Benny Norman Wero, Jr., age 31, of Randlett, passed away August 30, 2019, in Roosevelt, Utah.
He was born November 10, 1987, in St. George, to Benny Wero, Sr. and Brittani-Anne Jake. He had gone to trade school in carpentry.
Benny was a good, son, brother, and uncle who loved his family - especially his two nephews, one of whom he raised for the first year of his life. He was kind and respectful to his parents and elders and helped anyone in need. He took part in the Native American Church, sang with the Wolf Singers and Red Spirit drum groups, sang at Sundances and Bear Dances, and was a Northern Traditional Dancer at Pow Wows. He was very athletic & smart, and was good at everything. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, being in the mountains, cabinet building, eating his mom’s cooking, and he put the “Cool” in “Cool!” He is dearly loved and will be sorely missed.
