Henry and Patricia Barnard are celebrating their 50th anniversary Aug. 16, 2013. The Rev. L.A. Colding performed the ceremony at Calvary Baptist Church in DeLand. The couple were high-school sweethearts.
The Barnards celebrated the special day with family from Raleigh, N.C., and Sugar Grove, N.C., Aug. 2 at Daniel Boone Restaurant, while visiting the beautiful mountains of North Carolina.
The couple have two children, Laura Hancock and David Barnard, both of DeLand, 13 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
They will celebrate again Sunday, Aug. 18, with their children and grandchildren by attending church and sharing a meal afterward.
Patricia is retired from Southern Bell, and Henry continues to operate Barnard Roofing Inc., as he has done for the past for 37 years.
The couple says, "We thank God for his blessings and love in our marriage."
