Carl and Patsy Bacon Cumbow celebrated 65 memorable years together Aug. 10, 2013.
Family and friends were gathered at a friend’s home on Cherokee Lake for visiting and refreshments.
The couple has been blessed with two loving daughters, Vicky Stathas of Marietta, Ga., and Carla Elliott of Kingsport, during these six and one-half decades. They have one grandchild and two great-grandchildren.
The couple was married Aug. 10, 1948, in Kingsport, with the Rev. Ted R. Witt officiating. They have been part of the Kingsport culture ever since.
Carl retired from Kingsport Press (Arcata Graphics) in 1986 after 40 years of service. Patsy retired in 1992 from Nettie Lee shops.
The Cumbows have been very fortunate to have experienced 25-plus years of retirement together.
