Benjamin Robert Kirk Strong, 69 of Findlay, passed away unexpectedly September 19, 2023, at his home. Ben was born on August 30, 1954 to the late John Francis and Grace Kirk Strong in Oberlin, Ohio. He is survived by his two sisters, Ann Strong of Sewickley PA and Nancy Strong of Arlington MA, by his three nephews, Dan Hurowitz of Chicago IL, Mike Hurowitz and Noah Hurowitz of Brooklyn NY, and by many Strong and Kirk cousins. His family loved him dearly and take comfort in knowing that he is at peace.
Ben was a 1971 graduate of Oberlin High School and attended Ohio Northern University in Ada. He spent most of his adult life living in Findlay where he enjoyed working in his yard, following his favorite sports teams and visiting friends. He was a lifelong fan of the Cleveland Guardians and loved discussing the players and all aspects of baseball. Ben was also a great family historian given his excellent memory.
Ben had struggles related to mental illness which began in his early adulthood, but he found stability and dignity in his daily routine. He spoke on the phone daily with his sisters and cousins, and had a daily round of people he visited in the community. In addition, Ben received outstanding support from the Family Resource Center, as well as from the staff of 50 North which delivered daily meals.
A Memorial Service will be held in the Chapel of First Presbyterian Church, 2330 S. Main St., Findlay on Thursday, November 9, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. There will be a reception at the church with light refreshments following the service.
In lieu of flowers, memorials in Ben’s name are suggested to The Family Resource Center,1940 Carlin Street, Findlay, Ohio 45840.
