He lives in an Assisted Living Center in Purcell, Oklahoma. (My Mom lived there with him until last August when she needed full nursing home care. She is now in a nursing home a few blocks from the Assisted Living Center.) My oldest brother and his wife provided a large cake and ice cream which was shared by our family members and the other residents of the center. We took our oldest grand daughter, Emma, with us and she had a good time with her Great Grandpa. He also had a big time showing her some of the memorabilia he has collected in his many travels over the years. He also made sure she got to take home some of the trinkets he has collected. It was a great day and everyone had a good time. The only down side was not having Mom there with us. Come this May my parents will have been married for 74 years. This is Dad's first birthday without Mom at his side. HAPPY BIRTHDAY POP!
