He enjoyed coming to visit family at Groesbeck and loved the cowboy lifestyle.  He enjoyed going with his Cordova cousins, with Pedro on his truck, with Tim and Frank to the cattle ranch, and visiting with all his family at the Turrubiarte and Cordova family gatherings.   He had an especially close friendship with his uncle Ellis Turrubiarte. Benny was preceded in death by his father, Abraham Cordova and cousins and other family members. He is survived by his mother, Esperanza Cordova of Dallas; sister, Dora Beck; sister, Emma Cordova; sister, Sophia Cordova; sister, Norma Cordova; brother, Stephen Cordova; and sister, Velma Cordova, all of Dallas.  Also, he is survived by nephews and niece, Anthony and wife Aubrie Beck; Joel and Daniel Beck; and Salina Cordova; and great nephews and niece, Vincent James Beck, Damon Joel Beck and Liberty Quinn Beck; as well as aunts, uncles, many cousins and other extended family.
