John and Wanda Bacon, Fayette, were named the king and queen of the Fulton County Fair Golden Wedding Party, Sunday afternoon.

They married Nov. 10, 1939, at the Methodist parsonage in Wauseon.

John worked at Fayette Manufacturing, while Wanda worked for 23 years in the Fayette school system. They met while roller-skating down Main St. in Fayette. She caught up with him, and they’ve been married 67 years.

“She’s a good cook and listens to me pretty good,” said John of his wife, while Wanda said of John, “he’s ornery, and I just let it go in one ear and out the other.

“We are compatible. We just get along.”

The Bacons have one son, Stanley, of Bryan. They have seven grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.

A total of 82 couples were honored at the fair.
