Benny A. Jaramillo, 77, of Farmington, New Mexico passed away on April 28, 2023. A celebration of life services will be held on Thursday, May 11, 2023, from 10:00 - 11:30 AM at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Farmington, New Mexico.

Benny was born in El Rito, New Mexico on February 12, 1946, to Jose Abel and Estellita (Hurtado) Jaramillo. He graduated from Chama High School, New Mexico. He was drafted into the Army and stationed in Germany in 1967 – 1969 to which he honorably served his country. Upon coming back to the United States, he met his wife, Doris, and they soon began a loving marriage which spanned 48 years of utter and complete devotion. Together they raised one son and two daughters, Mark, Marie, and Alyssa, with much love and support.

A genuinely self-made man, Benny worked at SO-LO Grocery store for many years. His work there was his life's passion and his spirit and tireless work ethic reflected. After retiring, he worked at Sunray Park & Casino and as a school cross guard, where he enjoyed his duties and made many friends. He always brought a big warm smile, a helping hand, a way of being kind. He was devoted to his family and friends and will always be in our hearts for the rest of our lives.

Benny is preceded by his parents Jose Abel & Estellita Jaramillo, brothers Epi Jaramillo, and Paul Jaramillo.

Benny is survived by his wife, Doris Jaramillo; son, Mark Jaramillo and his wife Michaela of Bloomfield, NM; daughter, Marie Florez and husband Ramon of Bloomfield, NM; daughter Alyssa Jaramillo of Albuquerque, NM; brothers, Abe Jaramillo (Vangie), Michael Jaramillo (Terri), Richard Jaramillo (Millie), sisters Nena Archuleta, Irene Martinez (Timmy), and Chon Black (Jim); sisters in law Mary Jaramillo, and Lori Jaramillo, grandchildren Mariah Jaramillo, Alexis Mitchell, Malachi Jaramillo, Deivin Mitchell, Matthew Jaramillo, and great grandchild Atticus Keith.
