Benjamin David Horwitz passed away on June 22, 2017 at Anchorage Providence Hospital with his family and loved ones by his side. Ben's mother, Cathleen, passed on before him on December 29, 2011. Ben is survived by his father, Bob Horwitz of Anchorage, Alaska, brothers Zach and Jesse Horwitz of Anchorage, Alaska, sister Maribeth Horwitz and niece Violet Sky Horwitz both of Anchorage, Alaska, and brother Mack Horwitz of Seattle, Washington, plus many dear friends across the country whose lives he touched in his nearly 41 years.
Ben was born in Anchorage Providence Hospital on June 29, 1976 and raised mostly in Anchorage, Alaska. He graduated Service High School, class of 1995, and enlisted in the United States Air Force where he served with honor from 1995 to 1999. He proudly served two tours of duty, stationed in both Saudi Arabia and South Korea where among many other life tools, he learned to run fuel operations for military aircraft. After his service he moved to Seattle, Washington, and worked diligently to complete the prerequisite courses at North Seattle Community College required to enroll at the University of Washington. Once at the University of Washington, he found a passion for environmental protection and graduated from the University of Washington's College of the Environment in 2009. With his background in environmental protection and fuels, coupled with his love for the outdoors and federal service, he landed his dream job of a career at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 2008 where he served as fuels storage tank inspector for nine years. Ben approached his work with an enthusiasm, professionalism, and focus on mission. Ben was extremely proud of his federal service, both in the military and as a civilian.
Ben was a son, brother, a co-worker, and a close friend to many. His laughter was contagious and his storytelling about his adventures made you just honored to have a ticket to listen. Ben had a way of making everyone feel important and special. He loved spending time in the outdoors in the Pacific Northwest, or 'Alaska light' as he called it. He always enjoyed being in the moment and taking a pause for the cause. Ben shared his love of music, biking, and paddling with friends and family at his home in the Land's End neighborhood of Seattle. His spirit will forever light up our memories and warm our hearts.
