Ben Combs

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of a dear friend, Ben Combs on Thursday, January 13th. The MCN community offers its sincere condolences to Shirley Grupp and the entire Combs family.

It is not often that life brings us someone as special as Ben. I believe I can speak for all of us in saying our lives were made better by having known him.

Ben, the President of American Core Drilling and Sawing, was a staple at construction networking events. His easy smile, quick wit, and the ability to tell a joke meant he was continuously surrounded by a large following of laughing friends. A lifelong fan of all Baltimore sports, Ben was particularly fond of baseball and the Orioles.

No services are planned at this time. However, a celebration of Ben’s life is anticipated at a future date.
