Former BJ reporter Lacy McCrary, who retired from the Philadelphia Inquirer, and Colleen Christy McCrary celebrated their golden (50th) wedding anniversary at the 255-room Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina. That’s the Vanderbilt mansion and estate. I’ve been there. Amazing library!
Lacy is a Kent State graduate involved in some of the BJ’s Pulitzer Prizes.
Lacy spends a lot of time in Colorado these days and he’s an Air Force Academy fan, because he studied there. Lacy and Colleen live in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina.
Murrells Inlet is only 18 miles from Pauleys Island, South Carolina, where retired printer Dick Latshaw and his wife Pat live. Dick and Pat live two blocks from BJ business department retiree Harold McElroy’s widow, Linda. Retired printer Sid Sprague, who also lived near them on Pawleys Island, moved to Loveland, Colorado with his new bride after his first wife died.
Lacy's daughter Kathy Rash McCrary writes:
“Happy golden wedding anniversary to my mom and dad. What they have taught me about love, companionship, compassion, compromise and perseverance cannot be measured. We are truly blessed!”
