Walter and Sue Wyatt of Aiken, South Carolina celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary on Friday, March 15th, with their friends and family in Spartanburg, South Carolina where they were married.


Mr. Wyatt and the former Miss Pruitt were united in marriage March 15, 1958 at the Spartanburg, SC courthouse. They were married by the judge in his chambers at 9:40 p.m. as evidenced by their marriage certificate, but that’s another story.


For 20 years they followed Mr. Wyatt’s Marine Corps career, making homes in Hawaii, California, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia before moving permanently to Aiken, South Carolina.


The couple has three children: Walter Stephen Wyatt, Rhonda Dixon, and Kara (Tim) Thompson. Grandchildren are Renee Good, Joshua Wyatt, Stephen Paul Wyatt, Brittany Wyatt, Tyler Dixon, and Joseph Dixon. They have five great-grandchildren.
