Friends and family celebrated a very special birthday for a young man…who turned 102 years old.

They call Frank Iacono young because he is still popular at his home at Highlands Assisted Living in Providence.

He actually still lived at home with his wife until this past year.

The Air Force vet credits his good health to love, the love of his wife, and his love of music. 

“People ask…what's your secret. I don't know. I was happily married and I played the violin. I loved to play the violin.”

“He's amazing. I don't know really what he's made of. He's amazing,” said Mary, Frank’s wife.

Frank and Mary have been married for 67 years.
