Bill and Sara (McNeese) Kirtlink, of East Greenwich, R.I., celebrated their 60th anniversary with a family cookout at the home of Lee and Kim Kirtlink in Smithfield, R.I.

Bill was born and raised in Frankford, Mo. The couple was married June 9, 1957, in Boston, Mass.

Bill and Sara had six children: infant Sara (deceased), Will (deceased), Christopher of St. Augustine, Fla., Lee of Smithfield, R.I., Joe of Toledo, Ohio and James of Cranston, R.I.

Bill joined the Navy right out of high school and left Frankford in 1954. They settled in East Greenwich in 1961 when he was stationed at Quonset Point and have been there ever since, but they have a wonderful motor home and still visit family and friends in Pike County as often as they can.
