Plane Crash: Birthday trip for Stanford couple turns tragic

By LIZ MAPLES
lizm@amnews.com

BENTON, Clark and Bobbie

STANFORD - Clark Benton and his wife, Bobbie, were flying to Aruba to celebrate her 50th birthday when they died aboard Comair Flight 5191 Sunday at Blue Grass Airport. The couple lived in Stanford.

Clark Benton, 48, had given his wife a surprise birthday party and two tickets for a week-long vacation in Aruba.

"She'd always said, 'Before I die, I want to go to the Caribbean," said Lois Denham, a licensed optician at Tinder-Krauss-Tinder where Bobbie Benton worked. "She was such a sweet person, and she was so excited about this trip." The Bentons were on the Lexington flight that was headed to Atlanta.

"Going to the Caribbean was one thing Bobbie had always wanted to do," said Sue Cooper, a family friend. The tickets were "just a wonderful gesture on (Clark's) part." Clark Benton worked at General Dynamics, a military company headquartered in Falls Church, Va., and he was retired from the U.S. Marines. They were active members of Fort Logan Church of Christ.

Bobbie Benton's brother is Bill Demrow, the Lincoln County coroner. The couple had a daughter, Mary Benton, and a son, Richard Benton. Clark Benton's parents are Earl and Rebexie Benton of Waynesburg.

"They are one of the best families in our community," said David Gambrel, Lincoln County property valuation administrator and a local minister. Bobbie Benton taught Bible classes for children, and Clark Benton taught adult Bible classes and occasionally preached at Fort Logan Church of Christ. Church members were in shock at Sunday services, said Wayne Galloway, pastor at the church. "We were overwhelmed with grief ... we recognized the faith Bobbie and Clark had, and we talked about that's why we're here ... to make preparations to be with the Lord and to follow the example and faith (the Bentons) set for us," Galloway said.

The church is planning a special memorial service. Funeral arrangements are incomplete at Fox Funeral Home. Copyright:The Advocate-Messenger 2006
