Marvin Benton “BJ” Frankhouser,
84, of Bruceton Mills, WV, passed away Tuesday, January 11, 2022, at his home.
The son of the late Cloyd and Gladys Christopher Frankhouser, he was born May 27, 1937, in Hudson, WV.
Marvin ‘BJ’ was a 1955 graduate of Bruceton High School. He was employed at the Albright Power Station for 38 years and enjoyed working and caring for the Frankhouser Farm, as well as caring for the Sugar Valley Cemetery. Marvin was involved in the initiation of the Albright Fire Department in which he is a Charter Member. Both he and his wife helped many people.
Marvin’s desire was not to go to a “home” when he was no longer able to care for himself. His sons, along with the help of Amedisys Hospice, family and friends, were able to keep him in his home.
He is survived by two sons: Marvin L. Frankhouser and his wife, Veronica, of Fairmont, WV, and Edward Frankhouser of Bruceton Mills; six grandchildren, Kevin and Travis Frankhouser, Joe Poe, Jake and Tom Frankhouser, and Sherea Winters; fourteen great grandchildren; a brother, Cloyd Ray Frankhouser, of Albright, WV; and a sister, Carol Ann Frankhouser, of Hazelton, WV.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Naomi Teter Frankhouser, November 14, 2004; and two sisters, Sylvia Miller and Linda Hoover.
