Decatur man celebrates 105th birthday

Posted:

DECATUR -- Turning 100 is considered a milestone for many, but one Decatur man is celebrating turning 105.

It was a very special birthday party at Imboden Creek Living Center Wednesday afternoon for Virgil Coffman's "Big 105."

Coffman has only lived at the nursing home for a couple weeks.  He lived on his own until getting sick in November.

He said his secret for staying young is doing what he wants to do.

"I've always done just what I want to do," said Coffman. "And I guess that's the way to live."

Back in 2010 Coffman bought a brand new yellow Camaro sports car.  He said doing what makes you happy is the key to staying happy.
