One of Methuselah’s Children — Living in Florida at 107

Posted in Culture by TeeJaw on Monday, January 17, 2011, 8: 15 PM

Leonard McCracken lives in Florida where he has been retired since 1969. At 107, he offers investment advice and a word or two on staying healthy:

    “McCracken has hung onto his health and his wits and has had no major medical bills at all throughout his entire life. It has only been in the last year that he’s needed a little assistance. And even then, he doesn’t need much, his son says.”

If he’s 107 he was born in 1904, or 1903 if he’s going to be 108 sometime in 2011. There’s a picture with the story. He looks pretty good. There are probably a lot more like him than we think.
