Devil Hills - Ben Olaizola passed away peacefully on March 6th at the
age of eighty-four years old. Ben is survived by his wife Ruth, as well
as a large extended family.
Ben had a eventful life and was
particularly proud of his accomplishments in the Military during the
Korean War. He worked as a ticket agent for Metro North in New York
until his retirement. Ben and his wife, Ruth, enjoyed their vacations
at the Outer Banks and eventually became residents of Kill Devil Hills
over twenty years ago. Ben enjoyed singing, and was a member of a
singing group, performing and recording songs in the early 1960s. He
also was an avid sports fan, enjoyed classic movies, and the latest
"new thing." He loved animals, and could always be relied on to provide
a good joke or two at any given time.
