This guy totally kicked 100′s butt!

Walter Breuning of Great Falls Montana passed away yesterday– at 114 years old! He was, according to the Los Angeles-based Gerontology Research Group, the oldest man, and the second oldest person,  in the world. The oldest person? Besse Cooper of Monroe, Ga. — born 26 days earlier.

In an interview this past October, Breuning told the Associated Press his secrets to long life:

— Embrace change, even when the change slaps you in the face. (“Every change is good.”)

— Eat two meals a day (“That’s all you need.”)

— Work as long as you can (“That money’s going to come in handy.”)

— Help others (“The more you do for others, the better shape you’re in.”)

One more secrect:  Accept death.

“We’re going to die. Some people are scared of dying. Never be afraid to die. Because you’re born to die,” he said.

Breuning died of natural causes in a Great Falls hospital where he had been a patient for much of April with an undisclosed illness reports a spokeswoman for the Rainbow Senior Living retirement home where Breuning lived.
