Benny Kinder, age 76, passed away at 4:03 PM on Sunday Dec. 20, 2020 after a 3+ years battle against colon cancer. He was born on November 5, 1944 in Flixton, England to William and Mabel (Wharton) Kinder. Ben and his mother traveled to the United States in 1946 aboard the Queen Mary along with other war brides and their children. Ben retired after 50 years working for Johns Manville as a mechanic. As an avid collector, he very much enjoyed the hunt for a great deal. Ben loved his friends, family and a lifetime of various pets. He will be sadly missed by his loving wife of 33 years Wendi (Hesselschwardt) Kinder, his only child, daughter Jennifer (John) Moser, Three grandsons Johnny, Jacob and Josh Moser - Defiance, Ohio and his sister Andrea (Andie) Kinder of Ft. Wayne, Indiana.
Per Ben's wishes, there will be no services. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date for family.
Cards of condolences can be sent to the family. If considering a memorial, please send to Defiance Hospice or The Defiance Animal Shelter in Ben's name.
