Benito was born on March 21st, 1937 in Naco Sonora, Mexico. He grew up in a humble household where at a very young age he would help his father with farming and herding, but always found time to play. He began a career working with The Pacific Railroad in Mexico. His work ethic and desire to take care of his family led him to immigrate to the United States, where he could provide a better quality of life for his beloved family. After immigrating he worked several jobs. Through his hard work and dedication, he started and grew a successful business providing many years of quality service.

Our beloved father shared his treasured memories with such detail and enthusiasm as if he was reliving those fond memories even up until his final days. He leaves us with our own treasured memories of him. He brought so much happiness to all who knew him. He was an exemplary, a role model and a father figure to many. A wonderful husband to his wife (married 63 years), and an amazing father and grandfather. We will miss him dearly; he will never be forgotten.
