About Ben Lynch

Ben embodied various roles – an athlete, friend, son, brother, husband, father, and uncle. He was a hardworking, hands-on individual who embraced challenges with a “ride-or-die” attitude. Excelling in activities that involved both his feet on a board and tools in his hands, Ben hailed from Kremmling, CO, where his adventurous spirit was nurtured by his mother, Cynthia Lynch.

Encouraged to be bold and go big in life, Ben pursued a myriad of childhood interests, including snowboarding, dirt biking, Boy Scouts, ice hockey, soccer, drum playing, bagpiping, and rattlesnake hunting.

His brothers, Allan and Ehren Miller, instilled toughness, respect, and a sense of brotherhood in him. Leaving home at 16 to travel with Airblaster and K2, Ben experienced the deepest snow during his adventures.

Despite his youth, he excelled in inspiring others, filmmaking, exploring, carving, and performing jaw-dropping backflips that became known as the famous “Ben-Lynch-lay-one-out.” While the mountains held a special place in his heart, Ben always rooted himself in Grand County and Grand Lake.

Returning home, he worked alongside his father, Craig Schmuck, at Native Sons. Together, they operated heavy equipment, delved into the earth, stacked wood, and kept the freezer stocked with meat. In the small town where winters separated the strong from the weak, Craig not only taught Ben how to make a living but also how to love.

Ben’s memorial service will be held on May 22, 2021, at 2 PM MDT, Grand Lake Town Park, Grand Lake, Colorado 80447. Everyone is welcome.
