World's Oldest Man Dies

Walter Breuning, a Minnesota native, died at age 114 as the world's oldest man, The Star Tribune said. Breuning died on Thursday of natural causes in Great Falls, Montana. He was the oldest man in the world and the second-oldest person following Besse Cooper who was born about a month earlier. Breuning was living at Rainbow Senior Living retirement home when he passed. Breuning was born on 21 September 1896, in Minnesota, The Guardian said. Breuning lived a long eventful life, of which he spent time in Minnesota working for Henry Ford's first assembly line in 1913. He was a teenager when offered the low-level job with the Great Northern Railway in Melrose, Minnesota. His secrets to living a long life, which he exposed, involved embracing change, working as long as you can, and to always help each other.
