Antonio ‘Tony’ Benitez


Antonio “Tony” Benitez, of Liberty Hill, Texas, passed away on May 9, 2018, at the age of 62 years.

Tony was born on June 13, 1955, to Elias and Isabel Benitez in Palmar Chico, Mexico.  Against great odds, he achieved many of his life goals. A painter by trade, owning and operating his own painting company for over 25 years, but a rancher at heart. He loved being outdoors and tending to his ranch animals especially his horses. His passion for horses was palpable, most evident when sharing a trail ride with friends and family, the twinkle in his eye and the huge smile when he rode was contagious.

Tony was an inspiration to all who knew him and will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Jeanette Camacho; sons, Anthony and William; stepchildren, Peter and Elizabeth; 2 grandchildren, 5 siblings; numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and dear friends.

There was a visitation for Tony from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm Monday, May 14, 2018, with a 7:00 pm Rosary at Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home, 1200 S. Bagdad Rd. Service was at 10:00 am on Tuesday, May 15, 2018, burial followed.
