Naughton’s celebrate 50 years of marriage

Phillip “Phil” J. and Barbara A. Naughton were married on Feb. 15, 1969 by Rev. John Manno at Mater Delarosa Church in Williamsport.

Phillip, a native of Williamsport, is the son of the late Joe and Zina Naughton. He graduated from Williamsport High School, served four years in the Air Force and retired from Textron Lycoming in 2004 after 39 years.

He currently serves as the president of the “Stonewall Hunting Club” in Cascade Township where he is better known as the “BLG.”

Barb, also a native of Williamsport, is the daughter of the late Frank and Evelyn Bennardi. She graduated from St. Joseph’s Catholic School and is retired from Aetna and Ed’s Market.

She serves as the event and appointment scheduler for the whole family as well as judge and jury concerning culinary debates between her offspring which are a result of her tutelage.

They have two children, Jessica A. Naughton and Scott F. Naughton (Dana) and two grandsons, Lucas T. and James D. Naughton.

The majority of their free time is spent spoiling their children and grandchildren which isn’t difficult for them as they have mastered it through their time together.

A family dinner is planned at some point in the future when there isn’t football or baseball practice or a game or next hunting season.
