Kennewick man turns 100 today

Posted: Updated:

A big birthday celebration at Life Care Center in Kennewick for a man turning 100 today.

Philip Gegg was born in 1910 and has been married for over 60 years. At the Life Care Center workers say it's been years since they've had someone turn 100.

The party included music, cake and all of Philip's family members enjoying the day. They say a lifetime of farming and eating well has helped him reach this age.  

"It's an accomplishment," his son Denis said. "Nobody in the family has lived passed 97. Dad's made it to 100."

 Denis says his father is mostly in good health even at the age of 100.
