Ben is preceded in death by his parents, Phillip and Fita Olguin; sisters, Rosie Armendariz, and Lucy Olguin; brothers, Felix Olguin, and Gabriel Olguin; as well as his daughter, Jerri; and grandson, Erick, all of which are from California.

Ben was an avid golfer. He was a member of the Tierra Del Sol golf course, the NM Tech Golf Course, and the Albuquerque Seniors Golf Course, all of which he thoroughly enjoyed.

He often frequented the Del Rio Senior Center and was a member of the Rio Grande Valley Band. He loved music. So much so that he shared it widely. He’d play for the local senior centers in Belen, Los Lunas, Albuquerque and at the Belen Meadows Senior Center.
