ORE CITY, TEXAS (KLTV) - It was a celebration of a century of life for a member of the greatest generation.
Hundreds of friends and family turned out in Ore City on July 21 to wish a “Happy 100th Birthday” to Hosea McCain, affectionately know in town as “Grampa.”
A World War II army veteran, McCain is still active and loves to hunt, fish and garden.
He says the secret to a long and good life is simple:
“I never did drink. Didn’t smoke. That might have helped a little. Might not," McCain said. “I don’t even drink coffee. Do the best you can. Treat everybody right. I appreciate it and I love everybody that’s here.”
His family says he loves spending time with his many grandchildren and the many other that consider him Grampa.
