Obituary

Benny Gonzales, born November 16, 1932 passed into eternal life in the early morning of June 6, 2019. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. Benny grew up in Globe, Arizona and served in the Korean War. He married the love of his life, Esther Gaona, from Miami, Arizona on June 6, 1953 and they settled in Mesa. Benny graduated from Arizona State University and began working for Transamerica Title. He spent his career working for various title companies and retired soon after his wife retired. Benny and Esther had many friends and enjoyed their time traveling, attending ASU football games, playing cards and many, many dinners and parties together. Their most special time was spent attending church. Mom and dad never missed a Sunday Mass and were two of the first adorers of the St. Peregrine Shrine at Christ the King Catholic Church. Benny and Esther raised two daughters, Andria Dennett (John) and Geanna Wood (Ken). They especially took joy in their two granddaughters Alexandria Dennett and Jordan Dennett Adebayo (Seyi) and never missed their dance recitals, swimming meets and school events.

Our father loved his wife very much and missed her every day after her passing in 2010. He joined her again on their 66th wedding anniversary. His family’s sorrow is great but we are thankful that they are together again. Our father was a kind and gentle man with an infectious smile. He will be forever loved and missed by his family including his two sisters and many nephews and nieces.
Our family wishes to thank Patti Jones and her staff for the exceptional love and care they provided dad in the last year of his life.

A Catholic mass will be held at Christ the King Catholic Church, 1551 E Dana Ave, Mesa, AZ 85204 on Saturday, June 22 at 11:00 am with a viewing beginning at 10:00 am. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Christ the King Catholic School or the St. Peregrine Shrine.
