They were married in Wilkes-Barre and their attendants were Diane Fathel, maid of honor; and Paul Becker, best man.
The couple has one daughter: Rachel, and son-in-law, Brian Kaslavage. They have two grandchildren: Matthew and Faith.
Garry and Cheryl were honored by their family who gathered for a surprise 40th wedding anniversary party at The Checkerboard Inn, Trucksville.
