Beryl and Jack Napper celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary at Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa

Jack and Beryl Napper celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in style by jetskiing in the Dickenson Bay waters while vacationing at Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa.   Onlookers stared in awe as the 83 and 84 year olds had the time of their lives.  “We love Antigua and we have been coming here for fifteen years because of the beautiful beaches and hospitable people who make us feel like we are at home,” said Mr. Napper.  “It has been a wonderful anniversary,” added Mrs. Napper.  On March 15, we heard a knock on the door at our home in Cheltenham.  I realized that it was a package being delivered and when I opened it, I could not believe my eyes.  It was a lovely card signed by Queen Elizabeth and she wished us a happy anniversary.”

With 6 children, 12 grandchildren and one great grandchild, the Napper’s remain busier than ever by travelling and keeping fit.  “My wife was a phenomenal athlete back in the day.  In fact, we used to shoot rabbits and Beryl is the finest marksman with a rifle that I have ever seen.  She never missed!”

When asked about the secret to a marriage lasting 6 decades, Mrs. Napper said, “Patience and love are crucial.  He still makes me tea at 7am daily and he gives me flowers regularly.”  The Napper’s have no intention of slowing down as long as their good health persists.  “We know that Antigua has quite a few centenarians and we are motivated to reach that pinnacle,” commented Mr. Napper.
