Achilles: Bennie Howard Belvin, 79, died March 20, 2012 at his home. Bennie was a native of Gloucester County and a member of Union Baptist Church. A longtime waterman, he began working on the water at the age of 13 and founder and owner of Belvin Seafood Incorporated since 1968. He was the end of a great generation of watermen. His day began long before sunrise lasting until after sunset. It's a hard job, but one that Bennie had a great passion for. He was a mentor to many young watermen. His advice and guidance was solid, with his positive attitude, readiness to take on challenges and the ability to communicate with everybody. As a devoted husband, father and brother he leaves a legacy of accomplishments and respect for all. He will be missed by everyone in the community.
His parents, Howard and Hazel Belvin and sister, Doris B. Rowe preceded him in death.
He is survived by:
Wife: Esther Mae Belvin
Daughter: Myron Belvin Hall and husband Carlton
Sisters: Catherine B. Ashe
Hazel B. Rowe and husband, Francis
Frances B. Phillips
Sue B. Blake and husband Graham
And a host of nieces and nephews
