Ben Chisolm – Dad, Thank you for being a hero and mentor to us kids and to so many others. We will miss seeing you sitting in “The Gun Shop” and “Jet Auto Lube” which you ran for 20 years and most recently taking care of everyone at “Little Cypress Lube” here in Orange.

We will look after mom, Jeanette, with whom you shared 50 wonderful years. All of us, your children, (Lori, Julie Theresa & Al, Wendy & Billy, Lisa, Chris & LeAnn) will cherish the wisdom you gave us.

The 12 grandchildren (David, Christy, Julie, Travis, Amber, Samantha, Shelby, April, Nakala, Derek, Jessica & Tyler) and 14 great-grandchildren (Holly, Carley, Garald, Amie, Adam, Christopher, Elijah, Jasmine, Autumn, Aurora, Bryson, Harmony, Camden & Cale) you leave behind will always remember the time you spent with them whether it was riding on the bike, fishing, shooting at the gun range, working at the shop, playing with Sammy, or just strolling in the little red wagon.

At 12:25 a.m. on Saturday, June 18, you went home to the waiting hands of our Lord and Savior; but we know that one day we will see you again. We love you Dad.

A memorial service will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, June 24, at Community Christian Church in Orange.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to the American Cancer Society in honor of Ben.
