Alva Martin Bennett's father was a coal miner and his only son also worked at the mine. As far as relatives knew, it was the only job 'Marty' ever had. 'He loved it, that has been his life,' Marie Bonner said of her 50-year-old nephew. Bennett's brother-in-law, Roger Perry, was one of at least five miners who got out of the mine after the explosion. 'Marty was very knowledgeable and such a good worker he could do just about anything,' Bonner said.
Alva was one of 11 minors who died in a mining accident after lightning caused an explosion. He was the son of Alva H. Bennett and Anna Bailey Bennett of Buckhannon and beloved husband of Judy Ann Lantz Bennett. He is also survived by his loving son, Russell Martin and spouse, Bobby Bennett; sisters, Donnie Perry, Diane Robinson, Sharon Robinson and Sandra Linger, of Buckhannon; brother, Roger Bennett of Buckhannon; and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and friends.
