Ben was more than a friend, he was a father that tought to see the better side of some people, and would warn the worst of others. He He loved his kids very much, and would stand behind a friend that was in trouble. I am really going to miss seeing his smiling face and quirky attitude.

I would like to express my deepest sympathies to the friends and family of Ben Hurrell. It was just a couple of weeks ago I was talking to him about all of the problems of the world and of course Ben had a solution for them all. He will be missed by all of us at the Greene County Sheriff's Office. Ben was a hardworking, dedicated family man who could always be counted on.
