Ben Smit
Born 8 June 1965
Died 8 September 2015
Age 50
Occupation: Traffic controller

Loving husband, father, son, uncle and friend to many. Tragically taken from us whilst working as a traffic controller on Barry Parade Redbank Plains. Forever in our hearts.

His tragic and unexpected death caused by a careless driver has had a huge impact on all who knew him. Ben was the most safety conscientious person in the world. It is hard to believe that you went to work but never returned home.

We miss you and think about you continuously. Seeing traffic controllers everywhere on a daily basis makes us ask the question - Why you? Why Ben?

We will forever miss you and love you with all our hearts. RIP Ben xxx
