Willard “Bill” Raymond McVicker and Lawanda Genell “Gen” McVicker were married on June 6, 1953, in Annapolis Junction, Md.

Bill was born in 1931 in the Bunner’s Ridge neighborhood of Fairmont, but lived most of his life in the state of Maryland. He was in the commerical building profession and built many outstanding structures in that state. He was a senior superintendent on many schools throughout his 40-plus year career.

He also worked in the state of West Virginia as a consultant for a commerical company in Elkins before retiring in 2010. Genell was born in Blackwater, Va., in 1931 and moved to Maryland when she was a young girl. She worked for several firms as a secretary, working over 20 years for the General Electric Co. in Columbia, Md., before her retirement in 1996.

They resided in Maryland for more than 40 years, but have lived in Canaan Valley for the last 10 years. They have two children and three grandchildren, all of whom love them. Happy anniversary and congratulations on your 60 years of commitment and care!
