Benjamin "Ben" Atwood

Date of Death: September 30, 2016

Date of Birth: July 20, 1955


TOSHAM – Benjamin "Ben" G. Atwood, 61, of Topsham lost his battle with cancer September 30, 2016. Ben was known throughout the community and spent his life living it. Ben did what made him happy with many stories to tell. Ben was a fun loving, no nonsense type of guy who told it like it was, and if you didn't want to hear it then don't ask!

Ben was an avid hunter and a top notch carpenter.

The women in his life were numerous and he loved them all, especially his mom, Suzanne Atwood, and his little Atwood ladies, Maizy, Izzy, Zoey, and Emma; they were his ray of sunshine!

He worked beside his dad, Ronald Atwood (deceased) in the family owned business building kitchens, boats, and roller skating rinks to name a few.

He took extreme pride in his two nephews, Ryan and Matthew Atwood, trying not to teach them all of his bad habits, but he did enjoy teaching them wood working, hunting, and fishing.

He could not wait for October every year when he and his brother Blaine would hunt day in and out looking for geese and ducks in Merry Meeting Bay.

Ben is survived by his mom, Suzanne; his brothers, Blaine and spouse Jayne, Randy and spouse Maryjo; his two nephews, Ryan and spouse Audrey, Matthew and spouse Lindsey; his four nieces, Maizy, Izzy, Zoey, and Emma; his partner, Kim Holbrook; Uncle Larry; and two great friends, Red and Duckman, along with several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

You left some empty hearts here, Benjamin; the memories of your stories, your goofy laugh and spirit will help us fill the void.

Everyone that remembers him is asked to celebrate Ben's life in their own way, raising a glass of their favorite drink would be quite appropriate.

The family would like to extend a special Thank You to those of you who helped us through these sad times – The Atwood Family.
