Bennie was a proud veteran serving in the Korean War for the U.S. Army. He served fighting in combat in Korea. After returning from the war, Bennie married Marie Sophie Martinez of Pecos, New Mexico in 1954 and made their home in Galisteo, New Mexico.

Bennie was preceded in death by his cherished wife, Marie Sophie, married for 54 years; and his daughter Deborah Ann Anaya, whom he adored. He is survived by his son, Bennie Anaya and finance Felicia Valdez; daughter Hazel Marie Hill; and Meghan Gabrielle Jaramillo, his precious only grandchild and her father, Alex S. Jaramillo.

Bennie worked 40 years in the dairy industry for Foremost Dairies in Santa Fe, Bordens and Prices Valley Gold in Albuquerque, and retired in 1996.

Bennie spent his last years at Palmilla Senior Living where he loved the staff and the many friends he made. He was a devote prayer warrior and spent most of his days in prayer and solitude devoted to Our Lady of Guadalupe praying the rosary.
