Galen John Benson - January 21st, 1949 – November 3rd, 2017. A child of God. Loving husband, father, grandpa, son, and brother. Galen grew up in Northeastern Nebraska on the family farm. Galen was a natural teacher and craftsman. He was a generous friend who freely shared his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ with all he met.
