Bernd "Ben" Wilkerson

August 13, 1968 — September 7, 2020

Bernd “Ben” Wilkerson, 52, of Eustis, Florida passed away September 7, 2020. Born and raised in Eustis, Florida he graduated from Eustis High School in 1987 and lived most of his adult life in Umatilla, Florida. Our dad showed strength and love right up until his last days with us. He visited with friends and family, reminiscing, sharing, laughing and soaking in the wonderful memories and love that surrounded him. Ben was a hardworking, dedicated man who started his professional line growing up at European Car Service as a mechanic before transitioning to work at Eustis Amoco in 1995. He later started his own business known as Ben Wilkerson's Tractor and Concrete Services. He enjoyed spending time with his loving family, animals, riding in the woods and mudbogging, working on and fixing up 4 wheelers, dirt bikes and all things mechanical. Ben was always right there when a family member or friend was in need. He would show up with tools and equipment on hand ready to work.
