Ben Rojo was born and raised in Marfa, Texas to Ruperto and Marcela Rojo on March 6, 1935. He married Corine Luna on May 14, 1955, and shared 68 years of marriage with her. Shortly after their marriage, Ben and Corine moved to Fort Stockton, Texas and established their family there. Ben was a fantastic provider and had a reputation for being extremely hard-working and dependable, his first job came at the age of 14 selling tortillas from his mother’s kitchen. Most people will remember the exceptional service he provided while working at Fraley Butane from 1967-1998, however, he never wanted his family to lack for anything so he often took on other work to provide the best life he could for his family. Ben’s family was the most important part of his life, he always enjoyed providing life experiences to his family by taking them camping and on vacations. Upon retirement, he rediscovered his love for the outdoors, including carefully maintaining his yard and cooking, much to his family’s delight.
