October 18, 1953 ~ March 6, 2017 (age 63)
Alicia Benavidez Panzarino passed away on Monday, March 6, 2017 at her residence in Fair Oaks Ranch, TX surrounded by her family at the age of 63. She leaves behind her husband, Michael Panzarino; her daughter, Allison Barker; her son, Vincent Michael Panzarino and the joy of her life Luciana "Lulu' Perez, her only granddaughter.
Alicia is survived by her brothers, Jose Benavidez and Robert (Glenda) Benavidez; along with numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents Manuel P. (Elsa) Benavidez and her brother Manuel "Meme" (Rosario) Benavidez, Jr.
Alicia was a driven, brave, iron-willed professional that served as a US Immigration and Customs Special Agent under the Department of Homeland Security since 1975 until her retirement in 2009. Even after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 1995, she remained dedicated in her work and in her will to fight her illness.
