Ben Riojas Jr.

June 6, 1958 ~ January 4, 2021 (age 62)


Ben Riojas Jr. was called home to be with the Lord on January 4, 2021 at the age of 62. He was born in Nixon, Texas on June 6, 1958 to Ben Riojas Sr. and Janie Perez. 

Ben is preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Virginia Riojas and brother Martin Riojas.

He is survived by his wife, Brenda Guerrero-Riojas; his sons, Joseph Guerrero Sr. (Sara, Jaxon), Jacob Riojas, Robbie Riojas, Bryan Riojas and Michael Zuniga; his daughter, Vanessa Riojas; grandson, whom he raised as his own, Joseph Guerrero Jr.; his step-dad who raised him, Prudencio Zamora; sisters, Marylou Almaguer (Javier), Sylvia Arce (Tony), and Irene Guadarrama (David) as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins that he loved dearly.

Ben was the owner of Seguin Taxi Service where so many people came to know him. He enjoyed his business tremendously. When he wasn't working, he loved spending time at the gym working out with his buddies.  He had a passion for Jesus, and we are comforted in knowing that they are together now. He came to know the church members as his brothers and sisters.

Ben was a United States Marine who served his country proudly.  Also, those that knew him know that he was a die-hard Dallas Cowboy fan, no matter what. He just loved football in general.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at Palmer Mortuary Chapel from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. with a Prayer Service at 5:00 p.m.  Interment will follow at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at 9:15 a.m. and will remain for immediate family due to the capacity limitation at the committal shelter.

*Chapel capacity at the funeral is no more than 50 people at one time.
