Roy Owens

Rachael Le Goubin

Roy, 89 and Nora Owens, 88, have been married 69 years this August. After serving in World War II, Roy had always found Nora beautiful and asked her to marry him. They have lived in Elkhorn City, Kentucky, since the 1920s and Roy has spent his whole life on the railroad. Roy said it really bothers him that they’re closing the railroad after 100 years, “I’ve grown up on this railroad, I’ve lived here all my life and they’re taking away a part of my life.”
