserves go at such a young age like that, Dave and Annette, you guys are in my thoughts and prayers every night, so sorry for you loss.

  45. Dawn LaVoy says:

    I worked with Ben during my first year at Starr, and I remember him as being the highlight of my workday during an otherwise difficult year. He was friendly, cheerful, easy-going, and always a hard worker, even when the task was difficult. He gained hero status among his peers when, through hard work and perseverance, he conquered the “extra help” math group and moved up to the next level of 5th grade math! He is well-loved and remembered by his Starr family.

  46. Barb & Dave Blanchard says:

    We are so sorry for your loss. We did not know Ben personally; but I have worked with his Aunt Marilyn and Uncle Glen for many years. They are wonderful people and are very dear to my heart. May all of you find strength from your family’s love, and healing from God’s love. Our thoughts and prayers

Always smiling and a wave when riding by my house, like he enjoyed and took in the fresh air of the world without worries,, Always a pleasure to see him.

It was an honor and privilege to have known him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  51. Clint & Stacy Luttrell and kids says:

    Ben will be missed. He seemed to grow up so quickly. From a chubby cheeked kid to a handsome and very sweet young man. He was a great hunting buddy and will not be replaced.

  54. Angela Schmitt-Hoffman says:

    Oh Annette…as the tv played on silent this morning…I saw Ben’s picture… My heart is breaking for you and Dave…I’m sure I cannot even comprehend your grief. Please know that you are in so so many thoughts and prayers of people who’s lives are better just for meeting the Selbys. I read somewhere that
    “The stars in the sky are not stars at all, but tiny holes in the floor of Heaven for our loved ones to watch us by.”

  55. Elizabeth Beeman says:

    You were always so outgoing, talkative, and kind. You were in my driving group for driver’s ed. and you always made the long drives more entertaining. I will be thinking of you as we drive our last drive after school this wednesday. I will miss your bright, smiling face in the hallways and especially tomorrow in the car. Just the fact that I know you are in Heaven now with God gives me some peace and happiness, but I will always miss you here, on Earth, Ben. Thanks for the memories, I’ll keep them forever! ♥
    My heart and prayers go out to his family, I will always remember Ben and our class (2013) will always keep him in our hearts and thoughts and when graduation comes, he will be brought to the front of our minds. I promise we will honor Ben in all of our graduation ceremonies.
    Thanks, again, for everything. You helped bring a smile to my face and to many others. <3

  60. Judy Shumaker says:

    I am so very sorry for your loss, Mr. and Mrs. Selby. I work in the cafeteria at Plainwell High School and Ben would come through my line at lunch time quite often. When I heard about his accident on Monday, I checked his picture on my register and recognized him right away. He always had a smile on his face and such a nice personality. Please know that I am keeping you in my thoughts and sending my most sincere sympathy to you and your family. It is so sad to think of him being gone at such a very young age. He will be dearly missed at school. Our thoughts are with you.

  61. Kathy VanGoeye says:

    I remember Ben in the early elementary years at Starr and Annette always being there. You would be right at his side walking him to class and waiting for that bell to ring at the end of the day to see him again. He had such a great happy go lucky spirit and was loved so much by his parents with no doubt. Know that our family is praying for you during this difficult time and time to come. Kathy, Eric, Caleb, Cameron, and Cole

  62. Danene Gless says:

    Dear Dave & Annette,

    I was devastated to hear about Ben. My daughter (Katelyn) and Ben were both at Sandy Lash’s daycare. I also helped out at the Teen Center where Ben would come sometimes.
    What I remember most about Ben was his constant smile and loving personality. I could always tell when we would pick up at Lash’s at the same time how patient and loving you both were with him.
    I am so very sorry. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Danene & Kate

  63. Lee Whittle says:

    I never really knew Ben that well, I probably only talked to him a couple of times. But he was good friends with a friend of mine and that alone tells me how good of a guy he was. It is devastating what happened. I just want you to know that the family is in my prayers. God be with you all. Rest in peace Bud.

  64. Kara Gruber says:

    I didn’t have the chance to get to know Ben as I moved to WI a few months into the school year when he was a freshman but I remember seeing him in the hall at school and the thing I remember most is that he always seemed to have a smile on his face. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. RIP Ben. You will be greatly missed.

  65. Tammy (LaMie) Weidemann and Family says:

    My dearest “Annettie” and hubby David,
    I have just recently heard of the loss of your precious son Ben, and have to tell you that my heart is aching for you both, and your whole family. Reading these condolences sure tells me that your personality was very much reflected in your son. I wish I’d met him, but feel like I know him just by reflecting on what I remember of you. Clearly he was a delightful soul who enriched your lives. The resurection hope is a very powerful thing, and I hope you cling to it with all your heart. I love you little cousin, and at this time we are crying with you. Hopefully very soon, we will all cry tears of joy. I look forward to meeting your Son then.

  66. Jennifer Husar says:

    Dave & Annette,

    My son Tyler was friends with “Benny” (as I called him). He spent so much time at my home sharing his life with my boys, I considered him another one of my own. My heart has been heavy with grief since we heard of his passing. Benny was so good with my youngest, Jagger(who is 6). He just took him under his wing and made sure they all played together. I cannot even begin to know how you feel, please know that we grieve with you and we are praying for your family, have joy in the hope that we will see our benny again someday.
    Sending only our best
    Matt, Jennifer, Tyler, Nicky and Jagger Husar

  67. Nicole Hoover says:

    Even though i didnt know Ben personally, I knew his cousin Kevin. I know that he was a good person and being raised Catholic, I know he is in a better place now and that having him pass at this age was part of God’s plan. My grandmoher, whom I Ioved very dearly, passed away last Monday (March 6th, 2011), so I know what it is like to go through this. My family and I send our dearest condolences to your family.

    Yours Truely,
    Nicole. (:

  71. Judy Tice says:

    We are so very sorry and saddened for the loss of Ben and don’t really know what to say. He loved life, his parents, and dogs. We spent time fishing together at Swan Lake a couple of summers ago, he was sure he caught the most fish! We enjoyed having him over to visit at Mike’s house. He loved to tease and hang with the guys. He loved playing with Barney the beagle, and the other dogs. Ben had a lovely smile that would light up the room. Our sympathies and prayers to you. We will miss him.

    Judy Tice and Mike Lash.

  72. ron and karla princing says:

    For your loss we grieve. Ben wanted to learn and do everything with wood sometimes all at once. The list of projects to do was long. Not all was woodworking in the Shop. We talked of many things in the shop and to and from the carving meetings. Some what he called life stuff. He even tried to keep me up to date with new bands,saying i need to keep a open mind. We were making plans to start a business doing Ero mounts and walking sticks. But with it all came the COMEDY quick with a joke or a poke.”Yea Yea I know carve down hill sand sand sand’. What that? It was a Jake moment”
    Know that Ben loved you very much, family and friendship came first . He was well on his way to being a fine young Man

    Their will be a empty spot in my shop

    At the bottom of this page, you will find a condolence form. You will need to fill out some basic information prior to typing your message. (We will not share your e-mail address with anyone)

    Once you are finished, simply click the submit condolence button. Within 24 hours the condolence will be approved before it is published to the web site.

    We also provide a Tell-A-Friend feature located directly below these instructions. This form allows you to send the obituary to a friend. This is particularly helpful to someone who may live out of town.
