Robert and Martha Seppi will celebrate their 50th anniversary on Oct. 5.
They met while they were both stationed at Naval Station Norfolk and married in Elizabeth City, N.C. in 1962. They have lived in Oak Harbor for the last 42 years.
Robert retired from the Navy in 1974 and from the Navy Exchange in 1996. Martha chose to leave the Navy shortly after the couple married. She became a homemaker and mother to their three daughters and worked for a few years at the Navy Exchange.
They are the parents of Bobbi, Jodi and Sharon and the proud grandparents of Chantal, Zac, Jordan, Brady, Hunter, Shanyn, Daryl and Ian, and recently became great-grandparents to Avery.
