Basil “Boomer” and Doerthe Needham of Carolina Shores celebrated 60 years of love and devotion at a family reunion Oct. 7-8 at several beachfront cottages in Sunset Beach. They met in 1942 in their high school math class in Bayside, N.Y., while competing for the best test grades in the class.
Boomer joined the U.S. Naval Reserve in 1946, graduated from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in 1950 and sailed as a deck officer with Grace Line for seven years, attaining the rank of lieutenant. He remained active in the U.S. Naval Reserve until 1957.
