Marvin and Loretta Fry celebrate 40 years
Marvin Fry and Loretta Johnson met in Lake City during the summer of 1971.
Jess and Vergie Fry said, "Wonder why our son would drive 90 miles to see a Missouri girl when there are lots of Arkansas girls he could date."
Then two years later, the couple married on June 10, 1973, at Poplar Bluff, Mo., at the Baptist Church.
Mr. and Mrs. Fry have lived in the Buffalo Island area most of their lives. They have 10 wonderful grandchildren who also live within the Buffalo Island area.
Their six children want to wish them a happy 40th anniversary and many more great years to come. Their children are Lorie, Marvin II, Melissa, Lisa, Jesse and Daniel.
