Albany man celebrates 100th birthday

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany man celebrated his 100th birthday today.

"Mac" McIntyre and his friends with the Y-M-C-A Aquatics Breakfast Club celebrated with a party at the Cracker Barrel.

Mac and his wife Charlene swim at the Y and enjoy breakfast every month with the group.

He trained aircraft gunners during World War Two.  Then worked as a mechanics supervisor at the Marine Base for 27 years.

He says he really doesn't have a secret for longevity.

"I don't know how I made it," said McIntyre.  "I think good living, hard work. "

Mrs. McIntyre says Mac stays active working in his greenhouse and playing with his dog, but never gets in a hurry.

Happy Birthday Mac, and we hope many more.
