Dan and Carol Smith of Sun Lakes celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on June 6. They were married on June 6, 1964 at Claim Street Baptist Church in Aurora, Illinois. They resided in the Aurora area until moving to Arizona in 1974 where they began their now 40 year career selling real estate in the Southeast Valley. Both are now residential real estate brokers and own their own company, Dan Smith Realty.
Dan and Carol have three sons that were all able to join them for the celebration: Dan, Jr. and wife Jana, with the Smith’s granddaughters Abbey and Emma from Ashburn, Virginia; Tom and his wife, Christina from Mesa; and Steve from Campbell (San José), California. They surprised their parents with a gift of a trip to Maui to be taken later this year.
Dan and Carol are active members of First Baptist Church of Sun Lakes and enjoy living and working in Sun Lakes, even in the summer!
