Jack and Bernice (Sperry) Howser of Lake Wales, Fla., formerly of Quincy, celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary at their home.

They were married on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, 1953.

The Howsers have lived in Florida for 45 years with their son, Brian Jay Howser.

Mr. Howser owned and operated a paving and construction company and then owned a general engineering company which led him to join the city of Lakeland, Fla., as a supervisor in the construction and maintenance division. He retired after 12 years with the city and now pursues his hobby of rebuilding old muscle cars from the 60s-'80s.

Mrs. Howser joined her husband as his office manager in the construction and engineering companies and later opened a successful custom upholstery shop. She is also retired and enjoys caring for flowers and plants.
