A very nice person, always cordial and friendly. Dale Booth

Prof. Nefkens was a great mentor. I owe my current success to him. He was also a generous person. He took me on a student, and paid me to work for him when I needed it the most. You will be missed profoundly Prof. Nefkens. Thank you for all your guidance and support. Sriteja Upadhyayula (Teja), Graduate Student, Texas A&M University

I have enjoyed working with Ben all these years. From the first day I met him, I knew that he was a true scholar, physicist, family man and friend. He continued guidence over the years kept me on the path to success in physics and in academics. I can truly say that he was an inspiration to me professionally and as a person.

Whenever I came to see Professor Nefkens in his office he always greeted me with a big smile and some humorous words. Despite his illness he was always friendly and cheerful and this is how I will remember him. I sincerely hope that he was able to maintain this mindset. Corinna Koehnenkamp, UCLA
