This was somewhat buried in the other thread so I thought I would post it separately, make it easier for those who need the time/place/directions: From Ray (Stingray):
Ben Shipman passed away on Wednesday night May 2 ,2007. Ben died in his sleep. He went peacefully. Ben was a very special friend. I’m honored that I got to be his surfing partner and surfboard building buddy. Ben has been fighting cancer for 15 years and through it all he never gave up. Services for Ben were held today in Old Town San Diego. Ben’s ashes will be spread out into the ocean. We are currently planning a paddle out for Ben Shipman. Everyone is welcome.
