A landmark birthday: No. 114
A Montana resident believed to be the world’s oldest man is celebrating his 114th birthday.
Walter Breuning planned to attend an invitation-only birthday party at the Rainbow Retirement Community in downtown Great Falls.
He was expected to have cake and deliver a speech at the party, which was to include Gov. Brian Schweitzer and representatives from Guinness World Records.
Breuning was born on Sept. 21, 1896, in Melrose, Minn., and moved to Montana in 1918. He worked for the Great Northern Railway for 50 years. His wife, Agnes, died in 1957.
