Obituary for Bonifacio Alvarado

Bonifacio “Benny” Medina Alvarado was born on July 28, 1938 and after bravely battling illness for the past three years, God called him home on February 4, 2018. He was 79 years old. He is survived by his devoted wife Lynn, four children, eight grand-children, and four great grand-children. Born in Santa Rita, New Mexico, he was one of seven children and now is only survived by his brother Robert in Silver City, NM. Benny came to California at age 19, and worked in construction at Stanford Hospital. Shortly after, he worked as a custodian for MVSD and retired after 33 years. Benny was loved by all who knew him because of his gentle demeanor, kind heart, and vibrant spirit. His unique style, humor, and view of life, brought smiles and laughter to those around him. He passionately loved his family, friends, and enjoyed yearly trips to Hawaii, hanging out with his friends at the Tied House in MV, colorful clothes, and cooking for his loved ones. Especially his salsa. Sadly, we have lost a loved one, but we know that we will see him again. To honor Benny’s memory, we ask that you kindly donate to the Humane Society of Silicon Valley because he loved his pets, or to the El Camino Hospital Foundation because the care he received the past three years was of great comfort to Benny and his family.
