Benildo “Boy/ Ben” Lucero, 61, of Westford, MA died on Good Friday, April 10, 2020 surrounded by family.  Benildo lost his battle with cancer (sarcoma) diagnosed a year ago in April.

Born in Amadeo, Cavite of the Philippines, he was the son of the late Miguel Lucero and of Asuncion (Angcanan) Lucero.

Benildo earned his Associate’s Degree in Maritime Transportation from the Philippine Maritime Institute. He earned a living as a jeepney and taxicab driver in the Philippines while taking care of his own family and younger siblings in the Philippines when both parents came to the United States. His dream of coming to the US was realized in 2008, but he had to spend the next 12 years separated from his family in the Philippines. Working as a long-time galley and bedroom hand for ENSCO and Bisso Marine offshore oil refineries, he was often away from family in the US, only visiting on rare holidays. A recession layoff brought him home to Massachusetts and he drove for Uber until his health declined.

Benildo was a communicant of St. Catherine’s Church of Westford, MA. He was a member of the Filipino Apostolate, the Malden Filipino Choir and the Knights of Columbus.

His family described him as someone with tremendous courage, strength, determination and self- sacrifice. He persevered through many of life’s challenges and was incredibly hardworking, friendly and always telling jokes to make us smile. Singing, dancing, cooking, and spending time with his family were among the things he loved the most. Benildo became a US Citizen in 2016 and was working towards bringing his wife and three daughters to the USA, but was hindered by his illness.

Benildo is survived by his wife Joselyn (Joya) Lucero who is currently residing in the Philippines with their daughters Sophia, Patricia and Franz; his ex-wife, Luz Sulla of the Philippines with their children – Kristine, Michael, Marjorie, Gracielle, Cheryll, Jan Martin and Justin. He is also survived by his brothers – Bryan Lucero of Manchester, NH; Oliver and his wife Anna Marie Lucero of Anchorage, AK; Marlon and his wife Mel Lucero of Manchester, NH; his sisters – Annie and her husband Danny Talaid of Westford, MA; Tess Monteyro and her husband Dean Berube of Newmarket, NH; Elsa De Lara of Manchester, NH; Marietta and her husband Jojo Barton of the Philippines; Malou and her husband Peter Harmsen of the Netherlands; his seven grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews. He was the brother of the late Jacqueline Farrar of Gardner, MA who died February 1, 2004.

A loving husband, father, son, brother and friend, Boy will forever be loved and missed by all who knew him.

A virtual funeral service will be Tuesday at 9 am at DOLANFUNERALHOME.COM. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made in his honor to Venmo account: @Annie-Talaid.  ARRANGEMENTS BY DOLAN FUNERAL HOME 978-251-4041.

    Dear Tess, and the Lucero family, I’m so sorry, Boy has lost this battle. It’s so unfair for such a “good” person, but as we all know God takes the “good” as well. May peace be with him, as he is now in the arms of our lord, and out of pain. I’m praying for your strength and acceptance in the days ahead…until you meet again.
    Sincerely,

    May Boy rest in peace. He lived life to the fullest and fought the mighty fight at the end. May he rest in external peace. I hope that the family draws some comfort in knowing that friends are here to express our deepest sympathies and shared in his service.

    Boy will be greatly missed.. his kindness, friendliness, sense of humor and most of all his being close to us like a real family. He would come and visit whenever and we would just talk happily mostly about his/our life and family. It’s so sad he is now gone after his long struggle with his sickness but comforting to know that God chose the time to take Boy with Him at the same time He died on the cross. Boy is now resting in peace in Paradise with our Lord Jesus Christ. Nanay Cion, like what Boy always says to you “pahinga naman kayo paminsan minsan, enjoy life and continue to be happy as always”. I’m sure he will be watching you Nanay and the rest of your family. He loves you all very much. We love you too.
