Heartbroken over the loss of our brother Ben Roche. He was a beautiful soul who left an indelible impression on all who knew him. Thankfully, he left us with enough memories and laughs to last five lifetimes. - Moke Hill
Ben's incredible talent spanned many media. This is a short film he animated for Public Radio's Joe Frank. It really shows the depth of Ben's talent using simple bock text.
"He could run like the wind blows..."
Ben was fast.
He won the 100 meter districts his senior year of high school and was a member of the 4x100 meter team that competed in the State Finals.
His speed on the gridiron was just as fast. "He could go all the way".
