Not sure what to say?

I have such fond memories of Uncle Benny, one of my earliest mentors encouraging me to go on to college. Always calling me "lil stinker." My zest for community involvement has to be partially credited to exposure from seeing him so involved. I am just learning of his passing today and extremely saddened to have missed paying tribute by attending his services. My sincere condolences to Aunt Molly, and cousins Linda, Virginia etc. RIP Uncle.

Benny was an inspiration to all of us young guys growing up in Carlsbad in the 1950's. He was a person we all looked up to and admired. He was always there with a helping hand. He was a good man who always instilled in us to do our best. He was a good friend to the Martinez family and will be missed. My condolences to the Acuna family.
P.S. I'll always remember in Little League his Lion teams always beating our Rotary clubs (sorry Nacho).

Extending sympathies to the family of Ben Acuna. As former Carlsbad residents we remember the Acuna family well. Love and Blessings, Carrol & Patricia (Jones) Guest

As a kid growing up in Carlsbad,everything I learned about baseball was from Benny Acuna and Nacho Herrera and was able to pass in on to my kids. He as a good man and coach. My condolences to all his family.

Salute from a fellow veteran and blessings to the family.
