He graduated from UCLA with a degree in Accounting and worked for Douglas Aircraft and later as a Financial Consultant for many companies across the United States. Ben loved to travel, his last few years, with his daughter Leslie Clark and her husband Dennis. He especially enjoyed their trip to Washington DC and he loved their many trips to Edisto Beach. Ben was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 62 years, Carol Lea Weinstein. Survivors include a daughter and son-in-law, Leslie and Dennis Clark, North Augusta, SC; a son, Lauren Weinstein, Woodland Hills, CA; a granddaughter, Linda Musgrove (Nathan) two bonus grandchildren, Michael Clark (Amelia) and Katherine Green (Tom); three great-granddaughters, Gwendolyn, Grace, and Lydia Joy Musgrove; four bonus great-grandchildren, Sereana and Arianna Green and Liam and Toby Clark; a niece, Lorraine Weinstein, and two nephews, Greg Kourilsky (Marilyn) and Saul Weinstein.
