Ben Valdez passed away November 18, 2020 in Provo, Utah. He was born the
youngest of 11 children in Price, Utah on February 24, 1950 to Simon Joe Valdez and
Mary Elvira Valdez. He grew up in Lehi and graduated from Lehi High School in 1969.
He married, divorced and went on to raise three children; Tammy Haun (Preston), Anne
Valdez, and Adam Valdez.

Ben was employed with Geneva Steel and retired from UDOT in 2012. He adored his big family
and many friends, and wouldn’t hesitate to do anything for them. Ben never met a stranger
wherever he went with an infectious smile filled with his personality and contagious humor,
as he was very young at heart. He was compassionate, generous and thoughtful. He was extremely
passionate about vintage cars as he spent much of his free time traveling to car shows and
collecting a few of his own. He also extensively collected many vinyls to fulfill his love for music.

He is survived by his three children, three grandchildren Andrew Haun, Brittany
Peterson (Tavin), Brooke Haun, one great granddaughter Emery Peterson, sisters
Bertha Gordon, Josie Gallegoes, Ruby Yates, Evelyn Findling, brother Sesario Valdez,
and girlfriend Lianne Zamora. He was met in Heaven by his parents, grandson Nathan
Haun, brothers Fidel Valdez, Isaac Valdez, Dale Valdez, Chris Valdez and sisters Toni
Martinez and Carolyn Ortega.

There are no scheduled service arrangements at this time to ensure health and safety,
though we wish to celebrate his life in the coming months.

Just want to send my condolences to Ben’s loved ones. Ben was a friend of my older brother and, being from Lehi, I knew him most of my life. Through my adult life I would run into Benny at different places and he always called me by name and ask about my brother and we’d have a short, but sweet conversation. He had a smile on his face and a happy demeanor whenever we met. Benny was a very good man.. I’m truly sorry for your loss. God bless you all and Rest in Peace Ben,

To the Valdez Family and Leanne Ben grew up in our neighborhood and he was always a gentleman. He could make a joke or say something funny without cracking a smile. Even latter in life when we ran into him his smile and our conversation would make us laugh. Our deepest sympathy are with you all he will be missed. Laurie Ainge McKinnon & Vickie Ainge Daley
