Ben was born on December 21, 1955, in Smithfield, North Carolina. After obtaining his doctorate he went on to become a skilled Urological Surgeon in Greenville, NC. Dr. Hines assisted countless patients over his 20+ years of practice. His knowledge and attention to detail were a blessing to so many.

After retiring 15 years ago, he and his wife, Dale, enjoyed traveling on their boat to tropical destinations throughout the Caribbean. Salt life was part of their daily routine as they both loved to boat and explore. Ben greatly enjoyed scuba diving everywhere they traveled.

Ben will be fondly remembered as a loving husband, proud father to his 3 children, and charismatic brother.
