Ben Hazard Obituary, Death – We are sorry to inform you that Ben Hazard has passed away. He was a wonderful employee and friend in the workplace. He was instrumental in the development of DDI in many ways, and he will be missed. In 2012, Ben started working as the Cutting Die Process Coordinator for Dynamic Dies.
After then, he held the position of Divisional Manager of Cutting Dies, and after that, he moved on to Product Improvement. He was the embodiment of the DDI family’s core beliefs. He never appeared too busy to engage in conversation and was ready to offer his expertise in the subject matter with everyone who showed interest.
A couple of weeks ago, Ben was presented with the IADD Presidential Award. He was recognized for his leadership, support of IADD and the activities it organizes, and major contributions to both the association and the industry by receiving this honor. Ben had a reputation for being generous not only at DDI but also in the industry and in his local community as well.
For many years, Ben coached football for the Little League, assisting children in leading more active and healthy lifestyles. Ben’s life had such a deep impact on so many people’s lives that they hosted a benefit in his honor just one week before he passed away.
They came to offer Ben one final, heartfelt thank you for everything he had accomplished in his life, and they wanted to be there in person to do so. A significant number of Ben’s important influences were present. We are praying for Ben’s family as they go through this difficult time.
