Obituary

Benjamin Herbert “Ben” Kraft, age 34, of Coral Springs, Florida passed away Thursday, June 17, 2021.

He was born March 17, 1987, in Aurora, Illinois the son of John and Andrea (McDermott) Kraft.

Ben always knew how to make people laugh. He had a great sense of humor, was extremely funny, and was fearless in nature. His favorite pastime was spending time with his family, friends, and his dogs. He especially valued the time he spent with his mother-- their relationship was extraordinarily special and unique.

He is survived by his loving partner of 9 years, John Rulka of Coral Springs, Florida; father John Kraft of Batavia; siblings Kelly of Omaha, Nebraska, and Joseph Kraft of Chicago; and many dear aunts, uncles, relatives, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his mother Andrea, who passed away in 2019, paternal grandparents Karl & Violet Kraft, and maternal grandparents Herbert & Dorris McDermott.
