Benjamin “Ben” William Schacht

May 9, 1997 – Oct. 25, 2021

Benjamin “Ben” William Schacht, 24, of Indianapolis, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Oct. 25, 2021.

He was born May 9, 1997 to David and Susan (Cramer) Schacht.

Mr. Schact was a 2016 graduate of Hamilton Southeastern High School in Fishers, Ind. He also attended University High School in Carmel, Ind. He received his Software Developer Certification in 2019 from The Kenzie Academy in Indianapolis, Ind. He was most recently providing technology, marketing technology and operational support for a retirement planning firm in Carmel, Ind. Mr. Schacht thrived in his job and enjoyed his coworkers.

In addition to his job, he enjoyed his unique music, acquiring collectible fashion pieces, analyzing crypto currency trends, all types of animals and reading books about prominent philosophical, religious and political figures in history. He was a complicated, brilliant, kind, funny and gentle soul.

We miss Ben immensely, but we are deeply comforted knowing that he is now happy and at peace; free of the struggle of addiction. For those who are experiencing the heartache of mental health issues and addiction, we offer love, peace and healing.

Survivors include his younger sister, Sydney Schacht; his grandmother, Donna Schacht; many aunts, uncles and extended family members.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Jerry Schacht, Sr. and Marilyn Jean and Donald William Cramer.

The Schacht family has entrusted Randall and Roberts Funeral Home with Mr. Schacht’s care. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date, yet to be determined.

If you would like to do something in honor of Mr. Schacht, we simply ask for acts of kindness. Kindness and love are the best gifts we can give to one another. The comfort and peace that we have experienced from the love given by our family and friends has been a beautiful gift.
