He was born February 28, 2004, the son of Larry G. Hines, Jr. and Teena M. Culver-Lovett.

Ben was loved by everyone who ever knew him and has changed us all forever. He would want us to live a good life being helpful and kind.
He is a hero who will live on in a different way now. He will help many others to live with the generous donation of his organs, eyes, and tissue.
