Jerry and Diane (Pettibone) Fox, of Bend, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a family dinner followed by a three-week European vacation.

The couple were married June 1, 1968, in Solon, Ohio, and moved to Bend in 1986. They have four daughters, Wendi (and Rob) Day, Sara (and Todd) McQuillin, Nanci (and Andrew) Huston, all of Bend, and Christi (and Kenny) Cooper, of Boise, Idaho, and eight grandchildren.

Mr. Fox, with daughter Wendi and her husband Rob, founded Bend Brewing Company in 1995 and successfully ran it for 20 years. He also was an owner of Bend Wood Products. Mrs. Fox stayed busy raising her four daughters. As they grew, she worked as a substitute art teacher and occasionally was a lift hostess at Mt. Bachelor.

The retired couple spends their time traveling and with their daughters’ families.

They have lived in Bend for 32 years.
