Bill Grun of Doylestown, Pennsylvania, wanted to be firefighter when he grew up, it just took a little longer to happen, but hey, better late than never!
He worked as a teacher for many years, however, he never gave up on his dream to ride in a fire truck, so on his 97th birthday, Ladder 79 showed up outside his window to take him for the ride of his life!
Bill told ABC News that his secret to living a good, long life is:
“Attitude, you make up your mind that life is going to be good, and it is. As Orphan Annie always said, ‘The sun will come out tomorrow.’”
And when he turns 98? Bill says he wants to go on a helicopter ride.
