Benjamin Manuel Rosales, Jr.

October 23, 1998 — April 11, 2021

Benjamin Manuel Rosales, Jr., known to family and friends as “Junior,” was born on October 23, 1998, in Show Low, Arizona to Benjamin and Martha Rosales. He was taken from us, unexpectedly, way too soon on April 11, 2021.

Ben grew up in Snowflake, Arizona surrounded by his sisters and cousins who he considered friends and siblings. He attended Snowflake schools and graduated from Snowflake High School in 2017. He then went to work for Arizona Motors in Snowflake. He continued his education by attending training courses through his job.

He became a highly skilled automotive technician and excelled at his job. He was always using his skills to help his family and friends. Ben loved to hunt, fish and play softball with his dad. Ben also loved fast cars, dancing, grilling, golfing and being with his friends. He also loved spending time with his partner in crime his sister and best friend Anjelica.

His greatest love was born on December 24, 2019, his daughter Kailani Mae Rosales, or as he lovingly called her, “Willis.” He was the most loving and caring father. He adored his baby girl. Ben was the life of the party, he knew how to bring people together and always make them laugh. Everyone that met him became his friend. He was the best uncle and nino to his two nieces, Aaliyah and Aleyna.

He was incredibly smart, intelligent and motivated. He accomplished every goal he set his mind to. Most of all he touched the lives of everyone he met, young and old. He will be loved, missed and remembered by many, but most of all by his family who will never be whole again until we see him again.

Ben is survived by his loving parents, Benjamin Rosales and Martha Rosales; his siblings, Adrianna (Eduardo Lujan), Anjelica Rosales (Sergio Rodriguez); his daughter, Kailani Mae Rosales and his nieces, Aaliyah Lujan and Aleyna Lujan; he is also survived by his many cousins, uncles, aunts and his grandparents, Raul and Trinidad Anchondo and grandmother, Guadalupe Rosales Garcia.

He was preceded in death by his grandpa, Benjamin Rosales Chavez and his nino, Juan Antonio Ventura.

The Mass of Christian Burial will be held 11:00 A.M. Monday, April 19, 2021, at the Our Lady of The Snow Catholic Church, 1655 Main Street, Snowflake with the interment to follow at the Reed Hatch Memorial Cemetery in Taylor, Arizona.
