Benjamin A. Brock

Benjamin A. Brock, 32, passed away unexpectedly at home on August 5, 2017. He was born May 18, 1985 in Colorado Springs, CO, but grew up with his parents Todd and Dora Brock and sister Lauren, in Covington, GA. Along with his parents and sister, he is survived by his wife, Shauna Brock; children, Isabella and Devin Brock; and his grandmothers Linda Phillips and Billy Hutchinson. He also left behind both lifelong and recent friends and teammates who will also dearly miss his laugh, his sense of humor, and his advice.

Often referred to by his wife as the “Book of Brock”, Ben was an avid learner who was full of knowledge on almost any subject. Ben was curious about so many things, so choosing simply one hobby or a career seemed impossible at times. He tried everything once and found joy in making music, snowboarding, hiking, software engineering, travel and hunting. If you had to choose only a handful of things that he enjoyed above everything else, Ben’s passions were fast cars, cooking, and fitness.
He was an Army combat veteran who eventually found his way into a career that he loved as an innovative software developer. Above all, he loved his family and his friends, fiercely loyal to every one of them and willing to help when they needed it. Ben was an incredible father to his children – teaching them lessons about working hard, pushing them to find their limits, helping them grow up to be kind people, and making sure they always ate their meat. He has left us too soon and will truly be missed by all who knew him.
