The Chiappes


Gene and Carol Chiappe, of Granbury, left in their motor home in April to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary by visiting many of our beautiful National Parks and other places.

Gene Chiappe and the former Carol Wakeman were married on June 15, 1963 in New York City. They say that God sent them to Texas in 1973. They have lived in Granbury since 1991. They raised two sons, Glenn of Austin and Richard of Granbury, who brought them their two “daughters,” Cathryn and Deborah, and “five exceptional grandchildren.”

Gene is still “working” at Sky-Tec, a Granbury aviation-related business, and Carol is a retired Texas Real Estate Broker.

The couple attends Acton United Methodist Church. They thank God for the years together and reaching this milestone and pray there will be may more. Unique to them is the fact that they share a birthday on March 1.
