Benjamin Bingman Obituary

Benjamin Stephen Bingman age 69, of Glouster, Ohio passed peacefully on March 30, 2024, at Riverside Methodist Hospital, Columbus, Ohio. Born in Nelsonville, Ohio on October 24, 1954.  Ben was the son of the late Gilbert Dennis and Marilyn June Vaughan Bingman. He married Mary Glenda Weaver on October 22, 1988, who survives.

A quiet, kind and gentle man, Ben had a great love of music playing the drums in his youth and spending many hours listening to his favorite Spotify selections of Whitney Houston, doo wop and music from the 50’ and 60’s, which gave him comfort during his last days in the hospital.  Later in life he found talent with writing poetry.

Ben began working as a young boy, delivering The Columbus Citizens Journal to neighborhood customers.  In high school he worked on weekends “pumping gas” at the first Certified Station in Glouster, which was located directly across the street from the home where he grew up.  As part of a large family, that meant he would miss Sunday dinners, but his mother would always have one of the younger siblings deliver a hot plate of food to him before the family would sit down to eat.  Ben was one of the first EMT’s in Glouster and later worked as a dispatcher for the Athens County Sheriff Department where he took an interest in finger printing. Ben retired from Miller Brands of Glouster (later Southeast Beverage) after 35 years of service.

In addition to his wife, Ben is survived by his three children, Stephen Bingman, Megan (John) Haas, both of Canal Winchester, Ohio; and Heidi Bingman (fiancé Daniel Huffman), of Blountville, TN. Siblings: Eric (Penny) Bingman – Amesville, Ohio; Beverley (Lloyd) Wyatt – Glouster, Ohio; Merrilea Riley – Glouster, Ohio; Anna (Pete) Oberhauser – Thornville, Ohio; Patricia June (PJ) (James) Conrath – Athens, Ohio; & Roger Bingman – Glouster, Ohio.  Grandchildren: Braydon & Delaney Haas of Canal Winchester; many nieces and nephews who he enjoyed teasing by pretending to be either Santa Clause or the Easter Bunny, and calling  to check on the children’s behavior before the “big day”; maternal aunt Vicki (Dennis) Davis and uncle Gary Vaughan both of Glouster, Ohio; sister and brother-in-law Linda and Ed Goss of Logan, Ohio; and special friends Rodney and Becky Humphrey,  childhood neighbor and friend Michael Mudrie all of Glouster, and Kathy and Bob Huffman, Blountville, TN.

Ben was preceded in death by his parents; his mother & father-in-law Glennel and Mary Weaver; sister & brothers-in-law Ruth Ann and James Ucker, and brother-in-law Rick Riley.
