Mr. Hernandez, 22, died on Saturday, June 12, 2021 in Artesia.
A rosary is also scheduled for 5 pm Friday at Our Lady of Grace Church. Visitation will be at the church beginning at 4 pm Friday.
Benjamin was born on September 19, 1998 in Roswell, New Mexico; the son of Manuel Hernandez Jr. and Teresa Fierro Hernandez.
Those who knew Ben knew he was a shining light in this world. When you think of Ben, think of all of the good memories. All of the love and laughter. Remember that life is fragile and short and should be lived to the fullest with love and kindness.
Ben was funny, outgoing, and a very hard worker. He never complained about the work or asked when it was time to go home. He kept all who were around him laughing and smiling. Like the time he believed in his jiu jitsu training so much that he challenged Connor McGregor to a fight on Twitter. We all got a kick out of that one. Ben was a loving son, father, brother, grandson, fiance, cousin, and nephew. Bens stubborn, yet loving and caring personality will be missed by all who knew and loved him. A young life taken too soon but sure to be never forgotten. Rest high and easy Ben.
Survivors include his mother Teresa Hernandez; his father Manuel Hernandez Jr.; fiance Daya Solt; a son Felix Hernandez; a brother Matthew ; a sister Mariah White; grandparents Rosemary and Sammy Fierro; great-grandmother Margaret Aguilar
