Vincent "Ben" Flores 69, of Washburn, WI passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, April 26th, around 2:20 a.m. at Essentia St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth, MN.

Ben was born in Maina, Guam to Joaquin and Louisa Flores. He was raised there along with his sisters. In his life, he was known for many roles. He was a hard-working man and a prankster. For many who had the chance of meeting him along the way, many would say he was always ready to be the life of the scene at any given occasion. Ben always wanted to make people laugh. He could be stubborn and tough on the outside, but don’t let that fool you! He had a loving soul on the inside.

In his free time you could always catch him outside fishing, working in the garage, and taking long rides on his motorcycle. 

Preceded in death by his parents and brother in laws, Richard Saville and Frank J. Matanane.

Ben is survived by his 6 children, Jason (Rhonda) Flores, Ami Flores, Benjamin (Sarah) Flores, Kari (Bill) Flores, Niki Flores, Ryan (Caitlyn) Flores.
