Jose Benjamin Trujillo Obituary
Trujillo, Jose Benjamin "Ben"





Ben, age 74, beloved husband, father, grandpa, great-grand pa, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and friend was embraced by God and taken to new life, Tuesday, February 9, 2016.

He was preceded in death by his children, Yvonne and Robert; mother Amelia; and brother Alfonso. Survivors include wife Inez; sons Don and Tim (Angela); grandchildren Michael Trujillo, JD, Tony and Nikki Giacci, Angelique, Arianna and Damian Trujillo; and numerous great-grandchildren; brother Leroy Gallegos; sisters Lucy (Bert) Martinez, Stella and Pauline Gallegos.

He was born May 3, 1941 in the beautiful Espanola Valley. In 1960 he moved with his new

bride to Southern California to start a new life, family and career. He became a barber and had a couple of shops before his family grew large enough to necessitate a move. In 1973 the Trujillo family moved to Albuquerque and he opened Mr. Ben's Barber Shop for over 40 years. Ben enjoyed camping, fishing and going to Laughlin, Nevada with family and friends.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at New Beginnings Church, 3601 Montgomery NE, NW corner of Montgomery and Carlisle. The family greatly appreciates and would like to thank all extended family, friends and many customers for all the support, prayers and love.
