Andrew Louis Frahler and Claire Jennings were married 60 years ago at Chevy Chase Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. Andy Frahler, a Naval Academy graduate, served aboard a submarine, a destroyer, a battleship and a missile cruiser. He retired as a Commander in the U.S. Navy. Shore duties included teaching at the Academy at Annapolis as well as serving in Newport, R.I., Great Lakes, Ill. and the Pentagon.

The Frahlers lived in more than 23 homes before moving to their present location in Dunwoody on Harwick Drive. After leaving the Navy, Andy taught for several years at DeKalb Christian Academy.

Their four married children attended the recent anniversary celebration. Their son, Don, also a retired Naval officer, and his wife, Sharon come from Alexandria, Va. Their oldest daughter, Andrea, and her husband Richard Shupert hosted the event at their home in Dunwoody. Andrea is a teacher at the Wesleyan School in Norcross. Their younger son, Ron and his wife Heidi who reside in Northfield, Ill., were also able to attend. Their younger daughter, Marybeth, and husband Dennis Culbreth live in Cumming, and were able to attend with their three children.

All in all, most of the 10 grandchildren were able to attend the family celebration and everyone had a perfect time of celebrating and hearing their memories of 60 years of marriage.
