Benjamin (Ben) Daniel Wanker

Benjamin “Ben” Daniel Wanker, 33, of Cambridge Springs, passed away unexpectedly after a brief illness on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 in his home.

 Born August 4, 1988 in Meadville, he was the beloved son of Daniel C. Wanker of Centerville and Sandra J. (Coulson) Conner of Conneaut Lake. He was a 2007 graduate of Maplewood and went to Vo-Tech for Mechanics.
