George Bennett Obituary


George Wayne Bennett, age 75 of Seneca Rocks, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, September 15, 2022, at his home.

Born March 21, 1947, in Elkins, WV, he was the son of the late Robbie Dean Martin and Fred Bennett. He was raised by his grandmother Edie Catherine Bennett. In 1967, he married Rebecca Louise Lambert.  He is also survived by a son, Terry Wayne Bennett and wife Lora, three granddaughters, Michaela Catherine Alt (Daniel), Madison Haylee Moss (Nick) and Mariah ReAnn Goldizen (Casey) all of Petersburg, WV, one brother L. Ricky Bennett (Eileen) of Bear, DE, one sister, Loretha Humphrey of Clermont, FL, several nieces and nephews and a host of friends.

Preceding him in death, was his step- mother, Mildred Bennett, one brother, John Bennett, and one infant grandson Miles Eli Bennett.

George was a 1967 graduate of Circleville High School. He was a former employee of SCM Allied Egry as a press operator for 26 years, VEPCO for three years and Allegheny Wood Products for 17 years as a dry kiln operator until his retirement in 2015. There he was fondly nicknamed “Ralphie.” He was a Christian by faith. He was a member of Seneca United Methodist Church but attended the Bayard UM Church and Mt. Storm UM Church where his beloved wife Rebecca serves as Pastor.

He enjoyed spending time with his family at the cabin on Little Spruce and was an avid WVU Mountaineers fan. His life was centered around God, his family, and helping others.
