In Memoriam – Ben Davidson

1976 – 2020

We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Ben Davidson on August 15th, who had a heart attack at age 44.

As an outstanding, notable artist with a very promising career, this was devastating to his family and community.  He leaves behind his wife Tawni and his five children; Gavin, Dustin, Jayde, Juno and Jasper as well as his father, Haida artist Robert Davidson and wife Terri-Lynn, his mother Susan and sister Sara.

Ben’s generosity of his time and Raven spirit is a great loss, and he was always one to tell a great story and make others laugh.

His contribution to the arts and mentorship of other artists in sharing his knowledge of Haida culture will be greatly missed.

Although he specialized in three-dimensional art, Ben was equally proficient in creating beautiful works in jewelry and serigraphy.
