BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Meet Bro. Robert Butler. The 100-year-old World War II veteran had a very special day on Saturday.

The local centenarian was born on July 26, 1921 in West Feliciana Parish.

On Saturday, Butler held court as cars drove by and helped the 100-year-old man celebrate his birthday.

Butler said, “I think it was a great honor and it was something that I would have never thought in my lifetime that I would live long enough to see it.”

The father of four is retired from the Louisiana Training Institute.

Butler is a member of the Greater King David Baptist Church.

In his free time, Butler enjoys gardening and fishing.

Happy Birthday Mr. Butler.
