Benjamin Scott Fairbanks, born September 4, 2019. At 3:52 PM! Benjamin was a son, grandson, nephew, and a brother! He made fifth generation. He was the youngest of four. He enjoyed playing with his brother, Alfred. And his sisters, Ezra and Arleighauna. Those are his best friends! He obviously loved playing with his toys. Especially cars! He loved food and boobie more than anything. The best thing he gave was love. He knew how to show love at 20 months old. His smile & love are contagious. He touched a lot of his relatives' hearts! For at the age he was at, he was learning a lot. He loved both his parents so much, Heather Fineday and Seth Fairbanks. He always wanted to be by their sides. Being at a park or being outside with his siblings was one of the things he enjoyed. Cocomelon and YouTube was something he loved. Music also, he knew how to dance. Ben loved many. Everyone loved this baby boy! We ain't gonna remember him by what happened, we're gonna remember by all the good memories we had with him. He's gonna be missed and remembered!
