GULFPORT, MS (WCMH) — William “Wild Bill” Allen is just another example of it’s never too late to find love.
“I believe I am as close to paradise as I am going to get on this Earth,” Allen told the Sun Herald.
Allen, a retired Navy Chief married Jamie Simpson Shubert, 76, in a ceremony earlier this month.
The two first started off as friends, but then, it turned into something more.
“I waited, ah, about 40 years now, for him to come along,” said Shubert.
They both reside at the armed forces retirement home in Mississippi.
