bennydominguezBenny Jose Dominguez, 24, a resident of Faywood, NM entered eternal rest Thursday, November 18, 2021 at his residence surrounded by his family. He was born January 15, 1997 in Silver City, NM to Benny A. Dominguez and Erica Carrillo.

BJ loved to fish and spend time with family and friends. He worked with his dad and brother daily. He was always ready to lend a hand when family and friends asked for it. He knew he was loved unconditionally by his parents and siblings. He would always joking tell his siblings “He was the favorite” and then give them a huge grin. There are no words that could describe the significance his loss will have to his family and friends.

He is survived by his parents, Benny and Erica Dominguez of the family home; one brother, Tobias Dominguez of San Juan; two sisters, Felicia and Bianca Dominguez of San Juan; one nephew, Elias Leandro Benavidez; paternal grandfather, Leandro Dominguez Sr., and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

Visitation will be Tuesday, November 30 from 5-6pm at Terrazas Funeral Chapels with the holy rosary being recited by Deacon Art Gutierrez to commence at 6pm. The funeral mass will be celebrated on Wednesday, December 1 at 10am at Hurley Infant Jesus Shrine with Father Casmir Anozie officiating. Concluding service and interment will follow at San Juan Cemetery. Pallbearers are Colton Hand, Colton McBride, Tobias Dominguez, Leandro Dominguez Jr., Randy James Dominguez, Josh Shields, and Westley Lamb.
