After a long and valiant fight against colon cancer, Ben Talley, 46, of Hickory, devoted husband, father and son, passed away on April 4, 2016. He was born in Houston, Texas to James and Laura Talley on March 26, 1970. He was a graduate of Jasper High School and went on to the honors college at the University of Houston. He obtained his Masters degree from the University of Texas-Brownsville. After trying out a variety of professions, he landed in IT where he was able to continue his quest for knowledge and 'something new and different'. From organizing and developing IT at Longview High School to working at the Region 7 Service Center and Kilgore College, Ben found an avenue to spark his intellect. As the CIO at Lenoir Rhyne University, he was able to lead by example and earned the respect of many in the profession. He valued his co-workers not only as colleagues but as friends.

He loved the outdoors; especially hiking and climbing mountains. After his illness prohibited much of that, he began to enjoy marksmanship. His wit and humor was unmatched and will be missed.
