Eugene W. Allman

FAIRMONT — Eugene W. Allman, 82, of Buckhannon, died Friday (Dec. 31, 2010) at Holbrook’s Nursing Home in Buckhannon under the care of People’s Hospice of Clarksburg.

He was born May 5, 1928 in Arlington, W.Va., a son of the late Asa and Jocie Reger Allman.

On July 1, 1947 he married Betty Jean Crites, who survives. In addition to his wife, he is survived by three daughters, Sue Petonick and husband Lew of Fairmont, Linda Browning and husband Mike of Lawrence, Kan., and Judi Lockhart and husband Les of Jacksonville, Fla.; one son, Mike Allman and wife Vonda of Buckhannon; five granddaughters, Christy Lindvall and husband Heath of Richmond, Va., Meghan Eddy and husband Jeff of Charlottesville, Va., Lori Howell and husband Mark of Lawrence, Kan., Adrienne McVey and husband Steve of Buckhannon, and Kaleigh Lockhart of Chicago; two grandsons, Collin Petonick and wife Nicole of Fairmont and Zachary Allman of Pittsburgh, Pa., and his fiancée Wendy Craig of Walkersville; eight great-grandchildren and two on the way; one brother, Doy Allman and wife Mary of Richwood; one brother-in-law, Dennis Crites Jr. of Buckhannon; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by one sister, Lois Wood.

Mr. Allman was a member of South Buckhannon Mission Church. He worked more than 40 years in the coal mining industry. Following his retirement he was a salesman for B&R Ford and Jenkins Ford. Allman Avenue in Buckhannon was named for Eugene since that was his route from Kanawha Street to Victoria Hill to plow gardens for his friends.

Special thanks to Holbrook’s Nursing Home and People’s Hospice, especially Lea, Pam, Debbie, Ashley, Lee Ann and Cathy.

Friends will be received from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday at Poling-St. Clair Funeral Home. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Monday at the funeral home with Pastor Ed Lowther and the Rev. Donald Butcher officiating. Burial will follow in Mount Olive Cemetery at Hinkleville.
