Vikki Trevino, 74, of Gering, NE passed away December 20, 2020. Bennie Trevino Jr, 76, of Gering, NE passed away on December 24, 2020, both due to health reasons. A private service will be held for immediate family due to gathering restriction, and a celebration of life for Vikki and Bennie will be held and announced at a later date. Vikki and Bennie were longtime residents of Gering where they raised their family and were well known and loved by many. Vikki was raised in Bayard and graduated from Bayard High School in 1965. Her work experience included nursing and working with young children in Head Start and Gering Public Schools. Vikki was always a devoted house wife and loving and committed mother to her sons. Her greatest passion was spending time with her grandchildren. She also enjoyed gardening, going to garage sales and finding treasures for the grandkids. Vikki made the best tortillas and would make them fresh upon request from any of her grandchildren. Vikki will be remembered for her wit and referring to many as "girlfriend, boyfriend, and toots". Another quote from Vikki was "It's not goodbye, its catch ya later". She had heart of gold and made friends wherever she went. Bennie was raised in Scottsbluff and graduated from Scottsbluff High School in 1963. He was drafted into the Armed Forces from 1965-1968 and served a tour of duty in Vietnam. Upon return from the Army, Bennie worked for Guirdon Industries and retired from there. He met the love of his life, Vikki Razo and married her in 1971. Together they raised their sons, Carlos and Anthony. Bennie's greatest passion, along with Vikki's, was also spending time and caring for his grandchildren. He was ALWAYS there for them. Bennie served as a great leader/mentor for many youth and was an assistant scout master for Boy Scout Troop #17 for over 30 years. His hobbies included: custom pin striping for vehicles and signs, playing guitar, attending stock car races and softball games. Bennie helped organize the memorial which stands at the Guadalupe Center commemorating the Latino Veterans from Scottsbluff. Bennie will be remembered for being the family handyman and a dedicated leader in all aspects. He will also be remembered for his many talents including his delicious and much requested refried beans. Vikki and Bennie were devoted Catholics and members of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. They showed their dedication by providing music ministries, gardening, and helping with the OLG funeral committee. They were always together and rarely leaving each other's side. But they left us unexpectedly and, by the grace of God, they are still together forever.

I worked with Vicki at the Gering preschool during my time there. She was a friendly caring and hardworking lady. She often worked when she should have been home whether it was because she was sick or was just needed at home. I remember on day at Preschool when she as laying on the floor at lunch recess because she didn’t feel good. I told her she needed to go home and of course she argued. But she finally went. After that she always called me mom for making her take care of herself. I will miss her and her great smile.

I send my condolences to Anthony and Carlos and the entire Trevino and Razo family. I spent many years getting to know both Bennie and Vikki. Bennie spent 35 years as part of Troop 17. He spent 6 years as an Assistant Tennis Coach for the Gering Junior Tots Tennis club.
Through Bennie’s scouting career with me, Vikki was a major part in supporting Bennie’s time with us. For every good man, there is a good woman & Vikki was that woman.
Bennie was one of my book-ends for me as scoutmaster. I could always depend on him for his service to Troop 17. I could always count on him to do his professional volunteer job as my assistant.
Bennie had 175 campouts as well as many summer camps at Laramie Peak. Bennie had a great way with the boys, teaching them archery for their merit badge. I could always see the love for our boys in Bennie’s eyes, & he was a father figure to many. With his leadership & service to our troop, he had a big role in helping over 70 boys become Eagle Scouts. Bennie received many awards & honors in Troop 17.
Bennie was not only one of my assistant scout leaders, but he was also a close friend of mine. Bennie & Vikki were godparents in my marriage as well as the godparents of our daughter, Andrea. We shared many stories about growing up as both of us were the oldest in our families. Bennie always spoke to me about the love for his two sons & his grandchildren. They made him so proud. Bennie had a great sense of humor & we shared many laughs together.
Ben’s military service to his country, his service to his community, his role as a beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle and brother were amazing and will never be forgotten. He will live on in the heart of Troop 17 forever.
In closing, I will miss my friend and his memory will always live in my heart, along with Vikki. God Bless them both and I wish them both well in Heaven. Anthony and Carlos, you know that I am always here for you.

Ben and Vikki were like family to the Murillo’s , we always invited them to our dances we had at the Knights of Columbus Hall. Vikki always said, “how’s it going girlfriend or sometime she would say Toots. They will both be greatly missed by their family, friends and the community. RIP Bennie and Vikki, fly high with the angels.

My dear cousins Vikki & Bennie were like 2nd parents to me back in the days. I remember living in Bayard & I would wait every weekend for their visit to Grandma Razo’s house. They would do their laundry there & always had money to get that delicious popcorn out of the cute dispenser for us. I would always ask them to watch me swim at the local pool there & they would. They liked making fun of my skinny self & bright bikini suits & diving off the high board. I remember Vikki & I in Scottsbluff & went shopping one time & her car would not start in cold winter. She would rub the car & say “ C’mon Betsy “. she said that a lot. I remember the nickname she gave me, Lawrence or Toots. I have lots of great memories of these two special cousin’s & will never forget. 💕

I worked at the detention center in the front lobby area. Mr Trevino came in every morning to leave a burrito for his son and niece who also worked there. Soon he had a burrito every morning for me as well. I thought that was so kind of he and his wife to do that for me!!! Two beautiful souls now together with God 💗💗💗
