Obituary for Ben Steven Upshaw

Ben Steven Upshaw, 68, passed away on May 31, 2018, in Ulysses, Kansas. Born December 5, 1949, Steve grew up in Ulysses. After high school, he joined the U.S. Marine Corp and served a tour of duty in Vietnam at the height of the war. Upon discharge, he completed his Bachelor’s at KU. He then worked overseas for several years in offshore oil drilling operations, before returning to attend law school at Washburn. Setting up his law practice in Ulysses, he prided himself as being “just a country lawyer”. He was elected Gant County Attorney and served several years in that role.

He is survived by wife, Linda McHenry of the home; daughter, Clancy Upshaw and son-in-law, Jared Stringham of Oklahoma City; step-daughters, Dana (Russell) Hasenbank of Plains, and Teri (Lynnie) Berschauer of Hutchinson; step-son, Troy (Kathleen) McHenry of Alpha, New Jersey, sister; Anne Armstrong; and nephew, Ben Staggs; as well as numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Ben and Mary Upshaw, and sister, Mary Kay Weinant.

After cremation, the family will have a private service per his request. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to Shriners Hospital for Children in care of Garnand Funeral Home, 405 W. Grant Ave, Ulysses, KS 67880.
