Richard Sarette took Patricia Stotlar’s hand in marriage at St. Paul’s Church in San Pablo on May 2, 1953.

On Saturday, the couple is celebrating its 60th wedding anniversary with their five children: Deborah Ellison, Raymond Sarette, Thomas Sarette, Richard Jr. and Steve Sarette; six grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

Richard, 80, met Patricia, 77, when she was a student at Berkeley High School and he was in the U.S. Navy. He was serving on the U.S.S. Bellatrix that was anchored at Hunter’s Point.

Richard and Patricia moved to Diamond Springs in 1962, where they reside today. The couple and their children owned and operated Dick’s Ignition Service in Diamond Springs.

The couple wanted to make a positive influence on children’s lives in El Dorado County. They coached Little League and Babe Ruth baseball from the 1960s through the late 1970s.

“They should be highly commended for the kindness they put forth toward the good of others over the course of their lives,” said son Richard. “We, their children, are so very proud to call them our parents.”

The couple has always been very active. They’ve gone square dancing and done camping and hunting with their children.

In recent decades they’ve participated in the Jeepers Jamboree in Georgetown and played golf on various courses in El Dorado County. Patricia has recorded two holes-in-one. Patricia enjoys painting and making dolls. Today, the couple enjoys growing flowers and vegetables on their six acres of farm land.
