Obituary for Benjamin Jearl Carpenter

Benjamin Jearl Carpenter was born on March 12, 1960 in Pontiac, Michigan to Patrick and Pauline Carpenter. He passed away on October 18, 2019 in Walled Lake, Michigan at the age of 59.

Jerry, as he was known by his family growing up, was raised in Walled Lake. He met the love of his life, Bonnie Asch and in 1980 they married. Bonnie and Ben, as she called him, later settled in Walled Lake to raise their family. Mr. Carpenter provided for his family through his work with the Ford Motor Company. In 1993 he began working at the Wixom Assembly plant. He later transferred to Dearborn following the closure of the Wixom Plant. For 26 years he was a valued and dedicated member of the Ford Motor family.

In his free time Ben fostered his love for cars. Known for his mechanical skills, he loved to fix up cars. In his youth he was the mechanic for his brother Ken while he raced figure eight cars. Many weekends were spent with his sons and family at auto shows and tinkering with cars. Above all else Ben was a devoted family man. His grandson Dustin was the light of his life. He was a kind, loving and generous person who will be deeply missed by all those who were lucky enough to have known him.

Benjamin Jerry Carpenter was the loving husband of Bonnie for 39 years. Cherished father of Jim and Mike. Proud "Bumpa" of Dustin and the late Christina. Beloved son of Pauline and the late Patrick. Dear brother of Kenneth (Rhonda) Carpenter, Patricia Ragan and Dorothy Balma. He is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.
