On Tuesday, September 14, 2021, Benjamin Norte, beloved husband, brother, and friend passed away at the age of 85.
He is survived by his wife, Sheila Norte, Brother Reynaldo (Gudrun) Norte, and many loving family members and friends. He spent twenty-four years in the air force. He then worked twenty-six years as a security guard at the Caesar’s Palace.
He will always be remembered as a loving husband, brother and friend. People always say that he was the funniest man they knew with a wonderful laugh and great sense of humor.

My dear brother Benny. May god take you into the next world and keep you safe. I will miss you and all the great times we had thru out our lives. You are in my prayers.
Uncle Benny was a man full of humor and laughter. He made our family celebrations hilarious especially when he and our dad, Reynaldo, started telling stories together. We will miss you and keep you in our hearts. I am thankful to God that he was married to a wonderful woman later in his life and that they made each other happy.
My beloved husband, we had a beautiful funeral for you yesterday. The Air Force chaplain performed the services and it was wonderful. The honor guard performed the folding of the flag, then the VFW did a 21 gun salute. Your urn was then placed in the wall and the chaplain said a prayer and blessings. I miss you so much but, I know that you went straight to heaven. You are no longer in pain and suffering. You were the best husband anyone could have been. I know we will be together again in heaven.
Then, there was the folding of the flag by the honor guard. You would of been so proud of your brother who spoke of you.
Uncle Ben was a great man, he had a huge heart, always smiling and was the life of the party. Ben treated my aunt like the queen she is and I am very thankful for that. We love and miss you uncle Benny
