A well known Hazard businessman is dead.
Danny Martin died at his home Sunday.
Martin was the first chairman of the Black Gold Festival Committee in the early 1980's and was partly responsible for making it a huge event each year.
Under his watch several cast members of the Dukes of Hazzard came to the festival in 1981, which attracted tens of thousands of people.
Martin was also the owner of Martin's signs and a member of the Appalachian Riders Motorcycle Club.
His visitation will be Tuesday at the New Hope Christian Center in Hazard from two until four and his funeral will follow at four.
Danny Martin was 64.
