Pauline and George Renaud celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on Saturday. They were about to get married in Rhode Island the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.  They postponed their honeymoon and drove to his funeral instead.

George is a retired middle school social studies teacher.  They live in Estero. In partnership with the Fort Myers News-Press, we bring you the Renaud’s memories of that time.

George and Pauline Renaud were among 250 southwest Floridians who responded to a query by the News-Press about where they were when JFK was shot. Find the entire project here
