Altoona (WQOW) – An Altoona resident is turning 104! His friends at Grace Lutheran Communities threw him a birthday bash on Tuesday to celebrate.
Harry Boehm celebrated turning 104 with his family and friends.
“My wife and I walked for 20 years,” Boehm said.
“It’s a big milestone to make it to 104 and remember a lot of it,” said Linda Holzhausen with Grace Lutheran Communities.
The party was a small gesture for the man many agree has spent his life making others happy.
“He is a wonderful, sweet man,” Holzhausen said. “He greets everybody who comes past his room with a wave.”
“Just a true optimist,” said Harry’s son Kevin. “Everyday is a good day. He’s always positive.”
Boehm officially turns 104 on Friday.
Happy Birthday from everyone at News 18!
