Benjamin Cohen

May 19, 1923 - April 13, 2021

Benjamin Wolf Cohen of Mt. Laurel, NJ, passed away peacefully on April 13, 2021. Husband of the late Shirley Cohen. Father of Dr. David (Mary Lou) Cohen and Bruce Cohen. Grandfather of Michael (Erika), Lauren (Terry), Emily, Rachael and Shayna. Great Grandfather of Annabelle, Jack, Victoria and Dylan. Ben was a renowned artist who loved to mentor and teach. He was well-known for his dedication to the Willingboro Art Alliance, which has named a room “The Ben Cohen Room for the Arts”. Ben loved to sketch and claimed it was “an addiction”. In his downtime, he would sketch friends, family, events, and places; hundreds of people have received one of these sketches by Ben. He always stayed very busy, and kept his hand-written calendar packed with commitments. Even though he wrote more notes and lists than anyone could imagine, he put tons of effort into keeping up with technology; you would often see Ben active on his Facebook page, trying to learn more about his iPhone, and joining Zoom calls. Ben was a decorated WWII veteran, an active member of Temple Sinai, and a friend to all. Contributions in his memory may be made to the Willingboro Art Alliance, or the American Cancer Society,
