Royce and Gwen Pippin are celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary on March 13.  They were married on March 13, 1963 in Donalsonville, Ga. 

The couple has four children, Alan Pippin, Kelly Pippin, Jennifer Glover, and Dawn Sellers and 10 grandchildren, Dr. Jerrid Pippin, Hannah Pippin, Mary Elizabeth Pippin, Sarah Pippin, Seth Pippin, Dustin Harris, Ethan Harris, Kellan Sellers, Shelby Sellers, and JennaRaye Sellers. 

Royce is retired from the Florida Department of Transportation while Gwen is enjoying her retirement from the Florida Department of Corrections. 

Over the years they have spent countless hours watching their children play sports as they rarely missed a game.  After they had grandchildren they continued this trend as they have logged many miles traveling to games all over the southeast.  When they are unable to attend games in person they follow along online. 

Royce and Gwen have always been selfless parents and grandparents always doing whatever they could for their children and grandchildren.
