PENNDEL, PA. — A war kept Wayne Wood’s brother from at­tend­ing his first wed­ding, and a hur­ri­cane briefly de­railed the se­cret plans for his sec­ond, but the 84-year-old has fi­nally said “I do” again this time with — his brother serv­ing as best man.

The brother, Gor­don Wood, told the Bucks County Courier Times he had been hop­ing for a while that Wayne Wood would marry his girl­friend of 2½ years, Joyce Mary Gar­ren.

He had been un­able to at­tend his younger brother’s first wed­ding be­cause he was serv­ing on a sub­ma­rine in the Korean War.
