St. George • Sixty years after meeting as teenagers, a St. George couple in their 80s have tied the knot.
The Spectrum of St. George reports Bill Koncar and Barbara Burt were married Oct. 29 after both of their spouses had died and they reunited at a high school reunion.
Although both attended West High School in Salt Lake City about the same time, they never met at school.
It wasn’t until after Bill’s graduation that his sister suggested he take her friend Barbara out for a date and brought her by the house. But he declined because he was interested in someone else.
After his wife of 52 years died in 2009, Bill finally gave Barbara a call. He says love blossomed after they attended the high school reunion together.
