Benito Leyva, 91, of Calexico, CA went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, January 27, 2021. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Maria Leyva and son, Jesus Leyva. He is survived by his children, Guadalupe Leyva Lopez, Adam Leyva, Ana Leyva Arellano, Francisco Leyva, Eva Leyva Valenzuela and Benito Jr. Leyva; wife, Blanca Leyva; as well as many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren and great-great-great-grandchildren, 5 generations! We lost a very special person in our lives, it hurts to say goodbye, but we know he is in a better place and no longer in pain. Thank you Lord for blessing him with 91 long years. He will be missed. There will be no services.
