Lifelong Alaska resident, Benjamin Edgar Kruse, 30, died Friday, June 6, 2014 due to injuries suffered in an ATV accident. 
Funeral and graveside services were held Thursday and Friday of last week. He was laid to rest at the Spruce Grove Memorial Park in Kasilof, Alaska. 
Ben Kruse was born Sept. 20, 1983 to James and Linda Kruse in Soldotna. He loved playing basketball, snowmachining, ATV riding, hiking and spending time at the beach with his family. 
The family wrote, “For Ben, life was grounded in his love of God and family, especially his two sons: Karver and Parker. Those who knew Ben knew a man whose physical stature was exceeded only by the greatness of his heart. He was a selfless provider to his wife, Candace, and their sons. His generosity was truly unparalleled. Benjamin Kruse was a devoted father, husband, a loving son, a loyal and amazing brother, and a caring nephew, uncle, grandson and cousin.
His sense of humor and ready smile brightened every situation. 
His unwavering faith in God saw him through life’s many testing grounds.
“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet My unfailing love for you will not be shaken, nor My covenant of peace be removed, saith the Lord.” (Isaiah 54:10).
He is survived by parents James and Linda Kruse; sons, Karver and Parker Kruse; wife, Candace Kruse; brothers, Jered (Alicia) Kruse, Corey (Amy) Kruse; sister, Sharon Kruse, brothers, Joshua Kruse and Joseph (Amy) Kruse and an entire tribe of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
