David and Carolyn Leaverton of Granbury celebrated their 60th anniversary with a trip to Washington state and celebrations with family and friends at Fort Worth and Yakima, Wash.
David and the former Carolyn Schaeffer were married on July 12, 1952 at Trinity Episcopal Church in Midland.
David and Carolyn met on a blind date while both were attending Texas Tech University. They began their married life in Lubbock where David was stationed at Reese Air Force Base. They have lived in Texas the majority of their married life, raising their girls in Amarillo, Midland and Roswell, NM.
David was a landman with various oil companies until his retirement. Carolyn kept the home fires burning and volunteered in activities in which the girls were involved. They have three daughters—one in Yakima, Wash., one in Houston and one in Austin.
