Ward and Margaret Lantier of Redlands celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Oct. 23.

Ward and Margaret met in San Antonio, Texas, while both were serving in the U.S. Air Force. They were married Oct. 23, 1965, in the chapel of the Air Force hospital at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio.

They have lived in Redlands since July 1977.

They have one son, John, who lives with his wife, Cindy, in Whittier.

Ward was born and raised in New York City. He received degrees in electrical engineering and management from Manhattan College, the Air Force Institute of Technology and the University of Redlands.

While in the Air Force, he worked in electronics maintenance, intelligence and development of missile and space systems.

He retired from the Air Force as a lieutenant colonel and subsequently worked on space and ballistic missile systems with Rockwell International and with TRW.

Margaret was born in West Virginia and grew up in England. She received her training as a nurse at the London Hospital School of Nursing. After graduation from nurse’s training, she moved with her parents to Canada and then to the United States.

She worked as a nurse in private medical practice and in hospital nursing in Canada and with the Veterans Administration in West Virginia and New York.

She served in the Air Force as a nurse in orthopedics and intensive care in the Philippines and in several hospitals in the United States.

She left active duty as a captain when the couple’s son, John, was born.

Ward and Margaret have enjoyed traveling in England, Italy, the Holy Land, Egypt, Australia and as much of the United States as time has permitted. Margaret has also traveled to many places in Asia and to Greece, France and Alaska.

Ward and Margaret are continuing the celebration of their golden wedding anniversary with their 10th trip to Hawaii.
