A East Texas man celebrates his 100th birthday.

"Emory Kindle" celebrated as family, friends, and church members serenaded him with a Happy Birthday song.

Kindle has lived in Tatum all his life. He says the secrete to a long life is serving your fellow man.

"Living right and serving the Lord, that's what kept me going. I never mistreated nobody. I whooped a few people though, exclaimed Kindle, as he laughed. Oh yes, I whooped a few people,  but I was still treating them right too, cause they needed it."

Mr. Kindle says his 100th birthday wish is to be blessed to live 10 more years.
