John and Margaret (Marnie) Dean are celebrating 60 years of marriage throughout the year of 2021. They have been blessed with health, happiness, four treasured siblings (Lloyd Sr, Ron, Fred, and George), four amazing children (Debbie, Lloyd, D’Arcy, and Brad), eight wonderful grandchildren, two precious great-grandchildren and an amazing collection of “adopted” in-laws, out-laws, cousins, spouses, steps and significant others!

Due to this pandemic lockdown, their 60th Anniversary Tour has been cancelled (or maybe postponed). Married on April 29, 1961, in Kimberley, their journey together has taken them on many a bridge, over sea and mountains, on highways, backroads, and even through tunnels. For now, however, they are joyfully enjoying island life planted in their Comox Valley home! Although the party is postponed, their love carries on!

Well wishes, memories, prayer and ongoing celebrations can be shared throughout the pandemic via Zoom, telephone, email and yes… even snail mail!

Congratulations on celebrating 60 years together!
