Beloved husband of Melanie May (nee: Brest). Cherished son of Ramona (nee: Conley) and the late Peter Charles May. Loving brother of Tara Campbell, Julie MacFarlane and Dakota Douglas May.

Benjamin was born in London, Ontario on June 16th, 1982, grew up in Schenectady, New York, moved back to London as a teenager and eventually grew to his adulthood, moved out west, married his wife Melanie and settled in Burnaby, B.C. At a very young age Benjamin would validate any and everyone he met. He would not let them go without a compliment of sort. Whether it was their hat, face, shoes, or a book in hand, he liked them to feel noticed. Ben also had a love for music, anything, anytime, any space. Benjamin loved his family, he embraced his nieces and nephews like no others. He touched so many people, friends, and family with his gentleman manner. He was truly loved and will always be missed.
A graveside service celebrating Benjamin’s life will be held at Woodland Cemetery, 493 Springbank Drive, London, on Thursday, June 16th, 2022 at 1pm.
