My Great Uncle Tibor passed at age 104. The assisted living nurse found him in his easy chair, right hand holding a crushed can of Budweiser. So probably a stroke in his sleep.

The family saying is God forgot, and The Devil don’t want the competition.

Tibor, and and my grandfather Rudolph came to America in the 1920’s as teenagers to live in Chicago with relatives.

They settled in Cleveland. WW2 came,and that’s how they became Americans. After the war, my grandpa went back to Hungary, Tibor stayed. When the Russians came, my grandpa bailed out with my grandma, my dad, and my Uncle Michael.

Tibor became a successful shoe store owner, and my grandpa retired from the post office.

When the grim reaper tells you to hold his beer, don't chug it.

 

Hoist to a long life and rich history, rami.   :cheers:  :cheers:

 

My wife's great aunt passed away at 104 a few years ago. Sharp woman right up to the end when her body literally ceased functioning on just about every level. She just sorta faded out. We tried to get her name mentioned on the Today Show. No dice, not special enough.

 

But she was.

Thanks everyone.

The funniest thing about him was his English. No trace of European Accent at all. Hard Cleveland, but perfectly terrible in grammar, and syntax. “ YOU FECK ON MEEE!? NO, NO, MY FRIEND, I FECK ON YOU!! Fecking guy lived here almost 90 years, and if you met him for the first time, you would think he was a mush head. I was about 8 or so when I first noticed it, so he had already been in America for around 50 years, and said You boys, you agavate me too much”. I said aggravate? He said That’s what I said next time, don’t be so smart with me, I’ll smack your ears! That was his favorite threat. I’ll smack your ears. It was like he was translating in his head on the fly, and his mouth could never catch up.
