Ben spent his entire career in the oil and gas business, as owner and operator of Benco Oil and Gas. He was always an active participant in the cultural life of Fort Worth. He was a longtime director of the Kimbell Art Foundation, a director of Performing Arts and a member of several organizations including Young Presidents' Organization, Exchange Club, and a past president of the Steeplechase Club. He was also involved with the Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show, and Texas Business Hall of Fame Foundation. He was a longstanding member of Christ Chapel Bible Church.
Ben III loved people and with his infectious personality made friends and acquaintances wherever he went, and became a good and loyal friend to many. He had a clever, irrepressible and often self-deprecating sense of humor. He maintained a remarkably positive outlook no matter the circumstances. He had a keen sense of adventure that was expressed in countless ways, including a penchant for old cars, flying small planes, Canadian heli-skiing and traveling the world with friends and family. He was equally comfortable at the family ranch in East Texas or a black tie affair.
...
Nothing in this world brought him more joy than time with his sons, Benjamin and Coleman, who were named for the two most important and influential men in his life -- his father and maternal grandfather.

Ben J. Fortson, president of the Kimbell Art Foundation, announced today that the Foundation has acquired the first self-portrait by Paul Gauguin (1848-1903), the French Post-Impressionist artist whose remarkable life and work have been inspirational to virtually every great 20th-century artist, in particular Henri Matisse, whose L'Asie of 1946, in the Kimbell Art Museum, amounts to a homage to Gauguin's achievements.

In announcing the acquisition, Mrs. Fortson declared: "We have always wanted a late work by Monet to complement our early Pointe de la Hève, at Low Tide (of 1865), and we are confident the Matsukata/Rockefeller Weeping Willow, so prized by Monet himself, occupies a place of equal importance in the artist's illustrious career."
