A marriage that started with a chance meeting on “Thunder Road” in Wagener has lasted 50 years.

While working in the area for a Mississippi based power line construction company, Richard Hardy met Wagener native Shirley Widener.

They married in Aiken on Sept. 21, 1963.

Almost immediately they began a life of traveling the United States for Richard’s work. He continues to work for the same company today after more than 52 years.

After many years of traveling, they came back to Wagener to settle down and be near family.

Their children are Cynthia Hardy and Cheryl Poole of Wagener.

Cheryl and her husband Eric are the parents of Hank and Emma, who are the so precious to their grandparents.
