Fifty years ago, Doug and Pat Eggleston of Marriott-Slaterville were married on Aug. 15, 1963, in Elko, Nev. They celebrated with their family at the Maddox Ranch House Restaurant.
They have spent the last 50 years enjoying being parents and grandparents, and supporting their children and grandchildren in all they do. They have watched and participated in three generations of youth and high school rodeo, patiently waiting for the fourth generation to start. Following granddaughters across the state to cheer them on in their softball endeavors is another favorite pastime.
They have four children: Candy and Keith Colvin, Troy Eggleston (deceased), Trish and Steve Morgan, and Wes and Whitney Eggleston. They have eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
