Always In Our Thoughts, Forever In Our Hearts
Benjamin Richard Hoops
June 22, 1973 - October 16, 2017
Our beloved Benjamin Richard Hoops lived a fabulous existence, squeezing several lifetimes of joyful adventure into the 44 short years he was granted here on earth. An avid outdoorsman, Ben spent time in many beautiful places, but a large part of his heart resided on Hurricane Island, in the Fox Islands archipelago, off the coast of Rockland, Maine. He passed away peacefully in the company of loving family and friends on October 16, 2017. Though his adventurous life was cut short, it was filled with laughter, profound experiential education, and a network of meaningful relationships with friends and colleagues.
