Otte, Benjamin James
The Guest Book is expired.
Our BJ passed away February 8, 2013. He was thirty-five years old, and he spent every one of those years being the best brother and son anyone could ever want. Caring, gentle, patient, and wise, BJ led an extraordinary life that most cannot understand. If you were one of the lucky people who got to be close to him, you know how he touched our lives in a positive way. He made us rich with laughter, love, and tenderness. We are grateful to have had the honor to know him, and we are sure he is running fast, jumping high, and laughing out loud right now. After his birth in Denver, Colorado, he and his family lived in El Paso, Texas, for twenty years, and he relocated to Phoenix with his parents in 1998. His parents Jim and Nancy, brother and wife David and Jessica, and niece Inez survive him. We love you, BJ! Arrangements entrusted to Messinger Fountain Hills Mortuary.
