The Leap Year Story I Can’t ResistPosted: March 2, 2012
Another great item via my household’s resident actuary: A centenarian died on Wednesday in Columbia, Ill., exactly 100 years after his birth on Leap Day 1912. The Associated Press reports that George Keller was surrounded by family and friends when he died, 100 years but only 25 actual birthdays old.
Keller grew up in St. Louis and was a lifelong Cardinals fan who remembered all his team’s World Series championships, the AP reports. In an interview a week before he died he described himself as “the luckiest guy in the world.” A very sweet story.
